Think about it for a minute - would you want to bootleg something that Allen Klein owns???? I don't think so. There was a record collector in the early 60's who decided he wanted to boot a few records that Morris Levy owned. He did, and for the rest of his life, his nickname was "Wire Jaw" (true story!). Nothing that is or was out there is legit - he has the tapes, and he's not touching 'em. And you can't buy the hit version of The Twist anywhere.

I'm very interested in talking with fellow girl group fanatics. I'm creating a website devoted to them and I'd love for some input. Anyone with any knowledge of Red Bird, Motown, Laurie, Philles, Cameo-Parkway, etc and their girl group rosters, please write me. Also, I don't know how many people have had a chance to hear Here Come The Girls Vol.8. It is an incredible release with some great songs that should have been hits. The Lovenotes' version of "You, Baby" by the Ronettes, among others, is absolutely stunning, and I'm dying to find out who the deep-voice lead singer is. Hope to hear from you.

However, word had it that since it was a civil and not a criminal trial, he had been waiting in a hotel here in NY. His lawyer, Andrew Bart, was present and he seemed very curt and to the point..he had to be asked several times to bring down his voice...we all saw a small guy that resembled Phil but he really was a paralegal who said to us"I never heard of this Phil but I know the songs"..Estelle had a few extra pounds and looked great and young...she recognized me from the past and said " Hi, how are You?" She had teenage girl with her who resembled her... the press were unbelievable and intrusive..that scared the Ronettes but Ronnie savored the moment to kid with them..indeed, I was HAPPY!

Claiming Spector cheated them out of royalties, Ronnie Estelle and Nedra are suing Phil to the tune of $11 mil for breach of contract, lost and future earnings and ownership (??) of original recordings. Spector testified Thursday that the Ronettes owe him a considerable sum. Taking the stand as a hostile witness, Spector said the cost of recording the 28 songs made by the Ronettes far exceeded his income and that the group actually owes him money (!!).
