#MusicMonday THE GIRLS (Capitol Records) 1960s


If you've ever gone looking for things from the past on the internet, but couldn't find them, look again!

About a year ago I did a search on Google based on an old poster of an all-girl rock group I remember seeing hanging in Albany's Blue Note Record Shop years ago. They were being marketed as a female alternative to the Beatles. Couldn't find a thing! Even looked through what appeared to be an online database of Capitol Records 45rpm single releases dating back to the 1950s... again, nothing.

Schlepped down to the Blue Note and had a nice chat with the owner... but... dead end again!

But leave it to the power and magic of the information sensation (the internet) and voila! THE GIRLS were NOT a figment of my imagination! (I knew that if the Mascots eventually showed up on the Net, The Girls would too!)

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
