Ellie Greenwich (1940-2009)


A veritable sea of hits began with Ellie Greenwich, who passed away yesterday at the age of 68.

"Leader Of The Pack"


”Da Do Run Run”


Without trying, you've heard at least a dozen of her songs, her name synonymous with "girl groups," and a pre-lethal Phil Spector. Farewell to a hit machine.

Sincerely,
Letters From A Tapehead

Apologies for the quiet September. My time was needed everywhere but here. That said, I'm happy to end the month with some good singles ...
