1960 to 1970
New York, New York, United States
60s US vocal pop group
Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich wrote some of the best girl group material during that magical era, yet they were not only writers, producers, and arrangers, but also musicians themselves. Greenwich and Barry formed the popular dummy group The Raindrops which had quite a chart presence between 1963-64. The dummy group was dropped like most others when it failed to be a profitable venture. The Raindrops received their due when their complete recordings were issued on The Raindrops in 1994, including four tracks which had yet to see the light of day.
