Various Artists - Phil Spector: Back To Mono (1958-1969) (RS500 - #64)


OK . . . so it turned out that Phil Spector was crazier than a barrel of snakes. Fair enough. I heard enough insane stories about him prior to the Lana Clarkson murder (for instance, pulling a gun on the Ramones during the recording of End Of The Century - those guys, who weren't strangers to violence and life on the streets, were legitimately scared of him) to know that the guy had a serious screw loose, and bad stuff would come down on him sooner or later.

But with that said, the guy was, frankly, a musical genius, and the music he produced throughout the 1960s isn't just classic, but part of the overall soundtrack of America during that time. Sadly, until this album set was released in 1991, there was no collection available that grouped together all of the songs and artists he produced, and provided a thorough overview of his career. That's why this set is so important. Through these three discs, you can see the development of Spector's famed Wall Of Sound, and see how it was effectively and devastatingly used in such hits as "Be My Baby" and "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'". Practically every song on this collection is a stone-cold classic.

In my opinion, this is one of the best boxed sets EVER released, and a must-have for any music lover. Enjoy:
