Wall of Sound [Import]
EU-only collection from the eccentric sculptor of Pop sounds. Phil Spector changed the landscape of music with innovative productions that influenced virtually every pop producer who followed in his wake. The traditional drums-bass-guitar combination was still the standard in the early 1960s, and only two-track technology was available. Spector created what would become known as the Wall of Sound, using large bands (with several guitarists, two bassists, full string and horn sections), echo chambers, powerful vocalists, and symphonic structures not previously associated with youth-oriented pop music. This quintessential collector's edition compiles Spector's most essential and enduring work from the beginning of his career, gathering a variety of the great sides he produced for a dozen different labels between 1961 and 1962. This collection features his early smashes as well as lesser heard tracks which are just as enjoyable as the hits. This is the material upon which Phil Spector's reputation was built. HooDoo Records.
