The Ronettes: The Colpix Years 1961 - 1963 (LP, 180g Vinyl)

(Cornbread) 12 tracks - Album comes with download code

Nedra, Estelle and the voice of Veronica. Beehives, Phil Spector anti "Be My Baby". Mascara vibrato and 'Baby I Love You'. Slit sarongs, castanets and 'Walking In The Rain'. Takes you back? Well, let's go way back. Before the Wall of Sound, to Spanish Harlem in the mid-fifties.
Thirteen-year-old Veronica 'Ronnie' Spector, big sister Estelle and younger cousin Nedra Talley are gathered around their grandmother's radio. They are listening intently to 'Why Do Fools Fall In Love'. With their other cousins they spent many a happy afternoon at the apartment rehearsing songs together and singing along with the latest doo-wop records. Ronnie loved Frankie Lymon's voice and modelled her own singing style on his.
Ronnie, Estelle and Nedra were from a very large musically appreciative family. All their aunts and uncles loved to sing and dance. So it was agreed that the three girls should take singing lessons. They soon found themselves an agent and before long some professional work. Known briefly as the Darling Sisters and wearing frilled party dresses they trilled 'Goodnight Sweetheart' and other hit songs of the day in three part harmony to bar mitzvah audiences. It was hardly the big time, but it was a start.

By 1961, having adopted the moniker Ronnie and the Relatives, the group had become a little restless playing hops and bar mitzvahs. Once again their agent Phil Halikus came to the rescue. He'd arranged for them to audition for Stu Phillips at Colpix Records. With that audition passed, and their first recording session completed, July 1961 saw the release of their first single. It coupled 'What's so Sweet About Sweet Sixteen' with 'I Want A Boy' and sold very poorly. As did the second Ronnie and the Relatives 45 'I'm Gonna Quit While I'm Ahead' b/w 'My Guiding Angel' released on Colpix's May subsidiary at the beginning of 1962. Two singles bearing the group name were released in 1962. 'Silhouettes' (an old song the Ronettes loved) coupled with 'You Bet I Would' (co-written by the upcoming Carole King) hit the new release racks for May in April. 'I'm On The Wagon' b/w 'I'm Gonna Quit While I'm Ahead' foillowed two months later on the parent Colpix label. Aside from their duties recording for Colpix and twisting around the clock at the Peppermint Loung, Ronnie, Estelle and Nedra kept themselves busy as session singers and dancing girls. They sang back-ups for Del Shannon, Conway Twitty and, amongst others, Joey Dee. And, in all probability, it was the Ronettes who recorded four tracks in the guise of the Heartbreakers with R 'n' B producer Bert Berns in April 1962.

 After two hard years in the business, in early 1963 the girls had the extreme good fortune to meet top record producer Phil Spector. He agreed to meet them at Mira Sound studios in New York and had them sing it bunch of Frankie Lymon and Little Anthony songs. Immediately hooked on Ronnie's delicious looks and voice, and keen for a new act for his Philles label roster Spector was eager to sign the group. Problem was that the Ronettes were still signed to Colpix. So, Beatrice Bennett, mother of Estelle and Ronnie, approached Colpix and told them that the group were disenchanted with the music business and wanted to quit. Thus extricated from their contract, the Ronettes were free to sign with Philles Records. Colpix Records utilised the remaining Roulettes recordings they held in the can. In March 1963 the May label put 'The Memory' and 'Good Girls' together on a single, and two years later the Colpix-conned Dimension logo scheduled 'He Did It' b/w 'Recipe For Love' as a new release. Soon after signing the Ronettes to his Philles label in March 1963 Phil Spector had Ronnie ensconced in a dimly lit Hollywood recording studio singing over an old Darlene Love backing track. The group spent the next few months rehearsing at an apartment on loan from Arnold Goland, while Spector collaborated with Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich on what was to become a worldwide smash - 'Be My Baby'.

This Cornbread vinyl is of considerable archival importance. It contains all 11 tracks the Ronettes recorded for the Colpix label, but also a rare chance to hear Ronnie, Estelle and Nedra providing their distinctive vocal support on Joey Dee's 'Getting Nearer'. from 1963. So settle back and enjoy the original voices of the beehive.

The Ronettes

Be My Baby

Die Ronettes wuchsen im New Yorker Stadtteil ‚Spanish Harlem’ auf. Im Mittelpunkt der Girl Group stand Leadsängerin Veronica Bennett (später bekannt als Ronnie Spector), die von ihrer älteren Schwester Estelle und ihrer Cousine Nedra Talley unterstützt wurde. Die meisten der Aufnahmen dieser LP wurden zu Beginn der Karriere zwischen 1961 und 1963  auf Singles für Labels wie Colpix und May veröffentlicht und wurden von dem bekannten Stu Phillips produziert. Als die ersten beiden Singles erschienen, nannten sich die Ronettes noch Ronnie and The Relatives. Im Rahmen einer Show für Joey Dee & The Starliters in der Peppermint Lounge in Manhattan gelang ihnen mit What’d I Say von Ray Charles der Durchbruch.

Wochenlang traten sie daraufhin in der Peppermint Lounge auf und änderten schon bald ihren Namen in The Ronettes. Die Girls kreierten ihren kultigen Look mit übertriebenem Augen-Makeup und unglaublich hoch getürmten Haargebilden. „Wenn wir die Bühne betraten, sahen wir ziemlich wild aus,“ erinnerte sich Ronnie später. Die Singles für Colpix und May wurden keine Hits. Deshalb endete 1963 der Vertrag. Der Produzent Phil Spector war sehr daran interessiert, die Ronettes unter Vertrag zu nehmen. Er stellte sie vor seine legendäre ‚Wall of Sound’, und nun kamen die Hits im Übermaß, allen voran das unsterbliche Be My Baby. Colpix besaß noch immer die frühen Aufnahmen. ‘The Ronettes Featuring Veronica’, eine Album-Zusammenstellung aus diesen Aufnahmen, wurde 1965 in den Vereinigten Staaten, den Niederlande und Großbritannien veröffentlicht, kurz nachdem Phil Spector das einzige Studioalbum der Ronettes auf seinem Philles-Label herausgebracht hatte.

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.
