RIYL: The Go-Go's, The Pandoras, The Bangles, late 70's/early 80's new wave

Label: Bomp

The B-Girls were a late 70’s all-girl new wave band out of Canada that never quite gained the popularity of similar bands like Southern California’s Go-Go’s, The Bangles, or numerous others. After releasing one 7” in 1979, plans for a full length album never materialized and the band was pretty much forgotten. The band’s collected recordings were released as a CD in 1997, but this is the first time their music has been released as a full-length vinyl LP.

There’s also a standard pink version with a larger pressing but if you want that limited pink starburst version I’d go ahead and click that Buy Now link.
