To say that June and Jean Millington are a vital, albeit grossly overlooked, part of rock & roll history is a major understatement. As the co-founders of Fanny, the pioneering (and still, to this day, best!) all-female band, they, along with Suzi Quatro, set the stage for every other female rocker to come along over the next four decades.
Over the years the duo have continued to work together, be it on June's three solo albums, as a duo (1978's LADIES ON THE STAGE and TICKET TO WONDERFUL from 1993) and with a new band, the Slammin' Babes (2000's MELTING POT).
Now, more than a decade after the rather hit-and-miss MELTING POT, the sisters Millington return with PLAY LIKE A GIRL, arguably their best album since MOTHERS PRIDE, June's 1973 swan song with Fanny. While the disc isn't perfect (the production is a tad thin in spots, Jean Milington is woefully underused, students at June's Institute for the Musical Arts are used too much), it's pretty darn close. THIS is the album that many Fanny-atics have been waiting for!
(On a side note, it's so cool to see so many women in their 60's still rockin' hard. Besides the Millington's, Quatro, Stevie Nicks and Deborah Harry ~ with Blondie~ have all released incredably strong albums this year, certainly among some of 2011's best).
PLAY LIKE A GIRL kicks off with it's blistering title track. Full of garage-band energy and youthful swagger, this auto biographical tale is like "Charity Ball" all grown up! The sisters still have those killer harmonies that only siblings seem to be blessed with, while the instrumentation is taut and lively.
In a just world, this would be a huge radio hit, but there are a couple of things that will prevent that from happening. First, there are the lyrics...

It goes without saying that Fanny were the premier female rock group of their time and I'd argue that their concise instrumental prowess and fresh intelligent songwriting put them a notch ahead of the average group of either gender. Why their rich musical legacy has been criminally unrecognised is incomprehensible to me but that might change if June and Jean Millington's 'Play like a Girl' gets heard as it harks back to Fanny at their best and shows where they are right now.

The title track is guarenteed to get the dead rise out of their graves and dance as it is played at an infectious energy level and is June Millington's opening feminist exhortation that you can do what you damn well want. I love Your Hair sharply references back to a previous era as a sixties woman in both senses of the term with lightning fast sharp observations. Jean's fine vocals and funk bass playing comes to the fore in let Love Linger with acid guitar lines. The softer side of the Millington sisters show up in June's tender love song "When You Bottom" and the melodic "Calling Your Name (To The Stars) I must pay tribute to Jean's son, Lee Madeloni as his fine drumming and percussion lends an incisive edge to the ensemble sound that is always there when needed. Jean's bass playing and singing makes a rock solid support as she always has done.The very worthy women musicians of the Institute of the Musical Arts get an airing in this project in "One for Change," a great stomping rocker with gritty harmonisied chorus vocals and the contrasting modern R and B lead vocal stylings of Endless Lies, a syncopated rocker with lyrics that go way beyond what might appear an exhortation to a faithless lover to straighten up.

Basically if you are looking to follow these 2 talented artist/sisters check it out. They still sound great but none of the songs are a "Must Listen" at least for me.

If you are looking to relive the sound of Fanny this ain't it.

All 4 members made the sound not just June and Jean.

The compilation available on Amazon is the way to go including live performance versions is costly but thanks to today's technology you can just purchase the cuts that bring back those memories. I saw them play back in the mid 70's at a place in Cape Cod called On The Rocks and they blew me away. No all female band despite the level of success has put on a better performance Thars my 2 cents.

June and Jean Millington have had a few albums out over the decades since they were half of the original all girls rock group, FANNY, and each one has been excellent. Here again the songs are strong, intelligent, and the musicianship is superb, so why oh why don't more people know about them? That's what promotion does for you, without it you end up with a string of excellent albums and a too small audience. Too bad, as this CD is right up there with their best stuff. Tasty guitar, absolutely killer bass and powerful yet intelligent drumming - BUY IT!

Over 60 now like me but, they still ROCK out! Title cut sounds like Fanny from the 70s. June and Jean still great, still doing gigs!
