Amy Winehouse’s music undoubtedly made a large impact on the lives of many fans, as well as the state of pop, soul, and R&B music and the music industry as a whole. But what we are beginning to realize more as a result of her untimely, tragic death on July 23 is how big of a mark she made on fellow musicians, both contemporaries and predecessors. When Winehouse burst onto the scene, it was evident that her music and appearance had been influenced by pop groups of the 1960s, the latter of which most notably payed homage to the beehive hairdo and overextended eyeliner-donned ladies of The Ronettes. The admiration was mutual though, as The Ronettes’ lead singer, Ronnie Spector, has been known to perform some of Winehouse’s songs at her concerts over the past few years, at times with Winehouse in attendance. Back in 2009, with the assistance of producers Richard Gottheher and Phenom, Spector recorded her own impressive rendition of the title track to Winehouse’s sophomore album, Back To Black. The song has been under lock and key since, but is now on sale as a charity single to donate money to Daytop Village substance abuse treatment centers.
