The Agony and the Ecstasy of Phil Spector

The Agony and the Ecstasy of Phil Spector

In a career stretching back to his first hit in 1958, To Know Him Is To Love Him, Phil Spector has never given a substantial broadcast interview – until now.

Filmed in Spector's own home – literally his castle – before the piano he bought with John Lennon to play in the promotional film for Imagine, he discusses his relationship with music greats from the girl groups of the Sixties through to The Beatles and Tina Turner.

He also talks about his troubled personal life, his sense of being hounded and the anger and rage which helped him to develop his art, long before it was recognised as anything other than mere pop music.
