Ultimate Expression of Phil Spector's Girl Group Ideal!
Features Veronica Bennett, Estelle Bennett & Nedra Talley!
Includes Hits, "Chapel of Love", "Be My Baby," "(The Best Part Of) Breaking Up," & More!


In the early 1960s, Phil Spector and his Wall of Sound changed the face of popular music, elevating teenage rock 'n' roll into epic, widescreen drama whose emotional directness and expansive, densely layered sound instantly broadened the potential of the recording medium. In the process, the "Tycoon of Teen," barely out of his teens himself, became the first record producer to be as famous as the performers that he produced. Spector's assault on the charts began in earnest in 1962, when he launched his soon-to-be-legendary Philles label. Applying his visionary studio techniques to redefine the girl-group genre, he created a string of iconic smashes ("little symphonies for the kids," as Spector once called them) that dominated the period's AM airwaves, and which continue to resonate through popular culture half a century later. Spector's pioneering work with the Crystals, the Ronettes and Bob B. Soxx and the Blue Jeans remains the cornerstone of his incredible body of work. Perhaps because he's so widely renowned for his masterful singles, the handful of vintage Spector-produced LPs remain underrated, and original vinyl copies have become rare collectors items. Now, Sundazed Music honors the Spector legacy with these four groundbreaking vinyl landmarks from the vaults of Philles Records-all in glorious mono: Twist Uptown, He's A Rebel, Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah, and Presenting the Fabulous Ronettes Featuring Veronica!!!

Originally released in time for 1964's Christmas season, the Ronettes' one and only Philles LP is considered by many to be the crown jewel of the label's catalogue, representing the ultimate expression of Phil Spector's girl-group ideal.

Fronted by the impossibly charismatic Veronica Bennett, aka Ronnie Spector, the Ronettes combined girlish innocence and playful sexiness in a manner that struck a responsive chord with listeners in the '60s, and continues to do so five decades later. With Phil's surging Wall of Sound arrangements meeting their match in the kittenish vocals of Ronnie and her sister Estelle Bennett and cousin Nedra Talley, it's not hard to understand why the Ronettes effortlessly held their own with the British Invasion acts that otherwise dominated the pop scene in 1964.

Although the Ronettes are principally known as a singles act, Presenting the Fabulous Ronettes featuring Veronica is a remarkably consistent and cohesive set that collects all of the trio's early hits, including such enduring pop masterpieces as "Be My Baby," "Baby (I Love You)," "Walking In The Rain," "Do I Love You?," "(The Best Part Of) Breaking Up," "You Baby" and the Ronettes' original version of "Chapel of Love" (which predates the Dixie Cups' hit version). It's hard to imagine a more consistent collection of perfect pop bliss, or a more excellent expression of girl group greatness.

"Just as the first wave of British Invasion bands threatened to overtake Spector at the top of the pop charts, the producer responded with 'Walking in the Rain.' The dreamy ballad features Veronica 'Ronnie' Bennett singing lead. She nailed the vocal on the first take — unheard of in Spector’s world. Bennett and Spector were married two years later." - Rolling Stone
