Her Majesty’s Wall of Sound

Here are some entertaining British attempts to emulate Phil Spector’s production techniques.

1960s: The Walker Brothers, “The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore”

1960s: Marianne Faithfull, “Is This What I Get for Loving You?”

1970s: Wizzard, “See My Baby Jive”

2000s: The Pipettes, “Because It’s Not Love (But It’s Still a Feeling)”

And one of Spector’s tracks with Starsailor from a few years ago, “Silence Is Easy”
