Shangris soundalikes 'Les Chansonettes' on Shrine.

Recommended Posts

This record intrigues me immensely , the lead vocal has most of the nuance found in Mary Weiss voice, same range, same nasal sound, when I first heard this I figured it must be a Shangris I hadn't heard of, I realised that couldn't be possible. Perhaps the girl came from the same area in Queens and had the same accent?

Basically I'd like some info if anyone knows any?

Meantime if you don't know it this is some fantastic sound, enjoy!

According to Kent write up -

"they were a trio of high-school girls from Baltimore who were probably sisters and one was called Dolores"

BJ Douglas captured hearts at a tender age of seven, and led her family to victory during a Lloyd Price Talent Show at the famed Royal Theatre on Pennsylvania Avenue in Baltimore, Maryland. While in her early teens, her Dream Girl experience began when BJ, Norma, Barbara and Heysette formed a singing group called Les Chansonettes to participate in their high school talent show. After winning prizes in this and many other talent competitions, Norma, BJ, Heysette, and Angela recorded a national hit entitled Don't Let Him Hurt You and Deeper with Shrine Recording Company in Washington, DC. She later recorded I Almost Left You with Fran and Marilyn from Washington, D.C.
