Ronnie Spector’s rock & roll heart has always shined brightly, even though her homicidal former producer-husband, Phil Spector, used to bury her fiery vocals in the 1960s in a syrupy glaze of glossy orchestration and layers of distancing reverb and echo. Later, her spouse kept her as a literal prisoner in his mansion in the early ’70s before she finally escaped and resuscitated her long-delayed solo career. Unlike other pop singers of the ’60s, Ronnie Spector embraced the spirit of punk rock on her 1999 EP, She Talks to Rainbows, which featured a duet with Joey Ramone and one of the most poignant versions of Johnny Thunders’ eternally heartbreaking ballad “You Can’t Put Your Arms Around a Memory.” The singer recounted much of her travails and triumphs in recent stage shows and a 1990 memoir, Be My Baby: How I Survived Mascara, Miniskirts and Madness.
