Update 7/28 1pm:
One of Amy's big influences was Ronnie Spector.
(Perez) Ronnie decided to do something very special to pay tribute to her. Two years ago, Ronnie actually went into the studio to record Back to Black properly and now, she's releasing it as a single in memory of her admirer and friend, with proceeds going to Daytop Village substance abuse treatment centers. In addition, she wrote a beautiful piece about Amy for RollingStone.com...
Any New Amy tunes coming in the future?
Answer right now:
"Spokesman Chris Goodman says there is "plenty" of material, but there have been no discussions yet about releasing anything.The Guardian newspaper Thursday quoted an unnamed spokesman at record label Universal as saying Winehouse had left the "framework" of about a dozen songsSales of her music have soared since her death.

album 'Back to Black' is the #1 seller on iTunes/Amazon since her death
