Which Spector album or box do you listen to most often?

Postby GoogaMooga » 20 Nov 2020, 04:14

Back to Mono box. At least once a year, A Christmas Gift For You on the 24th and 25th of December, and the rest of the box on NYE, turned up loud.

After that would be whatever comp editions of Ronettes that I fancy, closely followed by Darlene Love and Crystals. RDMH I played a lot in my youth.

The Christmas album gets the most spins from me for sure - a staple at Christmas time at Rorebhoy Towers

My fav Spector set is this one

The Philles album collection is also a must, but I don't play that as much, because no Sonny Charles & the Checkmates.

I don't have any Phil Spector albums with his name on it.

The Ronettes, Darlene Love, yes to those.

there is only one Spector album, the Christmas one, which is great. Most other albums on Philles have filler tracks produced by someone else. The comps are all pretty good going on great, but the singles came first, and even they include things he didn't actually have much or anything to do with, notably by the Righteous Brothers, but also the Ronettes.
I don't count albums he {partially} produced with name artists not on Philles or PSI

No loss at all - and he only produced two or three on that, if memory serves

This would be my secondary answer, stripped of Rayge's specific Spector expertise, which greatly surpasses my own.

I've got the HIp-O Select pf their sole album, two copies even, and it's great. I think it could have been a bit more on that one, but I may be wrong. It all sounded great.
