Details: Love this Rhino compilation that was put out in 1984, this is a very good plus/near mint copy of this fantastic LP. It features tracks by Sophisticated Boom Boom, The Pandoras, Chris Somma (performing Kathy Valentine's "Can't Stop The World") who also played "Shawn" in 1976 "Rock 'n' Roll High School" (see video feat. PJ Soles below). 

Description: "This most recent trend of American artists mining the sounds of vintage sixties girl groups (Dum Dum GirlsBest Coast, etc.) inspired me to pull out Rhino Records 1984 new-wave, all female, compilation The Girls Can’t Help It. At thirteen tracks Girls is an inspired time capsule featuring, among others, Leslee SwansonTiger Lilly, On The Air, The Antoinettes, the Pandoras and the Dynette Set. An underground, new-wave, take on Phil Spector production and the Shangri-Las, the long out-of-print compilation is an excellent slice of pure ’60s pastiche. Bittersweet though, as, save for the two tracks below, I’ve since lost my copy. Should anyone have this compilation digitized, or on the original vinyl, please email or leave a comment below." - Aquarium Drunkard
