Fi - Hi Podcast Ep 9 : Ronnie Spector on The Chantels & Frankie Lymon and The Teenagers

Ronnie Spector is the legendary frontwoman of The Ronettes.  Their infamous single "Be My Baby" was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999 and Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys said "it is the greatest record ever produced."  In 1970, Ronnie sang on the Jimi Hendrix track "Earth Blues" and her 1971 single "Try Some, Buy Some" was issued by The Beatles' Apple Records.  The single was written and produced by George Harrison and features a backing band including Pete Ham of Badfinger and Leon Russell.  She is also prominently featured on Eddie Money's 1986 hit "Take Me Home Tonight" and The Ronettes were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007.  In recent years, Ronnie has received overwhelming critical acclaim for her stage production of her life story, Beyond The Beehive.  This year Ronnie released English Heart, her new studio album which features her renditions of songs by The Beatles, The Kinks, The Animals and more.  English Heart is Ronnie's love letter to 1960s Britain.  During this episode of the Fidelity High podcast, Ronnie discusses The Chantels & Frankie Lymon and The Teenagers.
