Ace follow up their recent release of Lesley Gore's Magic Colors The Lost Album with this expanded reissue of her fourth LP Girl Talk, recorded in 1964 with producer Quincy Jones. The album's original liner notes mourn the influx of twanging guitars, psychedelic sounds and moaning voices and hail Lesley for singing in tune and pronouncing the lyrics of a song so they are understandable; the USA was smack in the midst of Beatlemania at the time. Lesley Gore, like so many American artists navigating the music scene, had to contend with the British Invasion, but she managed to weather the changing climate and remain in the Top 20 from It's My Party in 1963 through to California Nights in 67. Girl Talk hinted of an artist moving beyond her teenybopper years and eager to expand her musical palette. Album opener Hey Now was risky far more feisty and rhythmic than her usual material. Maybe I Know and Look Of Love , proved that teenage pop could be smart and gimmick-free, and established a relationship between Lesley and songwriter Ellie Greenwich, who penned the songs with her husband Jeff Barry. Ellie, along with singers Jean Thomas and Mikie Harris, were integral to the making of the album, providing its lush tones and girl group feel. In addition to the 12 titles on the original album, this CD includes 13 hand-picked bonus tracks from the same timeframe, including three recorded in Hollywood with arranger Jack Nitzsche, and four others which first surfaced from the Mercury tape vaults in 1994. The booklet features an essay by noted girl pop authority Sheila Burgel, based on a new interview with Lesley Gore conducted exclusively for this project.

This album has many gems. Perhaps the best song on this album is "You've Come Back", an almost flawless rendition of love with Lesley, a teenage girl, singing with such strength and passion that she outdid women three times her age. Van McCoy wrote this beautiful ballad, and it was released as the B-side of "Sunshine, Lollipops, and Rainbows" in the summer of 1965.
"Girl Talk" includes snappy pop songs like "Say Goodbye" and "Live and Learn", and a Gore penned song "I Died Inside". "Movin' Away" was also a gem of a song on this important album.
Girl Talk did not chart as well as it should have, due to the fact that the album title was not one of her hits and the public wanted to hear Lesley Gore hits. It also emphasized a failed single, "Hey Now" an uncommercial song that should never have been released as a single. Despite these problems, GIRL TALK is an incredibly rich album filled with classic pop songs, many of them written by the songwriting giants of the time.
Gore's delivery is always superb, and she handles each of the songs with incredible precision and depth of feeling. Lesley Gore's voice has never been equalled in the realm of pop music. Her voice is instantly recognizable and is always on tune, clear, and powerful. Her first hits established her as a "submissive girl" but if you listen to Gore's delivery, you hear her powerful and strong voice coming out of each groove.
GIRL TALK is one of the best albums of the 1960s and deserves to be in your collection.
