Full details

Following the phenomenal success of Girls Gone Rockin’, Fantastic Voyage is proud to present a sister volume of distaff delights drawn from across the Rock’n’Roll spectrum. Like its predecessor, Let’s Have A Party offers a toe-tappin’ selection of hits and rarities that will please both avid collectors and those just beginning to explore the genre.

From the sock-hoppin’ ‘Petticoat Baby’ to the risqué ‘Drill, Daddy, Drill’, it’s time to leave the ‘Dirty Dishes’ and get this party started! Bringing together some of Rock’n’Roll’s finest singers, this 75-track set sees chart-topping R&B mamas rub shoulders with boogie woogie Country gals, and demure Pop princesses mingle with Rockabilly fillies, whose lesser-heard down-home ditties have nonetheless earned them a place in collectors’ hearts. From sassy city slickers such as LaVern Baker and Ruth Brown, to Southern songbirds like The Davis Sisters and Wanda Jackson, this is as diverse a set of female rockers as one could hope to find.
