The Rebel Kind - Girls With Guitars 3 - Various Artists (2014)

The third and final one (for the moment, let's hope there is more to come!) in the Girls With Guitar Series from Ace Records is The Rebel Kind - Girls With Guitars 3.

You can get more information about the album and how to get it FROM HERE

One of things that strikes me when listening to this series of albums is that there were some pretty talented ladies out there who packed a whole lot of sassiness but for various reasons they rarely seem to have been given the credit they actually deserve.

I can remember reading Joan Jett one time talking about how bad The Runaways were treated when they first started making waves and how no one took them seriously because they were Girls! In the male domintated world of Rock and Roll it always seems that we are taken by surprise when a group of ladies come together, have talent and make amazing music! But it shouldn't amaze us at all.

All-Girl groups were not just a thing of the 1960's. Some of the very first All-Girl bands go right back to the 1920s and 1930s with All-Girl Jazz Bands: The Blue Belles, The Parisian Redheads (later The Bricktops), Lil-Hardin's All-Girl Band, The Ingenues, The Harlem Playgirls, Phil Spitalny's Musical Sweethearts and Helen Lewis and Her All-Girl Jazz Syncopators were popular.

Into the 1960s there were many more than the ones that have been spotlighted in this series.

I think the series highlighted that there were some great bands paving the way for the likes of The Runaways, The Go-Go's, The Bangles, The Bodysnatchers, The The Belle Stars, The Like, The Slits, Dolly Mixture, The Innocents, The Raincoats, Mo-dettes, Girlschool, The Donnas, L7, Rude Girl, Babes In Toyland, The Be Good Tanyas, Dixie Chicks, Girl in a Coma, Halo Friendlies, Indigo Girls, Kleenex, Shonen Knife, Sleater-Kinney, The Spazzys, We've Got A Fuzzbox and We're Gonna Use It, and Maid of Ace to name but a few!
