The fab McKinleys, sisters Sheila and Jeanette, from Edinburgh, appear here on RSG!, with their terrific '64 version of "Sweet & Tender Romance," produced by Carter & Lewis, who'd previously recorded their own version. Sheila is on the left, Jeanette on the right. Sheila recalls the show's attempt at that 'split-screen' effect: "We were on either side of the studio and couldn't see each other - hysterical!" The girls issued four great 45s spanning '64 and '65, the first of which is held in high esteem by fans of the girl-group sound: the classic "Someone Cares For Me". Later in the 60s, they moved to Germany and had more releases as the McKinlay Sisters, sung in German. Sheila also had several solo German 45s. She eventually became a long-standing member of the Les Humphries Singers, whilst Jeanette became half of the duo Windows, who had a No. 1 hit in Germany with "How Do You Do". Sheila is married to Liverpool legend Howie Casey.

(As an unhappy postscript to the above, Sheila sadly passed away in December 2012. R.I.P.)
