Ronnie Spector's Ronettes were one of four artists on probably the best Christmas album of all time, A Christmas Gift to You, more commonly known as Phil Spector's Christmas album. Issued in 1963 when the producer's innovative Wall of Sound stood tall and he still wasn't quite terminally weird, it was a glorious barrage of pop tinsel, with Ronnie's sultry tones spicing up Yuletide nuggets like "Sleigh Ride" and "Frosty the Snowman." Ronnie long ago left her ex-husband to stranger pursuits, but her episodic career is still tied to Ronettes gems like "Be My Baby" and "Walking in the Rain." Her joyously intact voice will likely tackle those along with the seasonal fare, including stuff from her nicely done 2010 Best Christmas Ever EP.
