A bit rambling, long and sometimes repetitive, this is a good book about weird Phil Spector, a gun-totin', wig-sporting yet a most talented music producer from the 1960s (George Martin and possibly Paul Rothchild might compete). This book would have been better if it'd had an index, so you could chase down your particular interests, although its order is pretty much chronological. It's a bit unreliable in places, such as when saying about the last John Lennon album that Spector produced, 'Rock n Roll': "It was quickly forgotten."Not so. Despite being a cover of a hit song from the mid-60s, 'Stand by Me' was huge on the airwaves when it came out, and the album still stands as one of Lennon's most artistically successful releases after The Beatles. Still, for a look at one of the guys who made 1960s pop music what it turned out to be -- the most prolific and innovative decade of the 20th century -- this is well worth reading.
