Mercy! What a song! This hit big for The Ronettes in 1963 & was produced by famed producer Phil Spector and utilized his 'Wall of Sound" techniques. I've heard that Spector used 2 or 3 drum sets to achieve the thundering beats. The echo-effects were just right. I've heard some stereo versions of this song by The Ronettes and it is jaw-dropping to hear "The Wall of Sound" in stereo. The original was monaural sound because in '63 stereo systems, especially in vehicles hadn't yet come into popular production. The lyrics were by Jeff Barry, Ellie Greenwich, & Phil Spector telling a story of young love and attraction. It certainly clicked with the teens of the Sixties. The Ronettes were sisters Veronica (Ronnie) and Estelle Bennett with cousin Nedra Talley. This song has been covered by many artists and bands using a variety of arrangements. The song was included on a recently remastered compilation of Ronettes hits by the famous Legacy Project as "The Very Best of The Ronettes" with all original recordings. The enclosed booklet is a valuable resource for rock historians on The Ronettes and Phil Spector. A few years ago, The Ronettes were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Unfortunately, Estelle Bennett passed away a few years ago, but Nedra and Ronnie are still with us. Rock on, Ronettes!
