The Doopies were the brainchild of Japanese eccentic experimentalist Yann Tomita, who used to be in the group Melon. The record all over the place, full of wild samples and chipmunk like female vocals. It might be a bit much for the pop purists on the list, but for those with adventurous taste, it's well worth checking out. The title track is comprised of samples from the theme's of "I Love Lucy" and "I Dream Of Jeannie." "Love Songs Is A Very Razor Bladed Thing" splices countless snippets of love songs, before settling into a monologue about love songs over a loop of the drums from the Yardbirds "For Your Love." Fun, wild stuff. --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: For Carol Kaye: sessions with Spector and Wilson Received: 10/08/99 12:50 am From: Pacific Ocean Bluto, wuxxxxxet.se To: Spectropop List, spectxxxxxities.com Carol Kaye, How much of that famous Wall Of Sound could you, as a musician sitting in the recording room, hear? You obviously all had to focus on your individual parts. I read somewhere that Brian sometimes added echo, reverb, compression and such things while you guys were playing. Did Spector do that too, or was all that stuff added after the session musicians had left the building? I guess what I'm asking is how much the producers did themselves without interacting with the musicians. Also (and this was discussed about six months ago but I've lost that digest), how *loud* were these sessions, particularly with Spector? Obviously, his music sounds the best if you crank your stereo up to 11, and what you get is an enormous, almost angry, wall of noise. Were his sessions louder (decibel-wise) than other producers'?

I have never heard whether Phil produced a version of I Can Her Music, but probably not.

A couple of years ago I was lucky enough to find some wonderful rare tapes of Phil working in the studio, called "The Spector Anthology". The sound is very, very good. 8 out of 10, and stereo (!) most of the time. I carefully transferred the tapes to cdr to preserve them forever because they are one of my most valued possesions as far as rare music is concerned?Et's more than 4 hours of Phil in the studio recording with The Ronettes, Tina, etc?E Lots of outtakes, backing tracks, vocal dubs, false starts, interesting chatter among Phil in the booth and the musicians?Ea dream for a Phil Spector fan. It's like you were in the booth with him. It's great to listen to the man "singing" the riffs to the musicians to instruct them how to play. For instance, in River Deep Mountain High you can hear how he interrupts the takes several times to instruct (Carol?) about how fast he wants the opening bass line to be played. "I want it like that: dA-dadA-dadA-dadA-dadA!" This stuff ranks up right there with the incredible Beatles or Beach Boys Unsurpassed Masters series (on the BB series you can actually hear Brian talking to Carol, btw). Here's the mouthwatering set list. take care, Francesc BE MY BABY takes 14-33 lead vocal take lead and backing vocal take BABY I LOVE YOU takes 1-12 lead vocal take WALKING IN THE RAIN takes 1-7 lead vocal take vocal track only WHY CAN'T THEY LET US FALL IN LOVE takes 1-29 HEARTBREAKER take 1 vocal take CHICO'S GIRL take 1 take 2- vocal take stereo take 2- vocal take mono PHIL'S POLKA takes 6-8 UPTOWN vocal takes on take 16 takes 1-24 RUDOLF THE RED NOSED REINDEER takes 1-17 SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN takes 1-6 HOLD ME TIGHT takes 11-31 YOU'VE LOST THAT LOVIN' FEELIN' takes 38-39 SONNY!!!
