Veronica Bennett, 10 August 1943, Harlem, New York City, USA. The distinctive lead singer in the Ronettes first embarked on a solo career in 1964 with two low-key singles (So Young and Why Dont They Let Us Fall In Love) credited to Veronica. Her marriage to her producer, Phil Spector, effectively forestalled Ronnies career and a three-year hiatus followed her groups 1966 offering, I Can Hear Music. Ronnie re-emerged in 1969 on A&M Records with You Came, You Saw, You Conquered!. Credited to The Ronettes Featuring The Voice Of Veronica, this excellent single was a commercial flop. Try Some, Buy Some, a then-unreleased George Harrison song, marked the recording debut of Ronnie Spector in 1971. By this point her marriage was crumbling and the ensuing divorce allowed Ronnie to pursue the career her erstwhile husband struggled to deny her.
