Try To Ignore Ike

by thoughtsonthedead

Phil Spector is an overrated one-trick-pony, and also a terrible boyfriend. His wall of sound (note the pedestrian lowercase spelling) makes the studio version of River Deep, Mountain High* clunky and muddy, dragged into greatness through Tina Turner’s performance alone.

The live version has something to it.

*Tina may or may not know the exact name of the song, but it doesn’t matter because she is Tina Turner and can do whatever the hell she wants.
