"Hearts For Sale" is the fifth and latest in our series of 12-inch vinyl albums spotlighting the US girl group sound of the 1960s. The collection opens with 'Street Dance' by Bonnie Jean, a little-known must-have for collectors of the genre, with Darlene Love and the Blossoms clearly audible on background vocals. Issued on Lew Bedell's Doré label, this exciting faux-live deck in the style of Shirley Ellis' 'The Nitty Gritty' was written by Guy Hemric and Jerry Styner, a hip team known for supplying songs for the soundtracks of B movies such as Muscle Beach Party and Thunder Alley. The Hollywood-based Doré imprint is also the source of 'You Really Never Know Till It's Over' by the Vel-Vetts (which shares a backing track with the Superbs' 'I Was Born When You Kissed Me'), 'One Way Street' by the Swans, a soulful update of the Teddy Bears' 'To Know Him Is To Love Him' by the Darlings and - featuring lead vocals by Sheilah Page, a former member of groups such as the Bermudas, Becky & the Lollipops, the Majorettes, Joanne & the Triangles and Beverly & the Motor Scooters - 'He's Groovy' by the Front Page & Her. Other highlights include the Sweethearts' Supremes-influenced 'No More Tears', the sophisticated slowie 'Lonely Girl' by the Lovettes (that's them on the front sleeve), 'My Heart Tells Me So' by the Del-Phis (an early incarnation of Martha & the Vandellas) and the Fran-Cettes' terrific recording of 'Heart For Sale'. As with the earlier volumes in the series, the album comes with a fully-illustrated inner bag featuring a 2,500-word track commentary by compiler Mick Patrick.
