9781905139019: Little Symphonies: A Phil Spector Reader

At the forefront of the sixties pop explosion, Phil Spector was the first record producer to be universally hailed as a genius. Using a combination of imagination, musicality and sheer chutzpah, his records became as important and influential as any from that exciting decade. His `Wall of Sound' was widely imitated, but never bettered, and the records he made with the Righteous Brothers (`You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin''), the Ronettes (`Be My Baby', `Walking In The Rain'), the Crystals (`Da Doo Ron Ron', `Then He Kissed Me') and Ike & Tina Turner (`River Deep Mountain High') as well as John Lennon's `Imagine' are among the most played to this day.
Little Symphonies is about Spector's music: examining how his distinctive records were created. The book compiles the very best writing about Phil Spector -- including pieces by Nik Cohn, Greg Shaw, Dave Marsh, Dee Dee Ramone, Mick Patrick and Richard Williams -- as well as specially commissioned interviews, previously unpublished writing and a selection of fascinating and varied appendices.

Review:

An essential addition to the bookshelves of all Spector fans. --The Beat magazine, August 2011

Little Symphonies packs a mighty punch by virtue of the sheer diversity of its contents.
--Shindig magazine, October 2011

All anyone could need for guidance through some of the most magical pop ever committed to tape. --Record Collector, October 2011

That amazing Wall of Sound deconstructed, brick by brick. Fine reportage brings the shadowy svengali to life.
--The Word magazine, October 2011

Superb collection - serves as a reminder of how few truly great pieces there have been on Spector. ****
--Mojo magazine, November 2011

Gives you a real overview of the man who created the 'Wall Of Sound' - this is a highly recommended read.
--Blues & Soul magazine, March 2012
