• Ten genuine all-girl bands join forces with similar 60s females of the species on this new volume in our ear-grabbing “Girls With Guitars” series, providing further confirmation that girls can do what the guys do.

• The CD kicks off in great style with three of the best tracks to feature in the series so far: the Belles’ ‘Melvin’, a great gender-switched version of Van Morrison’s ‘Gloria’; a rendering of John Lee Hooker’s ‘Dimples’ by the Missfits; and Girls Take Over’s uninhibited proto-punk treatment of Tommy Tucker’s ‘Hi Heel Sneakers’. The Missfits, a young five-piece from Blackpool with a taste for R&B, also tackle Bo Diddley’s ‘You Can’t Judge A Book By The Cover’ and ‘Chuck Berry’s ‘I’m Talking About You’; all three of their tracks are previously unreleased.

• For the record, lest anyone’s keeping tally, the other featured guitar-toting all-girl bands are She, Goldie & the Gingerbreads, the Debutantes, the Liverbirds, the Beat-Chics, the Ace Of Cups and the Mysteries. Elsewhere, Debbie Williams sings lead with the all-male Unwritten Law, ballsy-voiced Joyce Harris is backed by Texas bar band the Daylighters, the teenage Chymes trio are accompanied by the un-billed Turtles and, well, you get the picture.

• Naturally, those so inclined can learn more about all the artists in the accompanying 24-page booklet containing a picture-packed 4,000-word track commentary by series compiler Mick Patrick.
