You’ve heard of the Wall of Sound?
Now get ready for the Wall of Love. Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Darlene Love compares the work of producer Steven Van Zandt on her new album “Introducing Darlene Love” to the classic records she made with famed Wall of Sound producer Phil Spector more than 50 years ago.
“Phil Spector is a genius because it took a genius to do what Phil Spector did in the ’60s, but what he did with the Wall of Sounds, he had everything in there but you could not define what it was,” Love said. “If you did not have a strong enough voice, it would overpower you.

Say, where was that music video shot that’s currently showing on Darlene Love’s site? And can you name all the celebrities who ride in her car or get passed by or dance on the beach?

Thanks, and thanks so much for doing this.
