June 30, 2012

The Ronettes are now members of the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Veronica Bennett (later Ronnie Spector), Estelle Bennett, and Nedra Talley formed The Darlings during 1958 and later took the name Ronettes.

“Walking In The Rain” was their last big hit. Released during the early fall of 1964, it reached number 23 on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart. It also reached number 29 on the Rhythm & Blues Chart.

It was written by Phil Spector, Barry Mann, and Cynthia Weil. It was a prime example of Spector’s Wall Of Sound approcach to recording. It was the only Phil Spector produced song to ever win a GRAMMY AWARD.
