Estelle Bennett (The Ronettes)

Let's belatedly mark the passing of Estelle Bennett - one of the original Ronettes - who passed away last week. (That's Estelle in the middle of the picture, between cousin Nedra Talley, and sister Veronica aka Ronnie Spector).

They had the wall of sound and a great look. You can't find much from them on YouTube or iTunes, but their Greatest Hits and Christmas albums are essential.
