There are several 'special' nights in everyone's life. The night of their first prom, the breathless time when they receive their first kiss, the night that they first meet that someone special and think that this is the one that they would like to be with the rest of their life. These happy occasions and some sad ones are primarily what THE SHIRELLES have gotten together to sing about in this album. And sing they do! Some of their old hits and some new songs that I'm sure you'll find have the same great quality that made the SHIRELLES the hottest young girl group in the record business.

The Shirelles all come from Passaic, New Jersey, a small town which is about 15 miles from New York City. The girls, Addie, Doris, Shirley and Beverly were discovered during a rehearsal of a school show that they were in at Passaic High School. They were singing a song entitled 'I Met Him On A Sunday" when the daughter of an executive in the music business heard them and got the girls to sing the song for her mother, the President of SCEPTER RECORDS. The rest is history. The record became one of the biggest hits in the country at the time, and it started them off on their career in show business. They graduated from Passaic High School and then concentrated on their singing so that they could come up with that something special that gives a group a sound that keeps them popular. That 'something special' was achie-ved and is now identifiable as the sound that belongs only to the SHIRELLES.

The girls introduce themselves, on each side of the record, by way of one of their big hits. On one side they lead off with their latest, 'TONIGHT'S THE NIGHT', it also being the title of this album.
The other side starts off with 'DEDICATED TO THE ONE I LOVE', which has become somewhat of a standard with teenagers. The girls show their versatility by singing their way through a variety of songs; some with a beat, some slow and dreamy, but all of them with that certain feel that only the SHIRELLES have for a song. Their versatility is furthered by the fact that each of the girls can sing the lead with out the group losing that 'SHIRELLE' sound.

So enjoy the songs in this album and the special meaning some of them might have for you because the SHIRELLES did make this album with that in mind.  (Marv Schlachter)

The Shirelles

Will You Love Me Tomorrow

The Shirelles were the top girl group in the country in 1960. They had an impressive seller that summer with the sleek Tonight's The Night, but their coronation was due to a remorseful theme written by young New York composers Carole King and Gerry Goffin. Lyrically,Will You Love Me Tomorrow was fairly heavy stuff, lead singer Shirley Owens wondering if her lover would treat her the same way the next day after they'd had sex (one had to read between the lines). Owens had initially informed Luther Dixon, her producer at Florence Greenberg's Scepter Records, that she didn't think she could sing the tune because it was too country!

Will You Love Me Tomorrow didn't sound country at all by the time The Shirelles got done with it. King, in charge of the music, and lyricist Goffin worked for Aldon Music, the domain of Al Nevins, formerly of The Three Suns, and street-smart Don Kirshner. Located at 1650 Broadway, up the street from Manhattan's Brill Building, the publishing firm specialized in youth-oriented material tailor-made for the violin-enriched uptown soul productions that The Shirelles favored as female counterparts to The Drifters. King went all out on the sumptuous arrangement; Dixon's production technique was similarly top-notch.

With the less ambitious but thoroughly delightful rocker Boys, penned by Dixon and Wes Farrell (and later recorded by no less than the Beatles), on the B-side, the sparkling ballad cracked the pop charts in November of 1960 and rocketed to #1 by late January of '61, missing the same happy fate on the R&B side by one slot. Owens, Addie 'Micki' Harris, Doris Coley, and Beverly Lee had come a long way from their Passaic, New Jersey beginnings and their first small hit for Decca, I Met Him On A Sunday (Ronde-Ronde).
