Lois Wilkinson (later professionally aka Lois Lane) and Andrea Simpson got together to record a few demos in 1963. Lois , who also played guitar, had the musical connections and played said demos including our album title track to Harry Robinson, and in turn Ritz Productions impresario Bunny Lewis. A re-cut of You Don t Have To Be Baby To Cry made by Lewis was leased to Decca – a no.6 UK & no.3 US smash hit resulted, and a pop career was born.
Included here are their one LP, also released in 1963, plus their subsequent eight singles and one EP leased to different labels up to 1968. All properly reissued for the first time. Stand outs include the major hit, gorgeous versions of Winter sHere retitled as You Are Here, the Gene Pitney song True Love Never Runs Smooth, the Everly s So Sad, and the Spectoresque folk rock tour de force Hey Mama You’ve Been On My Mind. Produced with full assistance of Lois and Andrea, packaging includes rare photos from their archives and fresh interviews. This is another in the successful line of Brit Girl reissue projects produced by RPM.
