Rolling Stone calls her “the original bad girl of rock,” but this year Ronnie Spector has been very nice. The iconic singer who has influenced generations of musicians from the Beatles and Brian Wilson, to Patti Smith and the Ramones, through to Amy Winehouse and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, – and recorded some of the most indelible holiday music of all time along the way – is set to release a new collection ‘Ronnie Spector’s Best Christmas Ever,’ on November 9, via Bad Girl Sounds/The Orchard.

‘Best Christmas Ever’ features five rare holiday gems destined to become contemporary classics. Ronnie recorded four tracks under the guidance of Bobby Eli – the famed Philadelphia producer, songwriter and founding member of MFSB – and the fifth song with producer Johnny Gale (Ryan Shaw/Robert Randolph), with contributions from her long-time touring musicians, bassist Jeremy Chatzky (Bruce Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions Band, Steve Earle) and keyboardist Joe McGinty (Psychedelic Furs, Ryan Adams), among others.
