Reissue of the legendary Ike & Tina album, consisting of six tracks produced by the studio wizard Phil Spector using his famous wall of sound technique. River Deep-Mountain High was originally recorded in 1966 but released in the USA in 1969 by A&M Records. The title track was the first of five singles and a massive hit in Europe. This was easily the most complex and nuanced of Spector's famous "wall of sound" productions, an album that's an essential part of any comprehensive 60s music collection. Due to Spector's perfectionism, he made Turner sing 'River Deep' over and over for several hours until he felt he had the perfect vocal take. According to the singer: "I must have sung that 500,000 times. I was drenched with sweat. I had to take my shirt off and stand there in my bra to sing."
