Product Review:

Numero Group’s Basement Beehive: The Girl Group Underground compilation is a stunning tribute to the lost era of girl group music. Spanning the 1950s and 1960s, this double LP culls together some of the most vibrant and heartfelt songs from this era, featuring a plethora of lesser-known acts such as The Four J's, The Chantells and Vickie & The Van Dykes.

The collection offers up a broad range of styles from Doo Wop to Rock & Roll to Soul, all unified by their ebullient energy and soaring harmonies. Lead single 'I'll Never Know' by The Chantells is an infectious blast of upbeat R&B that perfectly encapsulates the compilation’s timeless appeal. Elsewhere there are blissful pop gems like 'My Fault' by The Passionetts, gritty R&B numbers like Charles Pikes & The Scholars’ 'Unlucky In Love', and heartbreaking ballads such as Bernadette Carroll's 'Laughing On The Outside'.

Basement Beehive: The Girl Group Underground is an essential document for anyone with even a passing interest in this captivating genre. It serves as both an introduction for those new to the music and an exciting rediscovery for those already familiar with it - packaged with Numero Group's usual impeccable attention to detail on pink leopard swirl vinyl no less!
