Juke Box Pearls - GO, GIRL, GO!

GO, GIRL, GO!
A  Bear Family Records series spotlights women who rocked.
A completely new slant on the rock 'n' roll era!
The first volume is an anthology of some well-known female rockers, like Charline Arthur and Rose Maddox, together with some rarities, and some surprises!

You thought rock 'n' roll was a boys-only club? Think again! Bear Family Records series, JUKE BOX PEARLS. They rock! They roll! They're girls! And they really tear it up! So just when you think you've heard it all and there's nothing to do except play it again, share your CD player with the first four compilations in Bear Family's JUKE BOX PEARLS. Some volumes are single-artist, some will be compilations. Bear Family starts with a mix.

The lead-off volume, simply titled JUKE BOX PEARLS, includes a broad range of girl singers, most of them originally from country music. We have the original queens of the hop, like Charline Arthur, Jean Chapel, Myrna Lorrie, Bonnie Lou, Rose Maddox, Janis Martin, Jean Shepard, and Margie Singleton. Plus some real surprises, like Loretta Lynn rockin' her heart out, and great unknowns like Carol Jarvis and Roberta Shorewood. The extensive and deeply researched notes tell the story of every singer and her struggle to be heard.

When Connie Francis was singing Where The Boys Are, these girls were singing like the boys were in their hotel rooms.

If you think that female rock 'n' roll started with Imelda May, think again!
