Re: Phil Spector

Which is why the records he made probably still sound good when you hear
them on those small table top plastic radios (whether it be am or fm),
most of the stuff that's made today where it seems you really need a hi-fi
to be able to listen to it comfortably.  Am I correct in this orcould it
just be my ears?
