Editorial Reviews

Phil Spector worked with some of the greatest girl groups (Ronettes, Crystals) of all time, but which girl group scored him his first hit as a producer? That's right, it was the Paris Sisters with I Love How You Love Me , and this CD collects the A and B-sides of all five singles the group cut with Spector, along with a new stereo mix of the hit. Most of these have never been on CD.

Phil Spector's mighty Wall of Sound was custom-built for his splendid girl groups--The Crystals, The Ronettes, and singer Darlene Love. The Paris Sisters, however, were the first girl group to have a major hit with Spector at the helm. Their ethereal ballad, "I Love How You Love Me," was a Top Five pop smash during the fall of 1961, and marked the beginning of the girl group era. The CD features the A & B sides of all five singles produced by Phil Spector. This is the first time these songs are appearing together on CD, and most are on CD for the first time ever. Features songs by Brill Building songsmiths Barry Mann ("You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin', "On Broadway," and Gerry Goffin and Carole King ("Will You Love Me Tomorrow," "One Fine Day"), as well as songs written by Phil Spector himself.

For many years i have been longing for all the Phil Spector produced tracks of the Paris Sisters,and at last i now have them.Although it isn't the Wall of Sound,the voice of Pricilla is so haunting,and compliments the lack of background sound. lovely Album

I have searched for the Paris Sisters' recording of 'Be My Boy' for so long that I'm becoming an old man. As a 14 year-old my heart melted (and new feelings were aroused) when I first heard Priscilla's breathy voice. So I'm thrilled once again to have her, I mean this album, in my possession. Kudos to Varese for putting together a brief but lovely collection. Priscilla's thwarted career and sad death add to my recollection of a simpler, sweeter time.

While the song selection is pretty good, the sound quality is terrible!Very muddy and distorted. It really detracts from their unique, sweet voices. In fact, the sound quality is so bad in my opinion, not only do I feel taken on the price, but that the sound quality is better on Youtube! What a cheap, poorly executed copy of recordings.

Buyer beware.

Following his initial success with the Teddy Bears' 1958 "To Know Him is To Love Him," Phil Spector's mentor, Lester Sill, arranged for his protégé to apprentice with the legendary Leiber and Stoller in New York. Spector wrote songs, played guitar on various sessions, began producing, and made the acquaintance of the brilliant songwriters of the Brill Building. Upon returning to Los Angeles, Sill tasked him with producing the Paris Sisters for the newly formed Gregmark label. The San Francisco trio had been performing since they were children, and recording since 1953, but despite contracts with Decca and Imperial, they'd failed to break through. Spector's touch would soon change all that.

After four years without a studio date the group found their act radically reshaped by Spector, with their three part Andrews Sisters styled harmonies given over to the girl-group lead-and-backing vocals style. Priscilla Paris' breathy vocals, Spector's unusually restrained production and drowsy tempos gave many of the group's Gregmark singles a unique sound and emotional resonance. Their first side, Spector's "Be My Boy," merges love, hope and longing into the sort of idealized dream that Brian Wilson would emulate in early ballads with the Beach Boys. The Paris Sisters version completely trounces the overwrought original ("Be My Girl") that Spector had recorded as Ray Peterson's B-side to "Corrina, Corrina."

Even though Spector rebalanced the group's vocals, he refrained from modernizing them with a backbeat. Their second single, Barry Mann's "I Love How You Love Me," retained the dreamy lead vocal and languid tempo of the debut, but added a violin that gives the recording an extra voice. Topping out at #5, the Paris Sisters finally had a bona fide hit.

Well those hot Paris sisters relly sizzle here.
The last track is a STEREO remix of "I love how you love me".
It has a wierd noise reduction problem that happens when you use too much
but still worth the price of admission.
"Now that we're through with love" ls a cool song and they even do a rockabilly type tune on here with a guitar that sounds twangy like "on broadway" if you know what I mean.(harvey)
Happy listnin' E.Michael Brydalski
Remember Lana Clarkson who can't defend herself Harvey.

As beautiful as "I Love How You Love Me" is, my personal favorite, which I have yet to hear remastered, as I've only ordered the CD today, is "He Knows I Love Him Too Much". Phil lets their voices suspend in the air as if they were in a giant cavern. The guitar fill is...
