100 MPH girl group sounds

Apologies if there's been another thread like this but I couldn't find one. Just putting together a memory stick for the car and wanted to get a set of 100mph girl group sounds. Surprisingly I can't put my hands on that many, any recommendations? This was the kind of thing I was thinking of but the faster the better, there a few classics but there must be 100's; any CD recommendations too:

The others I had were the Shalimars, The Charmaines, Shirley and The Shirelles, Marilyn Calloway and The Miller Sisters.

Apollas, Belles, Exciters, Fabulous Jades, Glories, Sequins, Sherries.  Admittedly not all 100mph, but I'd get a sweat on dancing to them.

The Bobbettes did some great uptempo tracks on RCA. Happy Go Lucky Me, I've Got To Face The World and Having Fun are all well produced dance floor winners.

Of all the soul styles girl group soul is probably the genre I know the least about.

 

as a stomper i think loretta williams "baby cakes" takes some beating but its obviously not a group sound.

 

maybe end the mix with the superb deep slowie glories "dont dial my number" from the b side of one of their northern tracks.

WOW! I'd only heard the Ian Levine re-recording, exactly the same tempo but somehow it just doesn't have the same drive? . . What about this one too:

It’s a tried and tested oldie - hammered to death up and down the country in its day - BOTH the Vel Vets AND the Gems

Alice Clark-You Hit Me-Warner Bros might be OK as it’s pretty fast. Richetta Osborn-My Sweet Baby is storming up-tempo. Elsie Strong’s cover of Just Ask Me is really good. Make sure you don’t get caught driving as fast as the sounds you play in the car...

Ideally, but there don't seem to be all that many?! and when is a group a group? Gladys Knight (and the Pips)?
