I bought this as a Christmas present for my dad, my way of apologising for stealing his vinyl copy of Echoes Of The 60s many years ago. This is a superb collection of Phil's finest moments. It's unusual to see a one disc Spector retrospective on compact disc so if you're not ready to jump on the Back To Mono 4 disc boxset I strongly advise you buy this. The sound is absolutely pristine as you might expect - Phil would never let it be released otherwise. Good packaging which I was impressed to see includes details of who played what on these miraculous mini-symphonies. It's a cliche but they really don't make 'em like this anymore. Genius.

The Christmas album is included as a seperate cd which has been widely available for a few years. It's magic! Let your cynicism be blown away by the goddess Darlene Love.

This release gives you, at a bargain price, most of the Spector masterpieces that the average person would want. In the days of vinyl, I had the Christmas album and a "best of the rest" with a very similar listing to the second CD of this set. In the absence of such a collection on CD, a few years ago I bought the "Back to Mono" box set, which is more of a "definitive" collection, and priced accordingly. If this double set had been available then, I would have bought it instead.

Buy while it's still on the catalogue. Bargain Spector compilations like this don't appear very often. You can, of course, buy the Christmas album on its own at any time, for not much less (and sometimes a bit more) than the price of this set.

Format: Audio CD
Phil Spector the oh so slightly unhinged producer is credited with pioneering the wall of sound approach to making music, which is where this collection gets its name from. That basically means that Spector threw as much as possible into the mix. Thundering percussion, strings with more layers than an armadillo on a firing range, harmonies so glutinous they would put a class of five year old off sweets for weeks, and Spector was never a believer of less is more. Indeed it's fair to say he was a believer of more is more then some more should be chucked on top in case the original more wasn't enough.

However this is no easy thing to do and make it sound as wondrous a much of the material on here does. It could be a dicophonous disaster but Spector knew what he was doing and what's more he had the songs and the artists to pull it off. This is pop music so gaudily effervescent, so giddily emphatic that it makes even the lushest of contemporary music -Girls Aloud at their capricious best say- sound like Bonnie Prince Billy. Next to Spectors corpulent beauties virtually everything else is reduced to a size zero non-entity.

T o hear The Ronettes peerlessly perform "Baby I Love You" or "Be My Baby" is to hear pop at its zenith -so melodious and sonically impelling that you could be stood in the middle of a minefield, foot hovering over potential oblivion, and still become caught up in the song. The same goes for The Crystals "Then He Kissed Me" while "River Deep, Mountain High" is one of the most staggering moments of halcyon pop ...well ever. Tina Turner may have gone on to be a lumbering embarrassment but here she is incendiary.

CAN'T recommend this 2 ALBUM CD highly enough, its absolutely terrific

Phil Spectors WALL OF SOUND production + fantastic vocals from the likes of Darlene Love , The Ronettes & The Crystals make this CD a must have for any fans of SPECTORS music , he even produced The Righteous Bros smash hit UNCHAINED MELODY and it is by far the best cover of this song ever made . SPECTORS brilliant production and the fantastic artists that sung for him made his style of music my all time fav 60s sound , and in my oppinion its absolutely timeless & untouchable

The first disc / PHIL SPECTORS WALL OF SOUND RETROSPECTIVE has 22 tracks and is choc full of classic hit singles , my fav is HE'S A REBEL ,its listed as being sung by The Crystals but I am sure I read somewhere that it is actually the sensational voice of DARLENE LOVE that is belting out this tune , also love every single that The Ronettes ever recorded - BE MY BABY is simply a classic , and it was used to great effect in the opening scenes of the movie Dirty Dancing.

Disc 2 is probably the most well known and best Christnmas album of all time, SPECTORS production has improved all the well known christmas songs by miles- making every tune a christmas classic , and once again DARLENE LOVES vocals are just incredible - especially on the fabulous CHRISTMAS ( BABY PLEASE COME HOME ).

BUY THIS ALBUM & ENJOY THE AWESOME WONDER OF - PHIL SPECTORS WALL OF SOUND PRODUCTION

This is a great package at a great price.Good old wig wearing,gun toting megalomaniac Phil Spector sure made some excellent tunes at his height,Tom Wolfe reffered to Phil as the "tycoon of teen".This cd contains many classics from Be My Baby,River Deep Mountain High,Unchained Melody.You also get the legendary Phil Spector christmas album.Credit should be applied all round,especially the lyric writers.Obviously Phils the star though.I believe a film is being made with Al Pacino as Spector,should be cool as they do not make stars like Phil anymore,borderline crazy genius flanked by bodyguards,taking no prisoners whether its Lennon or Cohen.Obviously the situation has ended with Phil behind bars,though lefty Hollywood is slowly starting a Spector is innocent campaign.Spector is a one man parable on stardom and madness.For the time being though listen to this great cd and remind yourself of the guys majestic talent.
