Twist And Shout

In 1961 Legendary producer Phil Spector established his own record label Philles, and a new sound began to ring out of radio speakers across America. The sound Spector created - lush, resonant, and dramatic, blending the sentimental swoon of string sections with the excitement of rock and roll - was so different, so instantly recognizable, it earned it's own name: The Wall of Sound. Through the 1960s, with songs like "Be My Baby," "Then He Kissed Me," "Walking in the Rain," "River Deep, Mountain High", "Spanish Harlem" and "Da Doo Ron Ron," he ruled the pop charts and made artists like Darlene Love, the Crystals and the Ronettes household names. Through the 1960s, songs that rang with Phil Spector's signature studio approach ruled the pop charts. In his heyday, Spector's name was more popularly known than the artists he made famous. He had the Midas touch the pop singles on his own Philles label were as ubiquitous as Motown's and rivaled the popularity of the Beatles. Some 50 years after the Wall of Sound changed music forever, Legacy is pleased to announce the First 2 CD definite cross label collection of this work, THE ESSENTIAL PHIL SPECTOR.
