Editorial Reviews

It's hard to overstate the importance of Fanny s 1970 debut album. For the first time, a group of women (sisters June and Jean Millington, Alice De Buhr and Nickey Barclay) wrote and sang their own songs, played their own instruments and, perhaps most importantly, rocked just as hard as any male band out there. And, as the first all female band signed to a major label (Reprise) and with superstar producer Richard Perry at the board, these four women became perhaps L.A.'s biggest "buzz band," landing repeated bookings at the Whisky-a-Go-Go with a who s who of rock's glitterati in attendance. But, without a reference point with which to review them, the rock press was less than kind, often dismissing them as a novelty act. Fanny would have to become that reference point, and so they did for the generations of female rockers to come after them, from Joan Jett to Girlschool to Courtney Love and beyond. They were truly the Godmothers of Chick Rock.
Now, Real Gone Music is proud to reissue, for the first time on a stand-alone CD, the self-titled debut release from Fanny, complete with the original gatefold album art and sporting new liner notes from none other than June Millington, whose tales will take you inside the studio and out to the front lines of rock's feminist makeover. Grrl power starts here!

It's been said before, time and time again (particularly in the last decade)....the importance of Fanny, rock's premiere all-female band, can't be overstated. They were, and still are, the best, and, along with Suzi Quatro, kicked down the doors for everyone from The Runaways, the GoGo's and the Bangles to Melissa Etheridge, Antigone Rising and Pink.
As strong as the singing and playing is on the group's 1970 debut ~ now out on CD for the first time! ~ one other fact keeps jumping out at me. It absolutely blows my mind that these young girls ~ yes, GIRLS!...during the year it took to record FANNY, the band members were in their late teens and early twenties! ~ were able to go into the studio without any reference point whatsoever (O.K., other than a male one!) and still come up with an album of absolutely authoratative, compelling rock.
FANNY is definitely the band's least cohesive release, but it's rare that a group's debut effort is the apex of their career (I can think of maybe one or two, and even that's debatable!). The amount of growth between FANNY and CHARITY BALL, then CHARITY BALL and FANNY HILL, was stunning...I mean, we're talking less than 18 months here!
That said, FANNY has more than a few special moments that proved these four ladies were the real deal right from the get go....and still are!
If I had one major gripe with FANNY it would have to be that I don't think they used the remastered tapes that were used on the band's 2002 boxed set...the mix seems a lot muddier here. Nowhere is this more evident than on the opening cut, the shimmering "Come And Hold Me." On the boxed set, the track took on a new life...drummer Alice de Buhr's creative little percussive bits, June Millington's guitar riffs, the harmonies...they all just popped!

Phenomenal Album. Everyone I play it for, from all generations just loves it. It is truly amazing to hear the progenitors of all female rock bands to come. I've checked out You Tube for the live material and just get blown away. I wish "Fanny Live" were available and affordable. I'm an old Deadhead and this album just completes my late 60's -early 70's collection.

The first & greatest all girl rock band. Way ahead of their time. I saw them live at Reflections nightclub in Cincinnati Oh back in 1971 & they were even better live. 45 years later I still listen to this album on a regular basis.

.... It seems always a fan. This reminds me how "basic" their sound was back then. A couple of guitars, an organ, and drums. Most bands at this point in time, did not have all the finishing touches that all recordings have now. I felt transported back to my college days and still love the song "bitter wine" now as much as I did then.

An iconic band for no other reason than that they were the first girls in the world to break down the sexist bull and show that they were serious, good and to be taken seriously...
