Quick Overview

Ellie Greenwich is easily one of the most recognizable songwriting names of the 60s. Along with Jeff Barry, Tony Powers and others, she crafted songs that are as familiar today as when first issued in that golden decade. Songs such as “Leader Of The Pack”, “Be My Baby”, “Da Doo Ron Ron”, “Chapel Of Love” and “Do Wah Diddy Diddy” (with the extra “Diddy” courtesy of Manfred Mann).
On this CD, we offer something different. We feature stereo versions of the Ronettes “Be My Baby, the Exciters’ “Doo Wah Diddy” and Baby Jane & The Rock-a-byes “Hickory Dickory Dock” plus many others. We then add some of Ellie Greenwich’s lesser known songs that collectors are searching for from the early 60s. Finally, we include 7 top quality demo tracks; sung by the great lady herself, giving the fans the opportunity to see what a fine singer Ellie was. So, yes, there’s Ellie’s demos of “Maybe I Know”, “The Look Of Love”, “Do Wah Diddy” – and many more.
There’s a 24 page booklet, which, as has come to be expected from RRR, contains track by track notes, label and album cover scans and rare pics. 8 tracks in STEREO with two tracks being featured in TRUE STEREO for the very first time on CD. The introduction is by noted rock and roll historian, Brian Gari and what makes this special - is that Brian was involved in Ellie’s world in the 70s and he shares reminiscences of this period with us. A must read!
