THE SHANGRI-LAS - THE SWEET SOUNDS OF SUMMER
Perfect for the final, waning days of summertime, this song was recorded in the last days of girl group giants The Shangri-Las (it was their second to last release, before the hurt of the music business and litigation stopped their run of superb singles).
As it was 1967, this record follows the brief trend of psychedelic meltdown bridges (think "Susan" by the Buckinghams and "My World Fell Down" by Sagittarius) amidst the gorgeous lamenting verses with their patented, street tough New York harmonies.
