Unknown Classic: Ginny Arnell--"I Wish I Knew What Dress To Wear" (1964)

Ginny Arnell. had sung duets with Gene Pitney in the late 50's/early 60's with some success and began a solo career a few years later. She had one hit in 1963 with, "Dumb Head" and was poised as a bright light in the girl group sub-genre. However her best work came in 64-66 which coincided with the British Invasion. None of her singles even cracked the top 100, including the song your going to hear. "I Wish I Knew What Dress To Wear" is one of the best examples (and what i consider a classic) of the girl group era. Hope you like it as well....
