Do-Wah-Diddy: Words & Music By Ellie Greenwich [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
2008 compilation spotlighting the husband and wife songwriting team Ellie Greenwich & Jeff Barry. Although they wrote together for just three or four years, you'd need a box set to contain all the hit songs of Ellie Greenwich and Jeff Barry. Until such a pipedream becomes a reality, this single disc compilation of hits, rarities and other gems can't be beaten as a representation of their work. The collection contains famous tracks by the Shangri-Las, the Jelly Beans, the Dixie Cups, the Butterflys, Lesley Gore, the Chiffons, the Drifters and the Beach Boys; the first released versions of 'Do-Wah-Diddy' and 'Hanky Panky' (from before the Manfreds and Tommy James got their hands on the songs); plus new-to-CD collectables from the Darlettes, Karen Verros, the Fleetwood's, the Majors and Tony Pass. And that's just for starters. 24 tracks. Ace.
