Ask the Girl Who Knows: Best of 1958 - 1969 [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
2008 compilation containing everything you wanted to hear by Philadelphia's multitalented and mysterious Claudine Clark, including some alternate takes, great unissued tracks and a Northern Soul rarity. Claudine's Top 5 record 'Party Lights' was a great example of the early Philadelphia sound. Her recording of 'The Strength to Be Strong' is regarded as a Deep Soul classic, thanks to a five-star review by Dave Godin in 1966. Girl group fans collect her records and she appeals to Soul buffs too. Her single 'The Telephone Game' is a popular item on the Northern Soul scene. This CD contains many tracks unavailable elsewhere, including a great previously unissued version of 'Buttered Popcorn', the Supremes song. Claudine recorded for six labels, all of which are included. She also recorded under a couple of pseudonyms and those tracks are included too. 24 tracks. Ace.
