She serves up the one original, "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)," which has the same dramatic thunder and anthemic backing vocals as Spector's "Be My Baby." Session musicians include Sonny Bono on percussion, and Don Randi and Leon Russell on keyboards, among others.

(DBW) Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass, Whipped Cream & Other Delights (1965) Trumpeter/bandleader/entrepreneur Herb Alpert had formed A&M Records with Jerry Moss in 1962, and this second Tijuana Brass release became the label's biggest hit, topping the charts for eight weeks though the only single, "A Taste Of Honey," peaked at #7.

Formed in 1968 by keyboard player Al Kooper (Child Is Father To The Man), they went on to huge commercial success with their eponymous 1969 LP, which was recorded after Kooper quit and vocalist David Clayton-Thomas joined.

If all of this sounds like Frank Zappa in an unusually experimental mood, well, it's no coincidence - Zappa and Beefheart already had been friends for years, and Zappa produced the record.

Soxx & the Blue Jeans, and Darlene Love: I'm not crazy about Ronnie Spector's nasal voice, and the Crystals' Lala Brooks isn't the most distinctive singer, but Love (who also sings most of the songs credited to Bob B.
