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.Read more ›
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

While the song selection is pretty good, the sound quality is terrible!Very muddy and distorted. It really detracts from their unique, sweet voices. Read morePublished on January 27, 2009 by nsw
