“Phil Spector’s classic girl-group singles, with their Wall of Sound arrangements, naïve voices and three-minute storytelling, have been thoroughly anthologized. But were there worthwhile tracks tucked onto the albums on his label, called Philles? This well-annotated set presents the evidence with the first six complete Philles albums: three Crystals albums (two include nine of the same tracks), albums by Bobb B. Soxx and the Blue Jeans and the Ronettes, an anthology album and “Phil’s Flipsides,” a compilation of B-side instrumentals by Mr. Spector’s Wall of Sound Orchestra.”
Ever since a 17-year-old Spector produced his own composition, “To Know Him Is To Love Him,” for the Teddy Bears in 1958, record production has never been the same. This 34-song collection is arranged chronologically (1958-1969) and revisits Spector’s peak as a hit maker. If this is not enough Spector for you, then get the 87-track Phil Spector Presents the Philles Albums Collection, a 7-CD box that includes all six 1962-64 albums from the Philles label, which until now had never been released in its entirety on CD.

There have been many collections of producer Phil Spector’s vintage work, always focusing on the same three dozen tracks. Here, finally, is the rest of the story: Six original albums as released on his Philles label from 1962 to ’64, plus a newly created disc of B-sides. Collectors will rejoice, as few of these were ever on albums, let alone CDs.
