The ronettes be my baby walking in the rain


Recording it took for ever. I rehearsed in New York with the Ronettes, then I had to go to California on my own to sing the lead. My mom usually flew with me but because it was so far she said: “Honey, you’re 18. You can do this on your own now.” Phil picked me up at the airport and kept saying: “This record is going to be amazing.”

Per the song’s now-mythic origin story, Spector made the orchestra rehearse the song 42 times before he started recording, and Ronnie spent three days getting the vocals right -- a style of recording that’s standard now, but was anything but in the early ‘60s. The backing band was a supergroup before there were supergroups, with Leon Russell on keyboards and Darlene Love, Sonny Bono, and a 17-year-old Cher on backup vocals.
