The Dreamers to The Blossoms
Evolution Of A Girl Group CD


Famously described as The most successful unknown group of the '60s, The Blossoms evolved out of The Dreamers, via The Rollettes and The Playgirls.
Nonetheless just about everybody has actually heard them sing, because in addition to cutting their own records, they sang - either unbilled or under pseudonyms - on several big hit records of the era.
This collection gathers all their own 45s, starting in 1954 as The Dreamers through to 1962 when they had become The Blossoms, most of which are as exceptionally rare.
Also included are some of their “guest appearances”, backing artists like Richard Berry, Ed Townsend, Shelley Fabares, Duane Eddy and Bob B. Soxx & The Blue Jeans, and most famously The Crystals for whom they ‘deputised’ on the Phil Spector-produced hits He’s A Rebel and He’s Sure The Boy I Love.
This is the first time that this body of work has been thus compiled, presenting the girls’ own rare collectable 45s alongside their hits recorded as session singers.
