The Flirtations did have a very Motown girl group sound. It was soul music through and through with the tight vocal harmonies and infectious choruses. One of their earliest singles, featured here "Stronger Than Her Love" is a great piece with a strong lead vocal, and an overall soul vibe. Other songs like "Take Me In Your Arms And Love Me" became cult classics, but it was "Nothing But A Heartache" that vaulted The Flirtations into the tops of the charts.
Sadly, they never did cash in the way that other girl groups of the sixties did. But they are still working it, and in 2007 even recorded new material for a Northern Soul compilation.
