Caveat Lector: I’ve been on another vintage girl-group kick of late and will be featuring some lesser known faves over the next few days beginning with Reparata & The DelronsBoys And Girls.” Clocking in at an all too brief one minute and forty-six seconds, it’s propulsive drums and percussive piano that drive the track. Pair the two with syncopated handclaps, attitude and elevated vocal harmonics and the song finds itself residing in that oft elusive, intangible, sweet spot.

Formed in 1962 at St. Brendan’s Catholic School in Brooklyn, NY, one cannot help but imagine the group one day joining the ranks of the Martin Scorsese soundtrack canon. The filmmaker, known to have a penchant for girl-groups, has famously featured the Ronettes, the Crystals, the Marvelettes, and the Shirelles in his films.
