PHIL'S SPECTRE: WALL OF SOUNDALIKES / VARIOUS Vinyl Record
Limited 180 gram red vinyl LP pressing. Includes inner sleeve featuring rare photos and a 3000-word track commentary incorporating interviews with producers Nino Tempo, James Holvay and Peter Antell. Phil Spector did not produce the tracks on this LP. They all just sound as if he might have. Spector's sessions at Gold Star Studios in Los Angeles were celebrated for their extravagance. Using massed voices, an army of musicians and cavernous tape echo, his huge productions possessed a distinct aural identity. Many record producers, songwriters and arrangers attempted to hitch a ride on the Spector bandwagon but few met with his approval. "There's Beach Blanket Bingo, which is you guys," he told producers Charlie Greene and Brian Stone. "And there's me - Fellini. " Here, spanning the period 1963 to 1967, are a dozen convincing mirror images of his Wall of Sound.
