Editorial Reviews

Although it was assembled quickly in 1963 to take advantage of the chart success of its eponymous title anthem, the Crystals' second album is a near-perfect summation of this seminal girl group's effortless appeal and the surging majesty of Spector's production genius. Between the group's winsome vocals, the massed muscle of Spector's legendary studio band the Wrecking Crew, and the stellar songwriting of such Brill Building pros as Carole King, Gerry Goffin, Barry Mann, Cynthia Weil and Doc Pomus, He's A Rebel is one of the most beloved items in the Philles Records catalogue.

While most listeners didn t know it at the time, the Gene Pitney-penned "He's A Rebel" was actually recorded by Darlene Love and her studio group the Blossoms, and released under the Crystals' name. Love also takes the lead on the effervescent hit "He's Sure the Boy I Love." Under any name, however, these are among the most thrilling items in the Spector canon.

Along with such memorable early Crystals classics as "Uptown," "There s No Other (Like My Baby)" and "Oh Yeah, Maybe Baby," He's A Rebel also features the controversial Goffin/King composition "He Hit Me (It Felt Like A Kiss)." Originally released as a single in 1962, the song's emotionally raw subject matter scared off radio programmers, and Spector quickly had it withdrawn from release. In the years since, the song has gained near-mythical status, and its inclusion here is a handy reminder of the power of Spector's singular artistry.

Format: MP3 Music
Phil Spector's seminal early-60s catalog was reissued in dribs and drabs of greatest hits packages and hard-to-find UK vinyl LPs throughout the `70s and `80s, but it wasn't until 1991's Back to Mono that the vault riches began really seeing digital light. With Sony's Legacy division having obtained reissue rights, 2011 saw the introduction of comprehensive anthologies on the Ronettes, Crystals and Darlene Love, and in October, six original Philles albums were reissue in the CD box set Phil Spector Presents the Philles Album Collection. In addition to three albums from the Crystals, one each by Bob B. Soxx & the Blue Jeans and the Ronettes, and a period hits collection, the box introduced a disc full of the instrumental B-sides Spector used to pad his singles releases.

For those uninterested in the full box (which, to be fair, repeats tracks among the three Crystals entries, as well as the hits collection), the individual albums have now been released separately as digital downloads. The six original albums are:

* PHLP-4000: The Crystals - Twist Uptown
* PHLP-4001: The Crystals - He's a Rebel
* PHLP-4002: Bob B. Soxx and the Blue Jeans - Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah
* PHLP-4003: The Crystals - Sing the Greatest Hits, Vol.
