Boys by Shirelles

Label: Scepter 1211
Year: 1960
Condition: M-
Price: $40.00

Besides the essential A side, the flip is the terrific original version of a song later covered by the Beatles. Personally, I think it's one of the best Shirelles sides ever, so I've made an mp3 "snippet" so I can hear it as often as I like! It's a perfect encapsulation of that pubescent anticipation of what being intimate with the opposite sex will be like... in this case, imagining sensual thrills previously unimaginable. No wonder John Lennon & his comrades felt they had to weigh in with their own reading of "Boys." :-) Note: This beautiful copy grades Near Mint across the board (Labels, Vinyl, Audio), reflecting a faint touch of ringwear on the labels (see scan), some light vinyl storage wear, and audio in which the very light native vinyl surface noise is occasionally audible, mostly at the beginning and ending. Have a listen to the mp3 snippet to hear what I mean by Near Mint in this case.
