Record  Details:

Leader of the Pack is the 1965 debut LP by girl group The Shangri-Las. The album was produced to capitialize on the group's breakthrough hits "Remember (Walking in the Sand)" and "Leader of the Pack" which had been co-written by Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich. The motorcycle sound effect provided by engineer Joe Venneri former original band member of the Tokens. Joe cruised up a flight of stairs on his motorcycle during a live recording adding a classic touch to the hit song.After the album's focal track went to number one, The Shangri Las' style and image had evolved into something tougher and earthier.

Much of the material for Leader of the Pack such as "Bull Dog" and "It's Easier To Cry" emphasized their new style. Other songs on the album include cover versions of " Maybe" originally by The Chantels with Betty Weiss on lead vocals, along with " Shout" by The Isley Brothers and "Twist and Shout" by the Top Notes. Also on the album is "Give Him A Great Big Kiss" which The Shangri-Las would release as a single later in the year. Although the group had scored two major hits, the album only charted at 109 on the U.S. albums chart.

This LP is a  must have for fans of the "girl group sound" and early rock and roll!
