  • Phil Spector

    Record producer and songwriter Phil Spector wasn’t a performer per se, but he is responsible for a style of production that has had a profound impact on rock and pop. His signature “Wall of Sound” technique produces a dense, layered collage of sound by employing a large group of musicians and often doubling and tripling many instruments played in unison. With his label Philles Records, Spector not only pioneered the 1960s girl-group sound but produced over 25 Top-40 hits between 1960 and 1965 including the Ronettes’ “Be My Baby,” the Crystals’ “Then He Kissed Me” and “Da Doo Ron Ron,” and the Righteous Brothers’ “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin” and “Unchained Melody.” Over the course of his career, he also produced records by the Beatles (Let It Be), George Harrison (All Things Must Pass), John Lennon (Imagine), Ike and Tina Turner (River Deep – Mountain High), Leonard Cohen (Death of a Ladies’ Man), and the Ramones (End of the Century). Spector’s artistic vision and pop-rock symphonies are absolutely brilliant on vinyl.
