Wall of Sound: The 1961-62 Productions focuses closely on some of Spector's earliest work, with hits from proto-girl groups like the Crystals, doo wop from acts like Curtis Lee, and heartbreaking ballads such as "Anyone But You" by Ruth Brown. The 30 tracks in total range from huge hits to lesser-known acts that Spector worked his magic on in his prolific early days in the studio.
