Ronnie Spector – English Heart

My teenage years were influenced among other things, by rock and roll and girl groups. Two of my favorite girl groups were The Shangri-Las and The Ronettes.

Last week, Ronnie Spector released a new recording, English Heart on 429 Records. The album is Ronnie’s personal love letter to 1960s Britain, where she and her fellow Ronettes held court with British Invasion royalty. The eleven tracks of English Heart include songs by the Kinks (“Tired of Waiting”), the Animals (“Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood”), the Beatles (“I’ll Follow the Sun”), and Gerry & the Pacemakers (“Don’t Let the Sun Catch You Crying”).

Here is her interview with Scott Simon from NPR Music last week. Love her energy.
