In 1973, shortly after her divorce from record producer Phil Spector, Ronnie Spector reformed the world-famous girl group The Ronettes. After recruiting Chip and vocalist Diane Linton (and later Denise Edwards), "Ronnie And The Ronettes" made their debut at Richard Nader's "Rock and Roll Revival" show at Madison Square Garden. Later that year, Ronnie signed with Buddha Records and recorded two singles: 1973's "Go Out and Get It" and 1974's "I Wish I Never Saw The Sunshine" (as Ronnie Spector and The Ronettes), a remake of a song recorded by the original line-up. After the two singles failed to chart, Ronnie went solo, and the "new" Ronettes with Chip and Denise disbanded.
