Nedra Talley1946: Nedra Talley is born in New York City. She teams with her cousins Estelle and Veronica Bennett to become The Ronettes. Citing differences with producer Phil Spector, Nedra and Estelle leave the group in 1967. For 16 months, from September 1963 to December 1964, The Ronettes place five singles in the Top 40. In addition to Be My Baby and Baby I Love You, these include the enduring girl-group classics Walking in the Rain (#23), (The Best Part of) Breakin’ Up (#39) and Do I Love You? (#34). These recordings are the finest of Spector’s “Wall of Sound” era.
