Late '62/early '63 (still a matter of debate) saw the release on Laurie Records of one of the all time classics, He's So Fine. Apparently the song was offered to 14 record labels before Laurie Records agreed to release the disc and the rest, as they say, is history. George Harrison was such a fan of the song that he ripped it off hook line and sinker for his own hit My Sweet Lord. The Chiffons were the archetypal girl group with a classic sound and an almost uninterrupted sequence of hits throughout the 60's and as a nice counter punch to the ex Beatle they briefly reformed in the mid 70's to cover My Sweet Lord.
