Among aficionados of the girl group sound, there can’t be five acts more beloved than the Crystals. Their best-known songs, which include “He’s a Rebel,” “Uptown,” “Da Doo Ron Ron,” “Then He Kissed Me,” and “There’s No Other Like My Baby,” are among the finest examples of the best that American rock & roll had to offer in the period before the British Invasion; and decades into the CD era, the group’s records are still prized in their original vinyl pressings even by non-collectors, who seem to recognize that there was something special about the Crystals’ work.
One of the defining girl groups of the early 60s, whose members came from different sections of Brooklyn were the link between the simpler doo-wop harmonies of the 50s and the sophisticated look and sound of pop divas like the Supremes. They are the group that are credited with first putting the Philles label on the pop map.
Fifty years ago, legendary producer Phil Spector established his own record label Philles, and a new sound began to ring out of radio speakers across America. The sound Spector created lush, resonant, and dramatic, blending the sentimental swoon of string sections with the excitement of rock and roll was so different, so instantly recognizable, it earned its own name: The Wall of Sound. Through the 1960s, with songs like Be My Baby, Then He Kissed Me, Walking in the Rain, and Da Doo Ron Ron, he ruled the pop charts and made artists like Darlene Love, The Crystals and The Ronettes household names. For twenty years, no new collections of these artists, Philles s most successful, have been released, and only a limited amount of the tracks have been available digitally. The newly remastered greatest hits collections contain the best and most iconic recordings by these artists, and their familiarity will be sure to strike a chord with fans both young and old.
