It's an assemblage of images taken bymy father as he followed me everywhere, where I performed alongside the greatest Soul artists of the '60s, shots of James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Jackie Wilson, a bunch with The Supremes, The Shirelles and other great girl groups on the '64 Dick Clark tour!"

Pres Release: Pop Sixties: Shindig!, Dick Clark, Beach Party and Photographs from the Donna Loren Archive is the photographic retrospective of a 1960s "It Girl." Featuring narrative by Loren herself and the help of longtime Los Angeles archivist Domenic Priore, Donna Loren looks at her work on television's Shindig! and Dick Clark's Caravan of Stars tour (including images of The Supremes, James Brown, Jerry Lee Lewis, and many more), plus behind-the-scenes on the sets of Batman, The Monkees, and all the American International beach movies. At a time when The Beach Boys and Beach Blanket Bingo were on top, Donna Loren was the iconic California Girl.
