Listen to the Story.

England had Dusty Springfield.

The US had Nancy Sinatra.

And Spain was no exception. It had Marisel.

But Marisel was just one of the many artists featured in a new CD called "Chicas: Spanish Female Singers 1962 to 1974."

Most of the tunes on the CD were released as original singles, composed by Spanish song writers.

They had been influenced by British rock, American soul and dance crazes like twist.

Anchor Marco Werman tells us about a new CD collection that gathers the best in Spanish girl pop from the 1960s and early 70s.
