Pop legend Ronnie Spector reveals the story of her dreamlike rise from the streets of Harlem to the pinnacle of rock stardom as lead singer of the Ronettes, and her nightmare descent into madness as the wife of Phil Spector, the pop hitmaker who kept her a virtual prisoner behind the locked doors of his darkened Beverly Hills mansion. Ronnie s escape from that ordeal, and her subsequent struggle to reclaim her voice, her career, and her sanity, provide an emotion-packed climax to this smart, funny, and inspiring autobiography, named one of The Top 25 Rock Memoirs of All Time by Rolling Stone. Now available in a newly redesigned edition, Be My Baby is a fan s dream come true. Featuring 75 stunning photographs from Ronnie s personal collection many appearing in print for the first time this fully indexed volume also includes a thoroughly updated discography that provides the most comprehensive overview of Ronnie s recording career ever published. Ronnie Spector became an icon at the age of 19, when she rose to fame as lead singer of the Ronettes, the influential girl group responsible for a string of hits that included Baby I Love You, Walking in the Rain, and Be My Baby, which Brian Wilson has called the greatest record ever made. The embodiment of the heart, soul, and passion of rock and roll, Ronnie Spector was inducted, with the Ronettes, into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March 2007.
