    Biography :


    Their debut 45 was surely bespoke in heaven for girl group connoisseurs, pairing, as it did, rare and fabulous compositions by those beloved and legendary husband and wife songwriting teams Ellie Greenwich & Jeff Barry and Carole King & Gerry Goffin.

       
    "That Boy Is Messing Up My Mind" was previously a standout number on the album by Greenwich-led group the Raindrops, while THE ORCHIDS' version of "The Harlem Tango" is the only known recording of the song, guaranteeing the disc a very high collectability status.


    Session Guests : Terry Melcher (r.) and Bobby Darin sit during first Columbia session for the Orchids.

    Before moving to the Roulette label in 1965 for a final release cut with producer Teddy Randazzo, the young quintet delivered two further singles on Columbia, including the rare delight of a girl group Christmas record.
