In my ongoing quest to purchase every worthy song ever made (
), I now turn my attention to the Wall of Sound. Or just kick ass girl groups. I've kind of avoided this area of rock because a lot of it sounds samey to me and I don't care much for some of the doo wop stuff around the same period. But every time I hear "Be My Baby" by the Ronettes I'm completely transfixed (and I also dig "Walking in the Sand" by the Shangra-las.)
I've been aware of the "Back to Mono" set from Phil Spector. I know there are some incredible songs on it, but I never could justify the price, especially with a full disc of Christmas songs (don't care for that stuff).
Anyway, do you know of any good various artists discs you are satisfied with... should I just suck it up and get that Spector set?
