Editorial Reviews

Made in 1983, 'Da Doo Ron Ron' is an engrossing feature-length documentary chronicling Phil Spector's fascinating career in popular music. It begins with his first hit - as a member of The Teddy Bears, when their smash hit, 'To Know Him Is To Love Him', topped the U.S. charts in 1958. From there it then traces chronologically his music career - from his early productions for the Atlantic label, his heyday days in the Sixties when he introduced the world to his ground-breaking 'Wall Of Sound' on his own Philles label, through to his comeback in the Seventies and the re-launch of his record label. Spector's story is told in a series of fascinating, in-depth interviews with those he knew and worked with over the years, several of whom bring up the darker and ruthless side of his character. They include composers Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller and Jeff Barry , business associates and fellow producers such as Atlantic Records boss Ahmet Ertegun, his former business partner Lester Sill, Sonny Bono, Nino Tempo and 'Bumps' Blackwell, as well as the controversial writer/critic Albert Goldmann. Elsewhere, musicians, engineers and the artists themselves, such as Darlene Love of The Crystals, former wife Ronnie Spector of The Ronettes and The Ramones, recall their experiences, sometimes harrowing, with Spector, both inside and outside the recording studios. These compelling interviews are interspersed throughout with prime examples of Spector's glorious 'Wall of Sound' music - what he called "little symphonies for the kids". They include marvelous footage of The Ronettes, Crystals, The Righteous Brothers and The Ramones performing their hits on TV shows of the time and on film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun little documentary needs better video transfer December 30, 2009
By TeeBee
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This 1983 documentary interviews many of Phil Spector's mentors, sidemen and professional associates, and is eerily prophetic as several describe his erratic behavior and gun-obsession. Before he became a convicted killer, Spector was a great pop producer, but was never anything less than a ruthless, greedy businessman who exploited his artists mercilessly, as Darlene Love, among others, attests. There is a delightful little interlude with Ms. Love lip-synching to her classic Spector Xmas recording of "White Christmas" as she walks along a California beach, among other diverting moments. The interviews with the Ramones, all of whom seem to have detested working with Spector, are classics. However, the color was terribly over-saturated and overall picture quality was not good; this cries out for a professional digital remastering, hence three stars instead of four.
