Playlist: The Phil Spector Story

By April 18, 2013

Follow me on:

You know about the troubled and troubling life of the man, but how well do you know his musical legacy? Phil Spector's famous "Wall of Sound" is the key to his fame as the "First Tycoon of Teen," but it didn't get built overnight, and it didn't always pay off, artistically or commercially. This playlist, full of mp3s you can get right here, traces the history of Phil -- from singer to producer, to legend, and to problem. See Phil Spector's musical rise and fall right here.
