About Rosie and the Originals

Rosie & The Originals were an American 1960s group best known for their single, 'Angel Baby.' Fronted by lead singer Rosie Hamlin, the group produced two singles (including 'Angel Baby') for Highland Records and, like many other artists of the era, ended up in protracted legal battles with their record label over royalties and credits. Singer Rosie Hamlin wrote the lyrics for 'Angel Baby' as a poem for 'my very first boyfriend' when she was 14 years old, still attending Mission Bay High School in San Diego, California. When she was 15, she and some friends rented the only recording studio they could find within 100 miles of San Diego located in San Marcos, California to record the song. The studio was owned by an airplane mechanic who had taken part of his hanger to make it.
