The Ronettes - ShoutI love the Ronette's rendition of this song. The back up dancers here are super cute. From left to right they are: Pam Freeman, Anita Mann, and Barbara Alston (a best guess). The 4th dancer's name is unknown to us at this time. If you can fill in any of the blanks please update us. Thank you to cookiesdaddy for providing this information.
The Ronettes - Walking In The Rain - 1964I first heard "Walking In The Rain" in late 1964, I was just 12 years old, and from the moment I heard it, I was blown away by the special effects, its incredibly beautiful melody, but most of all by THAT voice, Ronnie Spector's unique voice, and her tender phrasing on this song is nothing short of perfection. There is an elegance of orchestration, of melodic build up, that make it a majestic and memorable song; but it's the believability of Ronnie's poignant vocals that make it a CLASSIC. I have the 45, I have the Spector box set, and now the song lives in my i-pod, it has been with me all these years, and it was time to pay it the tribute it deserves- This is what this little video is all about, an audiovisual honor to the artist, writers and producer, for having given us this most perfect of records.
About the song-
In November 1964, the Ronettes released "Walking In the Rain" (Philles 123), their most dramatic song to date. The Mann/Weil/Spector written ballad reached number twenty three and won a Grammy for Best Sound Effects, the only Grammy Spector ever received.
Ronnie Spector amazingly completed her vocals on the first take, and she did so beautifully- Her poignant phrasing and honest soulful singing is what makes this record so special and so believable. Add to that the haunting ethereal chorus by Estelle and Nedra and lush and dramatic "Wall of Sound" orchestration/production by Phil Spector and you have the perfect teen rock symphony.
