TEARING DOWN THE WALL OF SOUND The Rise and Fall of Phil Spector

by | Read by Ray Porter

Biography & Memoir • 18 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

There’s a rhythm in the life of music producer Phil Spector, the man who created the vaunted “wall of sound” and birthed dozens of songs, such as the most played radio song of all time, “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin.” His story is spectacularly captured in Ray Porter’s narration of this detailed biography. Brown’s meticulous research answers many of the questions about Spector, whose spotted life includes being tried for the shooting of an actress in his home. Porter delivers this portrait in an authoritative anchorman’s voice, making the more bizarre and chilling passages even more so. Spector admits to being mentally ill and to having threatened or carried out violence in many of his relationships. His life rises and falls as dramatically as his music.
