Vampisoul presents a compilation of Spanish girl groups circa 1962-1974. Spanish girl pop made itself present when it was necessary. Oblivious to the scarcity of exciting sounds that late-Francoist Spain offered them, the Spanish girls disregarded conventions and overcame all barriers and suspicions without letting the latest fashionable hairdo get ruined. In those doubtful years during which, apart from copla, any other music style was considered highly suspicious, the leading girls didn't hesitate and abandoned themselves to the whole musical range, both local and international, at their disposal. Despite the difficulties, and there were many, the incipient permeability of Spanish politics of the time played its part and, from 1963 onwards, female ye-yé became an absolute reality that shook the Spanish society of the period. A true salvation, a social panacea, that's what female ye-yé was in 1960s Spain, a small revolution of customs dressed in a mini-skirt and playing at 45 rpm. In the wake of its charm, modernity and intrinsically female character, everyone in Spain became ye-yé and the social landscape gained freedom following the trail left by the girls. Thanks to it, girls were subsequently able to take part in the beat, garage, soul, psychedelia and prog scenes as well. For a while now, various compilations have been released in Spain documenting styles, scenes and artists belonging to such happening decades (creatively speaking) as the '50s, '60s and '70s, and nevertheless, there hasn't been one featuring only female contributions to the cause. When compiling ¡Chicas!, all genres were considered: Latin, rock & roll, twist, ye-yé, beat, garage, rhythm & blues, soul, etc. Secondly, apart from celebrating all the shining artists featured here, there are also a great number of recordings released on the Catalan label, Belter. Discover once again for the first time the unbelievable legacy of the Belter factory as well as these revolutionary women. Includes sleeve notes by expert Vicente Fabuel as well as a fantastic selection of record sleeves and photographs.
