It's a Happening Texas Girls of the 60s / Various
The best known girl group in Texas during the late 60's was the Heart Beats of Lubbock. All seven recordings by the Heart Beats are included on this album, along with other great female led bands from 1966, such as the WordD from Dallas and the Bombshells of Houston. An added bonus is folk singer, Linda Pierre King from Houston, whose self-penned originals from 1966 foreshadowed subsequent folk singers such as Janis Ian and Melanie. The fact that only five of the twenty-five songs on this album were ever released during the 60's, testifies to the enduring fascination with unearthing undiscovered gems by the girls of Texas.

The Heart Beats - Poor Side of Town, Choo Choo Train, Crying Inside, Satisfied, Everywhere, Little Latin Lupe Lu. The Bombshells - Treat Him Right. Linda Pierre King - Hard Lovin' Babe, Who Cares?, Blackness, Where Are We Going?, Bali Hai, Tiny Sparrow, Jack-A-Roe, the Train, Scotch And Soda, Don't Think Twice (It's Alright), Blowin' in the Wind, My Boot Heels Are Travelin'.
