The Ronettes: The Ronettes Featuring Veronica (180g Vinyl)

Video von The Ronettes - The Ronettes Featuring Veronica (180g Vinyl)

1-LP 180gram 12inch vinyl LP, 11 tracks.

• The Ronettes were one of the first successful American girl groups. 
• Led by singer Veronica Bennett they released a string of hit records produced by Phil Spector. 
• These Colpix and May masters were recorded and issued prior to Spector signing the girls. 
• The original album came out in 1965 after the major breakthrough success of The Ronettes. 
• Contains I Want a Boy and I'm Gonna Quit While I'm Ahead and other favorites. 
• Re-mastered for best listening pleasure; reproduction of original European frontcover.

The Ronettes grew up in New York City’s ‘Spanish Harlem.’ The girl group was built around lovely lead singer Veronica Bennett (later Ronnie Spector) and was rounded out by her older sister Estelle and their cousin Nedra Talley. Most of the recordings on this long-player were first issued at the start of their career in 1961-63 as singles on the Colpix and May labels, produced by the legendary Stu Phillips.

When their first two singles came out, The Ronettes still were named Ronnie and The Relatives. They had made their breakthrough during a Joey Dee & The Starliters show at the Peppermint Lounge in Manhattan singing Ray Charles’ What’d I Say. They stayed at the Peppermint Lounge for weeks, changing their name to The Ronettes early on. The girls created their iconic look by wearing exaggerated eye makeup and teasing their hair to unbelievable proportions. 'We'd look pretty wild by the time we got out onstage,' Ronnie later recalled.

The Colpix and May singles failed to hit, so their contract ended in 1963. Producer Phil Spector was very interested in signing The Ronettes. He placed them in front of his legendary ‘Wall of Sound’ and the hits came in abundance, beginning with the vocal trio’s immortal Be My Baby. Colpix still had The Ronettes’ early recordings in its possession, and ‘The Ronettes Featuring Veronica,’ an album made up of those tracks, was issued in 1965 in the US, Holland and Great Britain, shortly after Spector released the group’s only studio album on his Philles label.

Artist description "Ronettes"

The Ronettes

Be My Baby

Phil Spector found his muse in Ronnie Bennett. Born August 10, 1943 in New York City, Veronica (her birth name), her sister Estelle (born July 22, 1941), and their cousin Nedra Talley (born January 27, 1946) were mixed race products of Spanish Harlem in New York. Ronnie loved Frankie Lymon and The Teenagers. The girls and their relatives were tutored on harmonizing by Ronnie's grandmother.

 

"It started out with six of us," says Nedra. "Five girls and one younger boy cousin. At 10 years old, I was doing my first talent show at the Apollo with all of us. So it just sort of dwindled down to just being three." When they signed with Colpix in 1961, the trio was billed as Ronnie & The Relatives. That name lasted as long as their debut single. "My mom and my uncle Ray and them came up with the combination of all of our names. So they had 'Ro'--Ronnie, 'Ne'–-Nedra, 'Es'–-Estelle," says Nedra. "That's how the name The Ronettes came up."

Their ravishing look, incorporating heavy eye makeup, mountainous hairdos, and knockout physiques, got the underage Ronettes into the Peppermint Lounge in 1961. Their dance moves rather than their voices earned them gigs on deejay Murray The K's gala concerts (they had yet to land a hit). "Murray was like, 'Oh, well, you're my dancing girls!'" says Nedra. Under producer Stu Phillips at Colpix and its May logo, The Ronettes made more solid girl group 45s. Then Spector entered. "He came to the Brooklyn Fox and saw our performance, and came backstage," Nedra says. "We met him, and then from that, that's when it really did happen."

Though he made his earliest hits on The Crystals in New York for his Philles label, Spector built his Wall of Sound at Gold Star Studios in Hollywood. He brought Ronnie out to L.A. to cut Be My Baby, a collaboration between Spector and the prolific New York team of Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich, on July 29, 1963. "Jeff and I, when we were married, we used to talk to each other like baby talk," said the late Greenwich. "Really, one time we were talking, 'Oh, come on, won't you be my baby?' Hmm-mm,'Be My Baby!' That sounds kind of sweet!' I mean, it's not a very original title, but it's said an awful lot to people."

Hal Blaine's drums sounded like bazooka fire on Be My Baby's intro, his fills resembling overhead thunder on the vamp out (Wall of Sound stalwart Jack Nitzsche did the arrangement). Ronnie wailed like her life depended on it, and the backing choir included Darlene Love, Nino Tempo, Sonny Bono, and Cher. Be My Baby was a #2 pop/#4 R&B smash that fall. "I think the Ronettes really did have a spectacular sound, and a very original sound. That's what a girl group should sound like, to me," said Ellie. "Ronnie did happen to have an incredible libretto."

Just before year's end, The Ronettes crashed the pop charts with their next hit, the pulverizing Baby, I Love You, another Spector/Barry/Greenwich masterwork. "They needed a followup to 'Be My Baby,' and back then you kind of wanted to duplicate the feel and the sound of the hit record, so we sat down specifically and wrote that song for them," said Greenwich.The Ronettes also co-starred on Spector's legendary Christmas LP. 1964 brought more hits: (The Best Part Of) Breakin' Up, Do I Love You? and their deeply moving Walking In The Rain.

1965 saw The Ronettes begin to slide. By '67 Estelle and Nedra had settled down to raise families. Phil and Ronnie's hellish marriage has been extensively chronicled elsewhere; she survived and continues to sing powerfully. Nedra married New York deejay Scott Ross and became a Christian Broadcasting Network personality. Colon cancer killed Estelle in February of 2009. The less said about Spector's current whereabouts or the murderous circumstances surrounding them, the better.

Stirling Job

Audiophil Vinyl, Oct. 16 "Underneath the source mastering, though, Bear Family has done a stirling job by placing the
mastering on the best available sonic platform, so you don’t lose
any frequency that might be in the offing."
