If I had Ellie Greenwich, Doc Pomus to write me some songs, and Carole Kaye, Tony Tedseco, Hal Blaine, Barney Kessel, and Leon Russell to play those songs, and Darlene Love, and Ronnie Spector to sing those songs, I am pretty sure I could churn out dozens of all-time classic songs.

Because I actually wouldn’t be doing anything.  So what did Phil Spector ever do?

It seems like every couple years there is some documentary out about great session musicians or vocalists who never made it, or famous singers who worked behind the scenes for years before finally stepping into the spotlight. 

What they all have in common is they were dicked over by Phil Spector.  Sonny and Cher.  Glen Campbell.  Carole King.  Neil Diamond. 

Instead of being revered as a producer, isn’t he actually sort of the single most damaging person to rock and roll there’s ever been?  How many great songs were we robbed of hearing because Spector was such a dick?  Plus, he literally shot someone.  Why is this guy in the rock and roll hall of fame?

THAT.

The guy is a convicted murder, period.

It just popped into my head that I once was drinking on a Saturday afternoon at a bar with a jukebox and the jukebox had Television's "Marquee Moon" in it. I put that song on 5 times in a row (the max I could) and then after finishing my beer... I left.

I wonder if I caused anyone to do something irrational that day?

IDK but you've just shot to the top of the list of folks I'd go drinking with. :)

I was listening to Joan Jett's interview with Marc Maron yesterday and her business/music partner, Kenny Laguna, said Spector was a weird, bad dude and he probably should have been in prison a long time before because he's sure he did loooooooooots of bad stuff and got away with it.

i am a life-long Macca fan, and I am surely in the minority of Macca fans who absolutely loves the 1971 Wings album "Wild Life", surely his most unconventional, if not most experimental, album in the Macca's catalog (but surely one of my all time fave Macca albums). The Macca albums have gotten the "deluxe" release over the years--2010's Band On the Run deluxe release was superb, and I treasure it

Now comes the long-awaited Wild Life deluxe release, as well as the Red Rose Speedway deluxe release.... coming in early December (just in time for the Christmas shopping season, of course)

But... I was kinda shocked when I found out the details:

"Wings Wild Life" is being reissued as a 3CD/1DVD affair, which sounds absolutely fantastic, until I found out the purchase price: $149!!!!! Are you kidding me?

"Red Rose Speedway" is being reissued as a 4CD/2DVD affair, for a cool $199

And you can also buy a super-deluxe package, containing all of that PLUS a live CD of the Wings European tour of 1972 for a cool $399. Wow Just wow.

I'd love to get all that, but seriously, at that price? C'mon already.

To put in perspective, I think I bought the Band on the Run 2CD/1DVD deluxe release for $23 or something like it.

Each of the previous releases has had a super-deluxe version, with similar crazy price tags, in addition to the more normally priced version.  These will as well.  Ask and ye shall receive:

https://shop.paulmccartney.com/us_en/red-rose-speedway-2cd-digipack.html

I hadn't heard that these were coming out.  Happy to hear it.  More for Red Rose than for Wild Life.

While we're on the topic of crazy super-fan releases.  I bought the insane $150 super-deluxe Sgt. Pepper anniversary/remix last year and I swore I'd never do that again.  I mean, sure, it's cool to have three discs of wacky early takes and outtakes, and the packaging and book are very posh, but will I listen to them more than once?  I haven't yet.  And the posh book is still in the shrink wrap.

But, with the White Album anniversary/remix on the horizon I find myself staring longingly at that $125 multi-multi-disc set.  What is wrong with me?  Get your hands out of my wallet Ringo!

phil spector held the stone's hostage at gunpoint in his studio.  if i remember that right.  i mean, the guy must be pretty good at something if all the bands would brave his antics to work with him.  i picked up a phil spector double disc the other day.  lots of good songs
