The Ronettes hit and Phil's flips

Norman Jopling, Record Mirror, 7 December 1963

BACK IN 1958 Estella & Ronnie Bennett bought a disc between them called 'To Know Him Is To Love Him'. So did their cousin Nadra Talley, but then, all the girls were not singing together, or even singing for a living. It wasn't until years later that they formed up into The Ronettes (taken from Ronnie's name) and made 'Be My Baby'.
