RIP Ronnie Spector

hardwork

I used to work at a boutique reissue record company in the early 90s in the warehouse. We had an in-house mail order department which was very popular with our customer base. I cannot tell you how many copies of the "Best of the Ronettes" I personally pulled and shipped out all over the world to God knows whom all. Many, many hundreds at a minimum.

RIP Ronnie Spector.
