Is this just speeded up, or is this a cover version. Does anyone know if there was a cover version of this song? Also, I just love thge Goodnight Kisses' "If He Kissed Me" which is inspired I believe by the Crystals' Then He Kissed Me. Did they record anything else? Same goes for the Girlfriends' whose "My One And Only Jimmy Boy b/w For My Sake" is great. I heard they made a second single. Who has it? Finally, I hate to bring this up in this group, and I'm not a big Spice Girls fan myself, but have any of you heard their song "Viva Forever?" It sounds very girl group inspired, and I could swear it is very similar to those great Russ Titleman songs of the early to mid-sixties. --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: The Ronettes.... Sent: 07/30/98 8:54 am Received: 07/30/98 11:15 pm From: R Teyes, RTeXXXX@XXXom To: Spectropop List, spectroXXXX@XXXties.com If you have AOL, look under netfind and dozens of Ronettes stuff will appear...you can also look under Ronnie Spector, Phil Spector, etc. I just found an old 60's Walker Bros LP, their very first, "Introducing the Walker Bros" on the Smash label... Ronnie completed recording with the new company....she's set to tour the Eastern Seaboard after the trial... I have also just acquired Darlene Love's "Christmas" on Philles Promo 45 which by itself is a rarity as per the current literature on rare 45s...you have to stop at EVERY thrift shop and browse the 45s...I have found rare Philles stuff along my travels..also, if you tell your friends about your record collection, most often they will be happy to "find" stuff for you.. My good friend Paul bought for me for $2 "River Deep..." by Ike and Tina in mint condition...at a thrift store! The Canadian A&M Ike and Tina Phil Spector LP goes for $ 75 and I found it for $15! You gotta shop around!! My pal Jon Raush asked me what I would do once my collection is complete (Phil Spector Collection) and I responded I would make a presentation for Phil fans...

If you haven't bought this comp, which features the >Jerry Ross girl groups, it is a must. Will, you've piqued my interest. I have most of the HCTG series, but not #9 yet. Must get. This is a strange song. Jeff and Ellie found an outlet for their talents through Red Bird, so it is fairly easy to see how Dixie Cups covered the odd Ronettes track (Chapel of Love, Gee the Moon, etc.). But this Mann/Weil/Spector Ronettes LP track seems to have received more covers than one would expect. I am thinking of the Lovin' Spoonful version off their "Magic" album. I love Spoonful's Rain on the Roof, Darling Be Home Soon, Didn't Want To Have To Do It and like that, but jeez, their version of You Baby is laughable. Two or three embarrassing tambourine mistakes, and a pale attempt at simulating Gold Star's echo but without any of the power pumping through. Why did they cover THIS? Sebastian was already writing brilliant stuff when their first Kama Sutra album came out. Totally unrelated, I really enjoy the Turtles song of the same name... "yooo - you baby, nobody but you."
