Boxed Set Brings Together Spector’s First Six Albums

In the early 1960s, Phil Spector was the king of teenage music, releasing his “little symphonies for the kids” and seeing them go to the top of the charts.

Many of those “little symphonies” are now rock ‘n’ roll classics — “He’s A Rebel,” “Be My Baby,” “Why Do Lovers Break Each Others Hearts?” and “(Today I Met) The Boy I’m Gonna Marry,” to name just a few.

While rightfully thought of as singles, those songs also were packed into albums, discs that are being reissued for the first time on CD in “Phil Spector Presents The Philles Album Collection,” a seven-disc set coming Monday that presents the first six original albums from Spector’s label issued from 1962 to 1964.
