Ellie Gee & the Jets

Ellie Gee was one of the pseudonyms that best Brill Building songwriter Ellie Greenwich recorded under during her early profession. Beneath the name Ellie Gee & the Jets, she released a 1961 solitary for the Madison label, “I Proceed, YOU DECIDE TO GO”/”Crimson Corvette.” “I Proceed, YOU DECIDE TO GO,” though a Greenwich structure, can be a mediocre and formulaic early-’60s pop/rock and roll ditty, with some annoyingly histrionic feminine back-up vocals. “Reddish colored Corvette,” co-written by long term Greenwich composing partner/spouse Jeff Barry, can be a lot more doo wop-influenced and gutsier, though still not really a very interesting music, embellished by deep male non-sense vocals and zooming car sound files. Both sides from the 45 could be heard for the most likely unauthorized Ellie Greenwich double-CD compilation Brill Building Seems: Recordings 1958-1985, for the Brill Shade label.
