The Girl Group Chronicles
After Elvis shipped off to serve his country and before the Beatles wanted to hold your hand, Rock 'n' Roll went through a so-called barren period and desperately needed a shot in the arm to stay relevant. Teen idols like Fabian and Frankie Avalon just weren't cutting it, and baby-boomers couldn't relate to older crooners and novelty acts. They needed a sound of their own - and they found it in groups of teenage girls. Providing the soundtrack to a generation of young lovers, good-bad rebels, the candy store crowd and soulful swingers were artists with names like the Shirelles, the Ronettes, the Crystals, the Shangri-las, the Supremes, the Chiffons, the Pixies Three, the Toys, the Cookies, the Rag Dolls - and hundreds more whose time in the spotlight was as brief as a kiss on the cheek.
These are their stories and their sounds... the Girl Group Chronicles. >>>presented by Will Stos

Guide to all the Girl Groups - List of Artists
The girl groups sound was one of the most popular rock & roll genres in the early '60s.

The vocalists often came from gospel and R&B backgrounds, while their creators were schooled in traditional pop, Follow this link here to a comprehensive list of web sites and pages on all the girl groups of the 1960s.

Guide to all the Female Vocalists - List of Artists

By definition, female vocalists can hardly be called "girl groups". However, many solo singers of the 1960s sang material written in the girl group style and were produced in the same fashion as the girl groups themselves. Fans of the genre consider solo singers such as Lesley Gore and Dusty Springfield to be synonymous with the girl group sound.
