Gibt inzwischen 8 CDs, wobei hier die Nr. 6 doch ein wenig abfällt von den anderen 7 CDs. Um die Serie komplett zu haben, hab ich mir natürlich auch die Nr. 6 schicken lassen.
Wie gesagt, teilweise Titel und Interpreten, die zu Recht gleich wieder in der Versenkung veschwunden sind.

Those girls licking lollipops on the cover are the Goodees, whose biggest hit was the camp classic "Condition Red," which is on Where The Girls Are, Volume 1. Here they are represented by a monumental "slice of Southern Gothic," "Jilted," from 1969. Other tracks, notably the extremely rare "That's no way (to spend my time)" go back to 1962; so the compilation is wide ranging.
The styles are also varied, from the "garage girls" sound of Kathy Lynn and the Playboys (although one of their two tracks here, "Little Baby," features a hunting horn and grand piano), to the elaborately crafted Bright Tunes productions for the Chiffons and the Cinnamons. "Walk Tall" by 2 of Clubs and "I Can't Hear You No More" by Pat Powdrill in particular seem to get the most from the least- these arrangements are stripped down but powerful.
Several of these songs seem to out-supreme the Supremes, however impossible that sounds metaphysically. "No More Tears," especially, but also Felice Taylor's "Captured by your love," and The Belles' "Cupid's got a hold on me," which is unbelievably good for an unreleased song. "Sugar Plum (Give me some)," by Little Eva, is a plum indeed. Well played and sung, and as far from The Loco-Motion as Pet Sounds is from Surfin' Safari.
This is not to say that WTGA6 consists of bottom-of-the-barrel stuff -- it doesn't. In fact, pretty much every track on this disc is professional, competent, and a pleasant listen. Unfortunately, for most listeners, there's also not a whole lot on this disc that will demand repeated listens, or stick with you after it's done.
As with other weak volumes in this inconsistent series, the culprit is usually pedestrian songwriting, rather than any production or performance issues. This means that what you get with WTGA6 are sincere, spirited and well-recorded (and well-mastered) performances of unexceptional material. Standing out a little from the crowd are a few stronger tracks by Barbara Mills, 2 of Clubs, The Belles and Pat Powdrill ... but even the best of these rate as good-to-slightly-better-than-good, not excellent. (And standing out in the other direction is a truly bizarre mid-70s recording of "Why Do Lovers Break Each Others Heart" by 60's girl-group star Reparata -- it's arranged to sound almost exactly like the Captain & Tennille's "Love Will Keep Us Together"!)
Collectors and completists will want this, of course, but even they will probably first turn to other volumes of this series when it comes time to just sit back and listen for pleasure. Everyone else, meanwhile, can probably safely skip this volume, and look for other, stronger girl-group compilations.
OK, If you're a music "purist" and can only accept versions of pop tunes done by the original artists that made the classics famous, this may or may not be a collection for you. If you can still enjoy a variety of lesser-known singers and covers done in their own interpretations, this CD could still be very enjoyable! For example, in my own opinion I prefer Lulu's version of "I Can't Hear You (No More)" - Pat Powdrill; and I like an obscure British group's (New Faces) version of "Walk Tall Like a Man" better than The 2 of Clubs. But the interpretations done here are to me, just fine - I still like the versions I like, though!
Lastly, among this collection of the serious to the silly, my favorite gorgeous composition is hands-down: "Big Time Operator" by Joan Moody. Among the most fun, IMO is "Little Baby" (Kathy Lynn & the Playboys) with its "Grinch horn" in the beginning & end of the song (...the Grinch sounding his trumpet...as he ascended Mount Crumpet...)! Overall a fun, collectable compilation!
