Description
"...the 1964 debut LP by girl group The Shangri-Las. The album was produced to capitialize on the group's breakthrough hits "Remember (Walking in the Sand)" and "Leader of the Pack" which had been co-written by Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich. After the album's focal track went to number one, The Shangri Las' style and image had evolved into something tougher and earthier. Much of the material for Leader of the Pack such as "Bull Dog" and "It's Easier To Cry" emphasized their new style. Other songs on the album include cover versions of " Maybe" originally by The Chantels with Betty Weiss on lead vocals, along with " Shout" and "Twist and Shout" both originally by The Isley Brothers. Also on the album is "Give Him A Great Big Kiss" which The Shangri-Las would release as a single later in the year."
