Well it might have been essential but for one glaring omission. (Ike and) Tina Turner's "River deep, mountain high" is given even greater significance by the fact that it's not here. The tracks appear to me to be in order - though I haven't fine checked - and the last track is "Black Pearl" from The Checkmates Ltd. which was released in April 1969. "River deep" was released in May 1966. So there's no reason for this track not to be present due to an arbitrary cut-off date. It's possible it's not there for licensing reasons - the bulk of the tracks come from Philles of course but that doesn't include those at the start. I do have another theory. It's just possible that the compiler was a fan of music critic and writer, Dave Marsh. Dave's the author of "The Heart And Soul Of Rock And Roll: The 1001 Greatest Singles Ever made". He excludes "River deep" from his selection and makes quite a point of doing so - he even refers to it as a muddle. I suspect quite a few people would disagree with that conclusion. I certainly would.

I have to say though, I think the compiler has got pretty well everything else right. There are sufficient reminders of Spector's pre-Philles work to at least give an idea where he was coming from. The Teddy Bears "To know him is to love him" is always welcome. Spector's first understanding of the producer's art came from Teddy Bears' sessions even if no credit was shown. "Corrine, Corrina" from Ray Peterson gives us Phil officially at the production console. It's not dissimilar in style to Leiber & Stoller productions of the same timeframe demonstrating Phil's ability to learn speedily from his mentors.

How can anything calling itself The Essential Phil Spector fail to include the apex of his career? Without River Deep, Mountain High by Ike and Tina Turner it is committing a crime against music.

This track features all of Spector's madness with drums, piano, strings, and everything but the kitchen sink building to an orgasmic crescendo, with the rasp of Mrs T's vocals literally screaming over the top.

Now that's essential. Leaving it out?

Barmy, simply mad.
