Following on from Ace's well-received compilation Boy Trouble, here comes another batch of vintage girls from the vaults of maverick producer Gary S Paxton. 'Keep A Hold On Him (More Garpax Girls)' brings together rare singles, related releases and several unissued gems, for another fun-filled romp through the golden era of Hollywood girl groups, 1961 to 1966.

Several of Paxton's female acts make repeat appearances including Beverly Williams, Beatrice Lee (previously misidentified as Beatrice Kay) and the Rev-Lons. There are names familiar to girl group aficionados such as Josephine Sunday, plus early rarities from Dorothy Berry with the Idols and the Swans. Along with Paxton's idiosyncratic production technique, it all makes for a highly entertaining programme. The package benefits from first-hand interviews with many of the women featured, as well as Paxton and his associates, for an authoritative overview of a fascinating era.

'Keep A Hold On Him' is thus a must for any serious girl group enthusiast. Compilation and notes by Alec Palao
