A Piece of Cake

This fabulous ’60s New York City girl group Cake, here done up in the Swinging London dolly-rocker Mary Quant style of the time, perform their original number “You Can Have Him” on some midcentury TV variety show or another. We love it, we can’t stop watching it, despite its less-than-remastered quality. They transcend. The girls who were teenagers here are Jeanette Jacobs, Barbara Morillo, and Eleanor Barooshian. And lest you find Jeanette, the Cake slice on the left, somewhat less… there than the others, be it known that the poor girl was epileptic and might have been having a moment. Sadly, she would die at 32. So-o-o much more about this surprisingly amazing group is to be discovered by reading Chris Campion’s nearly booklength liner notes cum biography for the group’s album More of Cake Please, which we came across at Dangerous Minds, natch.
