Da Doo Ron Ron: More from the Ellie Greenwich [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
2012 release, Ace Records' second volume of numbers penned by the Brill Building-based husband and wife team Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich. One of the most successful songwriting teams of their time, their insanely catchy melodies, stick-in-your head lyrics and nonsense syllable refrains were aimed straight at the hearts of teenagers, squarely hitting the bulls-eye more often than not. This compendium of proven classics and lesser-known gems, lovingly compiled and annotated by Mick Patrick, will go a long way toward explaining the special spot the couple occupy in so many hearts, especially those of girl group aficionados.
