I don't know if this is true all over the country or just in Northern New Jersey but Costco is selling the Phil Spector 4-CD "Back to Mono" box for $14.69! All the hits, the complete Christmas album, and of course the sublime "River Deep, Mountain High."
Don't you need to have a membership to buy there, though? That's a set I'd be interested in checking out.
Did anyone see Phil Spector's picture some time ago in the paper? MAN, that is some freaky hair he gots going on there!!! From the "wall of sound" to the "mountain of hair" Makes Don King's hair look almost normal!!! Ain't no hair high enough, ain't no pile wide enough. Maybe he should get a section in cables/wires, it looks like he stuck his fingers in the wall outlet, BAM, hair ball, he looks "wired"!!!
You forgot to mention the "Back to Mono" badge. A fabulous extra.
Wes I'll tell you this is such a "fetish" object for me that I haven't even slit the shrink-wrap yet; I've just been staring at the box anticipating its pleasures. I'm not proud just, uh, nuts.
