The Angels were an American girl group, best-known for their 1963 hit "My Boyfriend's Back". Barbara and Phyllis Allbut and Linda Jansen (soon replaced with Peggy Santiglia ) had their first hit was in 1961, with "Till", followed by a lesser success called "Cry Baby Cry".
In 1963, the trio began working with the Feldman-Goldstein-Gottehrer songwriting team, who wrote "My Boyfriend's Back". The Angels' performance was meant as a demo for The Shirelles to considered recording, but the music publishers chose instead to release it as it stood. The song was a major hit, but no follow-up of comparable success was released. A few minor hits followed and the trio began working as a session musician.
