May 7, 2018
There’s a convincing argument to be made that if there is a heaven above, then this is the music they’ll be playing at the Pearly Gates, such is the divinity of this timeless classic.
All of the stars have aligned here, from Ronnie Spector’s sassy vocals, the back up of Estelle Bennett and Nedra Talley, the precise and heartfelt playing of the Wrecking Crew, that drum intro from Hal Blaine and of course Phil Spector’s ambitious and sumptuous production.
It really doesn’t get better than this, does it?
