Yes, incredibly, that's how we used to refer to women in the sixties; "chicks". Since then, men have been educated to have more respect for the other 50% of humanity. The title of this album is merely meant to evoke a sense of the period, nothing more.
This album has been made for those who want to sit back and remember this golden decade through the medium of the female voice. It has been compiled by one who lived through this decade in the United Kingdom. Listeners who were raised in other parts of the world may be puzzled by some of the selections - but I hope you enjoy them anyway!
In the mainstream music industry, the sixties did not really begin until 1963 in the UK with the explosion of The Beatles. Before this, the early sixties were really just a continuation of the nineteen fifties. This is apparent in the sequence of tracks which is roughly, not exactly, chronological from 1961 to 1969. Female artists generally were not allowed the same artistic freedom and adventurism that was accorded to their male counterparts during this period, but there is an undeniable change in musical style, as well as an improvement in production values and quality, as the decade advances.
Not all of the tracks are by solo performers, there are several groups in there too. There are even some males as part of some of these groups But in these cases the lead vocal is female with the males providing backing vocals.
