From 1960 to 1965, Spector produced more than twenty-five Top 40 singles for various artists, but following sporadic work in the 1970s, he remained largely inactive. In the 2000s, Spector became the subject of two trials for murder and a second-degree conviction. He is serving a prison sentence of 19 years to life and will be 88 years old before becoming eligible for parole.[5] Spector began his career in 1958 as the producer and co-founder of the Teddy Bears, performing on guitar and vocals. At the height of his career, he was a pioneer of the 1960s girl-group sound, writing, co-writing, or producing for artists such as the Ronettes and the Crystals; later the Beatles, Leonard Cohen, Dion DiMucci, and the Ramones. Spector is often called the first auteur among musical artists for acting not only as a producer, but also the creative director, writing or choosing the material, supervising the arrangements, conducting the vocalists and session musicians, and masterminding all phases of the recording process. He helped pave the way for various music genres, with numerous artists later citing his work as a major influence. The 1965 song "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'", produced and co-written by Spector for the Righteous Brothers, is listed by BMI as the song with the most US airplay in the 20th century.[6] For co-producing George Harrison's Concert for Bangladesh (1971), Spector earned the Grammy Award for Album of the Year. In 1989, Spector was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as a nonperformer. In 1997, he was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.[7] Rolling Stone magazine ranked him #63 on their 2004 list of the "Greatest Artists of All Time".[8][9] In their list of "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time", they included the Spector-produced Presenting the Fabulous Ronettes (1964),[10] A Christmas Gift for You (1963),[11] and Back to Mono (1991).[12] In 2008, The Washington Times named Spector the second greatest record producer in music history ------------------- les mer på Wikipedia.....

LP 393 - Jim Reeves - 1983 UK Vinyl; NM - Cover; NM ------------------------ Birth name James Travis Reeves Also known as Gentleman Jim Born August 20, 1923 Galloway, Texas, U.S. Died July 31, 1964 (aged 40) Davidson County, Tennessee, U.S. Genres Country, Nashville sound, Gospel, Blues, Western Swing Occupation(s) Singer-songwriter, musician Years active 1948–1964 ----------- James Travis "Jim" Reeves (August 20, 1923 – July 31, 1964) was an American country and popular music singer-songwriter. With records charting from the 1950s to the 1980s, he became well known as a practitioner of the Nashville sound (a mixture of older country-style music with elements of popular music). Known as "Gentleman Jim", his songs continued to chart for years after his death. Reeves died in the crash of a private airplane. He is a member of both the Country Music and Texas Country Music Halls of Fame. ----------- Early 1960s and international fame Reeves scored his greatest success with the Joe Allison composition "He'll Have to Go",[3] a great success on both the popular and country music charts, which earned him a platinum record. Released during late 1959, it scored number one on Billboard magazine's Hot Country Songs chart on February 8, 1960, which it scored for 14 weeks consecutive. Country music historian Bill Malone noted that while it was in many ways a conventional country song, its arrangement and the vocal chorus "put this recording in the country pop vein". In addition, Malone lauded Reeves' vocal styling—lowered to "its natural resonant level" to project the "caressing style that became famous"—as why "many people refer to him as the singer with the velvet voice."[4] In 1963, he released his well proclaimed "Twelve Songs of Christmas" album, which had the well known songs "C.H.R.I.S.T.M.A.S" and "An Old Christmas Card". During 1975, RCA producer Chet Atkins told interviewer Wayne Forsythe, "Jim wanted to be a tenor but I wanted him to be a baritone... I was right, of course. After he changed his voice to that smooth deeper sound, he was immensely popular."[5] Reeves' international popularity during the 1960s, however, at times surpassed his popularity in the United States, helping to give country music a worldwide market for the first time. ------------ Albums Year Album Chart positions US Country US NOR 1956 Jim Reeves Sings — — — Singing Down the Lane — — — Bimbo — — — 1957 Jim Reeves — — — 1958 Girls I Have Known — — 20 God Be with You — — 4 1959 Songs to Warm the Heart — — 18 1960 According to My Heart — — 16 The Intimate — — 10 He'll Have to Go — 18 15 1961 Tall Tales and Short Tempers — — — Talkin' to Your Heart — — — 1962 Country Side — — 8 A Touch of Velvet — 97 8 We Thank Thee — — 12 1963 Gentleman Jim — — 2 International 18 — 5 Good 'n' Country 13 — 7 Twelve Songs of Christmas — 15 3 1964 Kimberley Jim — — 11 Moonlight and Roses 1 30 2 The Best 1 9 1 Have I Told You Lately 5 — 8 1965 The Jim Reeves Way 2 45 5 Up Through the Years 1 — 10 The Best 2 4 100 7 1966 Distant Drums 1 21 2 Yours Sincerely 3 — 15 1967 Blue Side of Lonesome 3 185 15 My Cathedral 39 — — 1968 A Touch of Sadness 3 — — Jim Reeves on Stage 5 — — 1969 Jim Reeves and Some Friends 18 — — The Best 3 12 — — 1971 Jim Reeves Writes You a Record 34 — — Something Special 13 — — Young & Country - — — 1972 My Friend 18 — — Missing You 9 — — 1973 Am I That Easy to Forget? 11 — — Great Moments with Jim Reeves 32 — — 1974 I'd Fight the World 13 — — 1975 The Best of Jim Reeves Sacred Songs 37 — — Songs of Love 34 — — 1976 I Love You Because 24 — — A Legendary Performer 25 — — 1977 It's Nothin' to Me 32 — — 1978 Jim Reeves 50 — — Nashville — — — 1979 The Best 4 — — — Don't Let Me Cross Over 23 — — 1980 There's Always Me 56 — — 1981 Greatest Hits (with Patsy Cline) 8 — — 1982 Remembering Patsy Cline & Jim Reeves — — — 1983 The Jim Reeves Medley 65 — — 1985 Collector's Series — — — 1995 The Essential Jim Reeves — — — 1997 Golden Memories — — — 1998 All Time Gospel Favorites — — — 1999 Super Hits — — — Radio Days — — — "—" denotes the album failed to chart or not released ------------ les mer på Wikipedia...
