Britain's Helen Shapiro recorded the album "Helen In Nashville" in 1963 and it's there you'll find the original recording of "It's My Party" (John Gluck Jr. - Walter Gold - Herb Weiner). When the Beatles toured Britain for the first time, they were Helen's opening act.

Quincy Jones produced the Lesley Gore (Goldstein) 1963 chart topper. You can find the hit on her album "I'll Cry If I Want To". Lesley and brother Michael had an Academy Award nomination for "Out Here On My Own" from the 1980 soundtrack of "Fame".
