Turns out that the last Spectorian-masterpiece girl group record wasn't, in fact, cut by Phil Spector. This record is a smouldering pot of greatness that may have been seen as slightly out of step at the time, but certainly incorporated a psychedelic air that was very much of the times. L.A based management team discovered the three young ladies who made up The Cake while they were harmonizing together in a New York club, and immediately got to work on getting them a record deal. A deal with Decca Records came about quickly, and the ladies (Jeanette Jacobs, Barbara Morillo and Eleanor Barooshian) were off to L.A to record with Green And Stone as producers, as well as Dr. John collaborator Harold Battiste. In fact, it's essentially Dr. John and band that play on this record.
Dangerous Minds presented an exhaustive chronicle of the group here, but for the sake of brevity I'll just say that this record (their debut 45) did not do as well commercially as expected, and their two albums (the second completed after the group has disbanded) also failed to slice their way to the top.
