Album Review

Although she generally gets stylistically thrown in with the girl groups of her 1960s era, Lesley Gore, in the best of her sides like "It's My Party," "Judy's Turn to Cry," "She's a Fool," "You Don't Own Me," "That's the Way Boys Are," and "Maybe I Know," managed to prefigure the “I’m me whether you like it or not” Girl Power acts that emerged two decades later in the '80s. It didn’t hurt that she was produced by Quincy Jones, either, who cleverly double-tracked her vocals and got the maximum out of both singer and song.

She wasn't the most soulful...
