In October 1962, Ellie teamed with Phil Spector, a Leiber & Stoller protégé, who had started his own label. Neither Jeff nor Ellie was pulling in the steady income they desired. Jeff Barry was writing weak material with Resnick, and Ellie Greenwich was doing the same with Tony Powers. Only after they got married did they finally hit upon the idea of writing as a team. Leiber and Stoller brought Ellies new husband into Trio.
Ellie introduced Jeff to Spector. Lala Brooks, the new lead singer of the Crystals, needed something to showcase her vocal chops, and the threesome obliged.
