The Angelettes

Spectropop presents The Angelettes: "The Angelettes were a young British quartet from the Manchester area. Although they played their own instruments, they were too smooth, melodic and professional to be regarded as a garage band. Their beautiful harmonies were the most characteristic feature of their music. These are well displayed in most of their records, notably their first: "Don't Let Him Touch You", which should have been a big hit. But for the fault on their Top Of The Pops TV outing, maybe it would have been. This song, like much of their output, was written and produced by Jonathan King, the multi-talented extrovert who was behind so many British hits of the late '60s and the '70s. Later, they worked with Bryan Ferry, doing the vocal backings on his "These Foolish Things" LP. This is Spectropop's tribute to this talented early 1970s group. We are very grateful to original member Julie Hammersley (née Abbott) for most of the material in the article. (Ian Slater)"
