5.0 out of 5 stars Genius not a Copycat, 5 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Phil Spector: The Early Productions (Audio CD)
If Phil Spector was a copycat so was Pablo Picasso - the 'genius' comes from using, reinterpreting and then creating something new and very different (Phil Spector was a genius not a copycat). Now that's of my chest, go and buy this wonderful mix of early productions. From start to finish the quality of the music on this cd never drops below very good. Like most 'Ace' cd's the booklet is great and packed with info and label scans. Music wise the well known tracks sound great - 'Spanish Harlem', 'Under the moon of love', 'Pretty little angel eyes' and 'Every breath I Take'. Some of my favourites would be 'I'm so happy'- the Ducanes and 'That's alright baby' - Kel Osborne and 'I love you Betty' - Terry Day both the latter showing early signs of the 'wall of sound'. I would recommend this cd to anyone who likes fine music.

Mozart was a genius at the age of five! Perhaps Spector and Charles are both mere underlings.
