Biography

Amazingly, Darlene Love, a superb vocalist, hasn’t had much of a track record as a solo singer, at least not in terms of hits. Love was a founding member of The Blossoms in 1957. They did several sessions and were resident singers on the television show Shindig. Love sang lead vocals on ” He’s A Rebel,” which was credited to The Crystals, and “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah,” which was issued as Bob B. Soxx and the Bluejeans. She cut six singles for Phil Spector’s Phillies label, with ” Wait Till My Bobby Gets Back Home” the most successful. Love became busy as an actress, but reunited with Spector for the 1977 single ” Lord, If You’re A Woman.” Love appeared in all four Lethal Weapon films, and was also in the Royal Shakespeare Company’s co-production of Stephen King’s Carrie. Her 1990 LP, Paint Another Picture, failed to chart in America. Love later toured as a background vocalist with Cher. She appeared briefly on the soap opera Another World in 1993.

    With this being the last Christmas for Letterman's Late Show, I sincerely hope they have something special for David & Darlene's last Christmas together.

    I changed the artist of 'He's a Rebel' to Darlene Love in my iTunes. Her voice makes that song.

    слушал только про рождество, и это одна из лучших песен подобного стиля. кстати, всегда жалел, что традиция рождественских альбомов не прижилась в отечественном рок-н-ролле.

    Baby Please Come Home is probably the best Christmas song ever. There's a somewhat emotional undercurrent to it that is lacking in most Xmas tunes... it's really a love song disguised as a holiday tune. Brilliance. [2]
