To this day the Phil Spector Back to Mono box set of CDs, is one of my prized possessions. From the opening bars of “To know him is to love him” you just know that you are listening to something very special. Check this one out:
… and then many years later after living as a recluse and out of the public eye, the guy shoots and kills Lana Clarkson, wears the craziest wig you could imagine at the murder trial and ends up in prison. You couldn’t make this sort of story up. Mick Brown (the author of this book) interviewed Phil shortly before he was arrested in what was his first major interview in 25 years (Phil, not Mick). There was even talk before the downfall of a comeback. All of this put Mick Rock in an excellent position to write this book and write it he did.
