Tearing Down the Wall of Sound

The Rise and Fall of Phil Spector

Audiobook on MP3 CD - 2007
Rate this:
Phil Spector, born in the Bronx in 1940, grew up an outsider despised by his peers. Yet after his family moved to California, he learned everything he could about music, formed a band, and had a number-one hit with "To know him is to love him.' He quickly became the top producer of early rock and roll, originator of such girl groups as the Ronettes, a millionaire by twenty-one, owner of his own lable by twenty-two. Hit followed hit, and for all of them he used a new technique called the "wall of sound." But the reign of the boy-man who owned pop culture seemed doomed by the "British Invasion, " and he spiraled into paranoid isolation and peculiar behavior. Though he seemed to improve for a time, even returning to the recording studio to work, it didn't last, and in 2003, the actress Lana Clarkson was found at his home, dead by gunshot.
