The Persians — Get a Hold of Yourself (1963)
Here’s a single from The Persians, a girl group that, judging by this lone 7”, made one tiny blip on the hit radar and then faded away. The songwriters were Bill Giant, Bernie Baum and Florence Kaye—the same team behind Elvis’ ‘Devil in Disguise,’ also in 1963. If you’re a fan of Phil Spector and The Crystals I think you’re gonna like the way this single channels the Wall of Sound, with clattering percussion and keys.
Here’s The Persians in the ‘Singles Spotlight’ of Billboard’s March 16, 1963 issue.
