    Billy - 
    You're the man! I thought I'd get to be the first to mention 
    "Nobody Knows...Mind but Me" but you beat me to it! Wasn't that 
    written by Brute Force (or is that something else I made up) ??
    GREAT song!

    >On a different subject, can anyone tell me what 'Walking through

    Yes, "Walkin' Through A Cemetery" is like "Party Lights," or 
    perhaps more like "Walk Me Home (From the Party)." She does a "
    witch cackle" that is great!

    It does indeed David, and Stu Cook told me that the Zombies were a
    specific influence on that tune, and the Golliwogs in general. The 
    mono Odessey masters did eventually turn up, but not in time to 
    make the box.

    Ronettes, Phil Spector tussle in New York court
    By Jeanne King
    NEW YORK (Reuters) - A New York City courtroom was filled with the
    sounds of 1960s pop hits like "Be My Baby" Tuesday as arguments 
    began in an $11 million lawsuit filed by the Ronettes against 
    their former producer, Phil Spector.
    Members of the classic "girl group," who include the producer's 
    ex-wife Ronnie Spector, claim he cheated them out of their 
    royalties and that they have not received any money from him since
    They are suing for breach of contract, lost and future earnings 
    and ownership of original recordings.
    The Ronettes' attorney, Alexander Peltz, opened his case by 
    playing a number of their hits -- "Be My Baby," "Walking in the 
    Rain," and "Baby I Love You" -- for Manhattan Supreme Court Judge 
    Paula Omansky, who is hearing the case without a jury.
    Ronnie Spector, the trio's lead singer who now performs as a solo 
    act, sat in the back row of the courtroom, singing to herself as 
    the music played. Her marriage to Spector ended in divorce in 1974.
    Phil Spector was one of the 1960s' most influential and successful
    producers. His creative trademark of overdubbing dozens of 
    musicians on a single record became known as the "Wall of Sound" 
    Peltz said the group had a contract with Spector dating from 1963,
    but that all efforts to recoup their earnings had proved fruitless.
    He said Spector's response was that the group owed him money for 
    production costs.
    "Phil Spector was a boy genius in music, producing, assembling, 
    marketing girl groups -- but he was also a genius in greed, 
    vengeance and spite," Peltz said.
    The Ronettes, known for their beehive hairdos and dark eye makeup,
    also included Ronnie Spector's sister Estelle Bennett and their 
    cousin, Nedra Talley Ross. All three came from the New York City 
    neighborhood known as Spanish Harlem.
    Phil Spector's attorney, Andrew Bart, said in his opening 
    statement that Ronnie Spector signed away her portion of the 
    group's earnings in her divorce settlement.
    Bart also said the Ronettes were trying to rewrite their contract 
    to add items that may be common in contemporary contracts but did 
    not exist three decades ago. He said Spector would concede to 
    owing, at most, $350,000 in unpaid royalties to the trio.
    Ronnie Spector was slated to testify Wednesday.
