I just picked it up. Taped most of it off my sister 10 years ago when she first got it. Now from amazon w/ shipping it's like 18 bucks. AMAZING.

Been listening to this all night. Such an amazing collection. Every time I listen, I swear, I find something new that I love. Was just intoxicated by The Ronettes' Born to Be Together.

This collection is amazing. I don't understand why all these ILM fuckers aren't all over it.

the bass on this is MENTAL quiet innit? i mean i know it's the 60s and it's mono and shiz but still. try turning the bass up you get almost nothing on say Da Do Ron Ron.

this box sounds fine to my ears, but was wondering if the more recent philles box set was an improvement? at this point, the back to mono thing is 20 years old? older?

i copied this set from a friend in college and it just sat around my house for years before I actually gave it my time. wow, did it blow my mind! every song is like a universe unto itself.

There's no space for bass in the mix. Too full of universe.

back to mono released in 1991 i think. funny: the price of this thing dropped to like $5 new when spector was up on murder charges. when he went to jail, it was out of print and worth a bundle. now i guess it's been superseded by other collections. would probably buy a _complete_ philles set but i guess i have most of that stuff on boots. honestly a lot of the b-sides are forgettable instruments. the more i think about this guy he's kind of a one-trick pony but what a great trick.

they are expensive on amazon, but if you read the descriptions, they are almost all mint condition, shrink-wrapped in original case
