Spector: Genius or Fraud (let's leave out "Murderer" for now): You tout McCartney taking off the "Wall of Sound" from Let It Be. But wasn't the Spector Sound revolutionary? Didn't it take music to a whole new level? God knows the guy made a ton (and we're weighing $100 bills here, not $1s) of money from it. What's wrong with some post-production tinkering? Why is "naked" better? There, I've poked Eno enough, but I'm interested to hear more on why the song (which did pretty well as it was) is improved. Or, do you simply think this is McCartney giving the finger back to Yoko for not letting his name go first on the writing credits?
