Once a Christmas favourite on the Late Show with David Letterman and elsewhere, Darlene Love (Wright) recorded "Chapel of Love" (Jeff Barry - Ellie Greenwich - Phil Spector) in 1963 with the Wrecking Crew. The song was originally written for the Ronettes.

The Dixie Cups (Barbara Ann Hawkins, Rosa lee Hawkins and Joan Marie Johnson) 1964 issue was the first release on Leiber and Stoller's Red Bird Records which they ran with George Goldner. The trio, originally from New Orleans, was managed by Joe Jones of "You Talk Too Much" fame.
