✨✧ VariousPhil's Spectre 2 – Another Wall Of Soundalikes ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... On April 1, 2016
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then during the 60s, Phil Spector was one heavily-flattered guy! As this second installment in the Phil's Spectre series shows, the Spector "wall of sound" technique was so popular in 60s pop that it was often copied in a range of genres, on a range of labels, by a range of producers that included Alan Lorber, Smokey Robinson, Jerry Fuller, Abner Specter, Al Kooper, Jack Nitzsche, and many others. The collection nicely dips into a variety of rock, pop, vocal, and soul tunes from the mid 60s – all of which show a marked Spector influence – and which together make for a really gorgeous batch of well-crafted 60s tunes, whether or not you even care about the Phil Spector connection! The package also includes a song-by-song set of notes – often with commentary by the original producer – and a list of 24 titles that includes "Don't You Be Ashamed" by Joe South, "Break Down & Cry" by Kane & Abel, "Gee What A Boy" by The Vontastics, "One Block From Heaven" by Mary Wells, "Nite Owl" by The Righteous Brothers, "I Do" by The Beach Boys, "Be My Man" by Suzy Wallis, "Bring It All Down" by The Satisfactions, "No Room To Cry" by Dobie Gray, and "Dreamin Of You" by noreen Cocoran.

PersuasionsWe Came To Play (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Fever Dream, 1971. New Copy ... $12.99
A beautiful group soul vocals effort from the Persuasions in the early 70s – working in a throwback acapella mode, but still with a fresh feel – thanks to a hip dawn of the 70s sound, and a stripped-down feel that you'd probably have never gotten back in the day! It's amazing how fresh it sounds, even today – each individual voice captured with crystal clarity, and strong genuine emotion – with an honest and real sound that's not overly polished. Wonderful! Titles include "Chain Gang", "Walk On The Wild Side", "Gypsy Woman", "Another Night With The Boys", "Let It Be", "Don't It Make You Want To Go Home", and "The Sun". This CD version is loaded with bonus tracks many in more of gospel mode, including "I Could Never Love Another (After Loving You)", "People Get Ready", "When I Leave These Prison Walls", "Hymn 9", "TA Thompson", "Buffalo Soldier", "When Jesus Comes" and more. 20 tracks in all!
