The Crystals    1960s

 

Ms. Alston

was a choir-trained

teenager in Brooklyn

when she formed the Crystals

with her high school friends

Mary Thomas,

Dolores Kenniebrew

(who is known as Dee Dee),

Myrna Giraud

and Patsy Wright.

 

Their harmonious songs,

often about young romance,

were like those

of many other popular

all-female R&B vocal groups

in the early 1960s,

like the Shirelles

and the Ronettes.

 

The producer Phil Spector

signed the Crystals in 1961,

and they became an early example

of his dense, layered

“wall of sound”

production style.
