There’s no doubt Phil Spector is one of the most influential (and controversial) record producers in rock and roll.
His trademark was the Wall of Sound; a production technique using layered musical arrangements with backing bands the size of orchestras.
Songs produced with the Phil Spector touch included: “Da Doo Ron Ron,” “Be My Baby” and “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’.”
Spector’s stable of artists included: The Crystals, The Ronettes and the Righteous Brothers.
I discovered this book, Collecting Phil Spector: The Man, the Legend and the Music, a few months ago.
It’s by John J. Fitzpatrick and James E. Fogerty.
It was published in 1991 and is long out of print.
Collecting Phil Spector includes hundreds of photos of all the records with the Spector touch.
The photos included here are just a small sampling taken from the book.
