¡Me gusta CHICAS!

Vampi Soul has done it yet again. They just released a beautiful double LP compilation titled ¡Chicas! Spanish Female Singers 1962-1974. I spotted this thing a mile away at Amoeba Records this weekend. The cover is KILLER, it's a gatefold cover with really nice printed inner sleeves. They really went all out to make this release top notch. Their website describes this album as "an irresistible collection of ye-yé, rock & roll, twist, beat, garage, rhythm & blues, soul and Latin sounds!" and most of the tracks on this comp have been reissued legally for the first time. ¡Chicas! is available on CD as well, but you gotta buy the vinyl. Actually, I will not allow you to buy the CD. You're only allowed to buy it on vinyl. Ok? Ok. Buy it here.

Here are some songs available on the comp... you're gonna love the top video, too adorbs!! :-)


  1. Excellent! Thanks for doing the YouTube donkey work :) You're right about that sleeve art, too - amazing!

    cheers, brogues

  2. I got my copy of the vinyl this week, its really great. Thanks for recommending it (and thanks generally for this fantastic blog)!
