In The Beginning
The Angelettes harmonies have been sought after by many artistes, with vocal backing sessions recorded at the major studios in London.
However, in 2000, Julie, together with her daughter Sara and Sue's daughter, Jo, recorded three original songs with some of Nashville USA's most talented session players. The ladies were already gigging together and it had not gone unnoticed that their vocal sound had a striking similarity to that of the Angelettes - not surprising, with both daughters having that uncanny familial connection. It was not totally unexpected when the trio decided to add a few Angelettes' numbers to their repertoire.
UK Records then decided to release the CD "King of Hits Box set". Included in that set was the song "I Cried" recorded by The Angelettes in 1973 but remaining unreleased until then. By 2011, the movie "Me Me Me" - premiering in London and at the Cannes Film Festival - was available online, featuring "I Cried", together with the first Angelettes' single "Don't Let Him Touch You" (both of which are now available on iTunes). The sound of The Angelettes was well and truly back!
The movie generated a huge amount of interest, gathering a young new internet following and with complimentary "Tweets" from such prestigious Twitterers as Stephen Fry and Alex Day. Fans old and were delighted to learn that they are able to access all The Angelettes' songs on You Tube - A and B sides - with "Don't Let Him Touch You" receiving an astounding 95,000 hits in in it's first month online.
