Yes, the Phil Spector feature was added yesterday, Cathy. My own contribution to get fresh music input retstarted. It'll be there for a few weeks, until something else comes up/is suggested/offered.

The Dion track is one of my favourites.

Do you think any Fury tracks have a hint of Spector to them? I've thought in the past that Be Mine Tonight has some of that whoomph.

There's quite a long instrumental at the beginning of Dion's song, at first I thought there was a mistake as I hadn't heard that one before, and wondered when he was going to come in with the lyric. I have Runaround Sue as my message alert on my mobile, I like Dion, not sure about "Born To Be With You" tho, will have to listen a few times and let it grow on me.

Yes, thanks for that Babs.

It's a fact - the Stones' Not Fade Away would be over and done with before the meaningful lyrics started in Dion's Born To Be With You. But you certainly get your money's worth from it at 6 minutes 40 seconds!

The interesting thing (I think) is that Dion and Phil Spector put that track together at a point when everyone thought that both of their careers were effectively over.

There's just so much suppressed energy in that song. It's almost as if the power that is such a feature of Phil Spector's work is being held down so hard that it's oozing out through the seams.

And it definitely grows on you.

SORRY - just realised that I missed off one of the star entries, the Cher and Harry Nilsson track, painstakingly ripped from LP. It's there now.
