Destroy That Boy! More Girls With Guitars - Various Artists (2009)

The second release from Ace Records spotlighting Girls With Guitars was Destroy That Boy! More Girls With Guitars.

From Ace Records' Website Description:
“Destroy That Boy!”, the sequel to 2004’s “Girls With Guitars”, delves into the world of garage femmes and all-girl bands in a quest to prove that females of the species do indeed rock, roll and even snarl. In the post-Beatles beat boom, many an impressionable lass was inspired to take guitar in hand and toe the line with their male counterparts, with at least 160 touring female bands in the USA alone. A select few hit the recording studio to leave their aural mark on the decade, from which Ace has melded the cream of crop with some solo sisters to create another healthy 24-track dose of girl garage goodness.

I do love this one, Raylene & The Blue Angels doing Shakin' All Over is magnificent and probably one of the first times I had ever heard it sung by a female. Add to that She Trinity doing He Fought The Law, again probably the first time I had ever heard it performed with a female voice. There's some British interest on the album as well as two amazing tunes from Swedish Starlet Ann-Margret who was more famous in film and on TV than as a singer, though she had actually released a fair few singles and albums in her time!
