He's a Rebel


 2022 Charity Shop Purchases #68 - Various Artists - He's a Rebel - The Girl Groups of the 60s

I know what you are thinking - why is he claiming this as a new charity shop purchase when he bought it in the Community Shop in Newton Stewart in 2019 and has previously featured disc 2 and disc 3 before?

There is in fact a simple explanation. The Newton Stewart purchase only contained 2 out of the 3 discs whereas the one recently purchased in Blairgowrie has all three.

I knew I had it but couldn't remember if it was a physical copy or a digital one. The spreadsheet wasn't a help as only a few compilations have been included so far

The Newton Stewart one has now gone back to charity. Now you may think that some poor sod is only getting 2 discs instead of three but they are actually getting 40 tracks. I bought it for that reason in the full knowledge that one disc was missing.

I've gone for three acts that weren't included when discs 2 and 3 were featured.

I'm starting with track1 , disc 1 with The Crystals singing the song that the disc is named after.They are followed by The Marvelettes with Beechwood 4-5789.

The Duke of Earl has featured here before so it is only fair that the Duchess of Earl also gets an airing with Bobbie Smith & the Dream Girls doing the honours.
