Debutantes, The – The Debutantes [WHITE VINYL Detroit 1960s!!!] – New LP
Simply essential set of Motor City girl group. You get the A & B sides of all 3 of their 7" (without spending four-figures collecting the original releases from 1966 and 1967) as well as a bunch of great unreleased cuts, moving between moody and uptempo numbers, one original by leader Jan McClellan and a bunch of covers, the much covered "Shake a Tail Feather," Stones "Last Time," Mickey and Silvia's "Love is Strange," Sonny Bono's "I Got You Babe," Leiber-Stoller's "Kansas City," Smokey Robinson's "A Breath Taking Guy," The Ronettes' "Be My Baby," Mann-Weil's "We Gotta Get Out of this Place," even Ellington's "Caravan"! If you don't like this, I know what your problem might be: You might be a dipshit. -- winch (Green Noise)

"Jan McClellan and a rotating cast of Motor City kitties shattered hearts and glass ceilings from ’64 to ’69, busting out three sought after 45s and quietly putting to tape nine more recordings! The tapes have been found and those nine unreleased cuts combine with the coveted six to form the first-ever Debutantes LP! A cohesive raucous bundle of raw joy, including a take on the Andre Williams penned “Shake A Tail Feather,” a gender bending spin on “If You Wanna Be Happy,” a Stones cut, and so much more! Features a gatefold jacket with photos galore and notes by WFMU’s Glynis Ward. On colored vinyl and pressed in Detroit, oy vey!"
