Here's a shock: The mid-Sixties vixens on the hilarious and delightful retrospective Destroy That Boy! More Girls With Guitars (Ace) were bossed around by guys — Jack Nitzsche, Steve Cropper and Sly Stone among them — who produced these two dozen singles and wrote virtually all of the songs. But control of the mike is nine-tenths of the law on Karen Verros' tough 1965 pearl "You Just Gotta Know My Mind," the Debutantes' sassy '67 gender reversal of "Shake a Tail Feather" and film kitten Ann-Margret's '68 acid-pop swoon in "You Turned My Head Around." The oddest daddy here: Miles Davis collaborator Teo Macero, who produced the What Four's bizarre deadly-Shirelles flop "I'm Gonna Destroy That Boy" in 1966.
