BABY, I LOVE YOU * THE RONETTES * PHILLES 118 * USA
The follow up record to Be My Baby (Phil Spector's offer to lead singer Veronica 'Ronnie' Bennett) was Baby, I Love You (her reply) and as if to endorse the fact, like young lovers proclaiming their love by carving their name in a heart on a tree, in the run off of the record is the legend Phil + Annette! Like songs about hardship and struggle that were found in Blues, Soul and Reggae recordings, it is the veracity of this song, and others like it, that might well have given recordings like these an extra something that was transmitted to the young which spoke directly to their hearts; as Blaise Pascal said "The heart knows reasons which reason knows nothing of."
