The Paris Sisters Sing Everything Under the Sun
- Released: September 17, 2013
- Label: WEA Japan
The Paris Sisters' last official album, originally released on Reprise in 1966, was their crowning achievement. Alas, it was also ignored completely by the record-buying public, despite the fact that each of its ten songs was crafted as a potential single with mass appeal specifically in mind and the overall album was intended to showcase the trio's entire stylistic range and history, from their origins as a three-part harmony group influenced by the McGuire Sisters ("Sincerely") and the Chordettes ("Born to Be With You") to their period recording for Phil Spector ("See That Boy") and also encompassing Priscilla Paris's prodigious songwriting, represented here by two songs, "You" and "I'm Me," that should have been major hits. Even their rendition of "It's My Party" puts a fresh spin on the song, done as a slow, hauntingly ethereal ballad rather than a teen lament. The sound is excellent and the songs are so beautiful that one can overlook the 26-minute running time, and the thorough annotation by Greg Adams is worth the full price being asked for the disc. ~ Bruce Eder
