Album artwork for The Rebel Kind: Girls With Guitars 3 by Various

The Rebel Kind is the third in Ace's occasional series of guitar-centric 1960s girl pop compilations. Half the tracks here are by genuine guitar-wielding all-girl bands, including the Debutantes from Detroit, Los Angeles quartet the Girls, Goldie and the Gingerbreads from New York, Pinky Chicks from Japan, the Honeybeats from Italy and San Francisco s Ace Of Cups. It might seem somewhat unlikely, but the Chantels are the featured musicians on the instrumental Peruvian Wedding Song. Thanks to acknowledged classics such as 'He's Gone' and 'Maybe', it's beyond all doubt that the girls could really sing. Who knew they could also play? It's rather ironic that some of the most striking records to emerge from mid-60s Britain were the work of an American producer. Beat combo Colette and the Bandits riff-driven 'A Ladies Man' is up there with the 45s Shel Talmy produced at the time on the Kinks and the Who. Talmy also produced Goldie and the Gingerbreads 'Please, Please', another prime example of British beat, but one recorded by an American group. Brenda Lee's wild update of 'What d'I Say' and Jackie DeShannon's folk rock nugget 'Dream Boy' were also recorded in the UK, in each case with the young Jimmy Page on guitar. He also plays on Dana Gillespie's cult favourite 'You Just Gotta Know My Mind'. Some other noteworthy guys help out elsewhere: Kiwi duo the Chicks great version of Lee Hazlewood's 'The Rebel Kind' features the Mike Perjanik Group with Doug Jerebine on guitar; the Turtles back-up teenage trio the Chymes on their jangly 'He's Not There Anymore'; chart band the Mob play on Mousie and the Traps 'How About You'; Gail Harris live recording of 'I Idolize You' features the Wailers; and the Milkshakes provide the instrumentation on the Delmonas Peter Gunn Locomotion (the only non-60s track here, not that you'd notice). Other highlights include Jean and the Statesides 'Putty In Your Hands', which knocks spots off the Shirelles original and the Yardbirds cover, Lydia Marcelle s new-to-CD rocker 'The Girl He Needs', and 'International Girl' by the Beas, who sound like the Bangles 20 years ahead of their time.LP - 180 Gram Crimson Vinyl with Heavy Duty Jacket.
