Limited 180gm mandarin-colored vinyl LP pressing in heavy-duty sleeve, with a swanky inner bag sporting a fact-filled 3500-word note and many rare photos. A deluxe vinyl-only collection of guitar-toting all-girl bands, drop-dead female frat rock and axe-centric she-pop. The eye-grabbing front cover features a great shot of Girls Take Over (sisters Cindy, Rinie and Wendy Wilhelmi and their pal Geri Gibson), who open the show with their fabulously raw and pounding version of 'Hi Heel Sneekers', recorded in ''some guy's attic'' in Milwaukee circa 1969. Other highlights include the jangly 'He's Not There Anymore' by the teenage Chymes from the suburbs of Los Angeles, 'Little Latin Lupe Lu' by genre favorites the Debutantes of Detroit, and Karen Verros' much-prized freakbeat bauble 'You Just Gotta Know My Mind'.
