MYSTERY GIRLS - These Boots Are Made For Walkin' 7'' 1983

A classic one with this all-female band, the Mystery Girls from the States with their debut 7inch on Casino Records. Side A offers a nice cover version of Lee Hazelwood's classic while the flip 'Ego' is a catchy powerpop cracker and for me the winner. A short review brings it to the point: "A weird mixture here. The geetars on the old Nancy Sinatra hit are restrained and tasteful, but on "Ego", the Mystery Girls really cut loose with dirty rock 'n' roll riffing à la Johnny Thunders. Cool as hell. - Jeff Bale (from Maximum RockNRoll #6, May/June 1983) - Wonder why they are not on any compilations or am I missing something there? Anyway, maybe someone change this sometime.
