...Presenting The Fabulous Ronettes Featuring Veronica
by The Ronettes
Released: Nov 1964
Label: Legacy Recordings
The Ronettes' debut is mega-classic -- one of the very best albums of the 1960s. The group had previously released a handful of unsuccessful singles, but it wasn't until they teamed up with "wall of sound" guru Phil Spector that their sound clicked. On landmark recordings "Be My Baby," "Baby, I Love" and "Walking In The Rain" a silky desperation oozes from Ronnie Spector's voice as she attempts to soar above the thrillingly bombastic arrangements. Though a deep cut, "So Young" just might be the most dramatic of the lot, an operatic mediation on youth that's utterly abstract in its minimalism.
