Title supplied by cataloger. Influenced by L.A. 60s legends The Byrds and The Buffalo Springfield, The Bangles set themselves apart from other all-female bands of the era. Their blend of sixties-influenced folk rock and melodic vocal harmonies gained them major commercial and critical success with the songs, "Walk Like An Egyptian" and "Manic Monday." First photograph caption dated October 2, 1984 reads, "Two members of the Bangles (showing a crop of the image with only Susanna Hoffs and Debbi Peterson), a local, all-female quartet that is reason No. 5 on our musical list."; Second photograph caption dated May 19, 1986 reads, "The Bangles (seen here performing in 1984 at the Palace) played to a full house Saturday night at the Greek Theatre--and the crowd, as they say, went wild."
