HE'S SO FINE * THE CHIFFONS * STATESIDE 172 * UK
This Chiffons cut, their first recording, has reversed the backing vocals found in DooWop and brought them forward then the song is built around them, which, in essence, simultaneously gives continuity and a break with the past. This simple but effective art would have at the time given the record a subtle quality of familiarity and newness that though palpable to the senses would have been hard to define.
