I would like to add "The Dance" to the list. Though the band is not
all female, the lead singer and significant writer of most of the
songs was female. There is a reissue currently in the works. The group
has a very accessible sound, especially on their last effort "Soul
Force". I would call this essential and I feel many of you would also
call it essential had there been a reissue available for some years.

Girl." In fact, can we just put Heavenly on our list? Or is there a chronological cutoff (around 1985, to judge by the list we already have)? If there's a 1985-86 cutoff, Salem 66 and/or Scrawl should just sneak in... do either of them belong?
