One of the episodes of Letterman that was mythed while I was gone was one with Darlene Love, one of Phil Spector’s singers. She sings Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) a song she was the original singer of. And she just tears it up. It’s pretty impressive that she can still belt it out at her age.

Check it out on youtube: Darlene Love on Letterman

(You can also check out the U2 cover of the same song from back in the Bono-has-long-hair-and-wears-dumb-hats phase.)

crazy cheap: Phil Spector Back to Mono box set

I had to wait till after Christmas to post this (it was present-related), but the Phil Sector Back to Mono 4 CD box set is only $16.99 at amazon, brand new.

I have it (and paid a lot more it than that, used) and it’s fantastic. 3 great CDs with songs like “Be My Baby”, “He’s a Rebel”, “Da Doo Ron Ron”, “Then He Kissed Me”, “Spanish Harlem” and “Unchained Melody.” The fourth CD is the Spector Christmas CD, which is enjoyable during that season.

In any case, this is a great price for a great and worthwhile box set.
