Spector could have received a year-to-life sentence with another ten years added automatically since the crime involved a gun if convicted. On September 26, at pm PST, the jury stated that it could not reach a verdict.
The jurors announced a deadlock of ten for guilty and two for not guilty. Judge Fidler then declared a mistrial in the murder case against Phil Spector. The judge and lawyers met on October 3, , to discuss future proceedings. Sandi Gibbons, the spokeperson for the District Attorney's office, confirmed that preparations were being made to retry Spector immediately.
In early December , it was announced that San Francisco lawyer Doron Weinberg had agreed to serve as Spector's attorney and had proposed that the retrial begin in September The only remaining member of Spector's defense team is Christopher Plourd, who Weinberg told Superior Court Judge Larry Paul Fidler will not be available to resume the case until the autumn of All of the remaining members of Spector's previous defense team have either resigned or were dismissed after the mistrial.
Spector also claimed that Shapiro inadequately prepared the trial and may have been responsible for the prosecution filing charges in the first place. On April 11, , Spector lost another battle in his bid to disqualify the judge presiding at his murder retrial. Superior Court Judge Larry Fidler, who presided over Spector's mistrial, has been accused by the defense as showing a bias against Spector.
A state appellate panel refused to order the appointment of a neutral judge to determine whether Judge Fidler should be removed from the retrial of the case. Fidler previously refused to remove himself from the retrial. Jury selection in the murder retrial began on October 20, , [ 39 ] with Judge Fidler again presiding.
On February 19, , the trial visited Spector's home for an hour, where the jury inspected the scene and submitted 9 questions to the judge. The case went to the jury March 27, Spector was married to Veronica "Ronnie" Bennett , former lead singer of The Ronettes , a girl group that he had managed and produced, from to They adopted three children:.

Guitar , piano. King Gene Pitney Bob B. Spector's final signing to Philles was the husband-and-wife team of Ike and Tina Turner in Spector considered their recording of River Deep — Mountain High his best work,  but it failed to go any higher than number 88 in the United States. The single, which actually featured Tina but not Ike, was more successful in Britain , reaching number 3.
Spector subsequently lost enthusiasm for his label and the recording industry. Already something of a recluse , he withdrew temporarily from the public eye, marrying Veronica "Ronnie" Bennett , lead singer of the Ronettes, in In , Spector emerged briefly for a cameo as himself in an episode of I Dream of Jeannie and as a drug dealer in the film Easy Rider While producing John Lennon 's hit solo single " Instant Karma!
He went to work, using many of his production techniques, making significant changes to the arrangements and sound of some songs. A third single from the sessions, " Get Back ", an international number 1 issued in , shortly after the original Get Back recording sessions, was also put together without Spector's participation.
Spector's overdubbing of "The Long and Winding Road" infuriated its composer, Paul McCartney , especially since the work was allegedly completed without his knowledge and without any opportunity for him to assess the results. For Harrison's multiplatinum album All Things Must Pass number 1, , Spector provided a cathedral-like sonic ambience, complete with ornate orchestrations and gospel-like choirs. He held the post for only a year, but during that time he co-produced the single " Power to the People " with John Lennon number 11 , as well as Lennon's chart-topping album, Imagine.
The album's title track hit number 3. The album later won the "Album of the Year" award at the Grammys. Despite being recorded live, Spector used up to 44 microphones simultaneously to create his trademark Wall of Sound. Similar to the unusual pattern of success that Spector's A Christmas Gift for You from Philles Records experienced, "Happy Xmas War Is Over " also stalled in sales upon its initial release, only later to become a fixture on radio station playlists around Christmas.
In , Spector participated in the recording sessions for what would be Lennon's Rock 'n' Roll album number 6. He established the Warner-Spector label with Warner Bros.
A similar relationship with Britain's Polydor Records led to the formation of the Phil Spector International label in When the Cher and Keno singles the latter's recordings were only issued in Germany foundered on the charts, Spector released Dion DiMucci 's Born to Be with You to little commercial fanfare in ; largely produced and recorded by Spector in , it was subsequently disowned by the singer.
In the s and s, the album enjoyed a resurgence among the indie rock cognoscenti. Finally, he released an American compilation of his Philles recordings in , which put most of the better-known Spector hits back into circulation after many years. As the s progressed, Spector became increasingly reclusive. The most probable and significant reason for his withdrawal, according to biographer Dave Thompson , was that in he was seriously injured when he was thrown through the windshield of his car in a crash in Hollywood.
He was admitted to the UCLA Medical Center on the night of March 31, , suffering serious head injuries that required several hours of surgery, with over stitches to his face and more than to the back of his head. Spector began to reemerge later in the decade, producing and co-writing a controversial album by Leonard Cohen , entitled Death of a Ladies' Man. This angered many devout Cohen fans who preferred his stark acoustic sound to the orchestral and choral wall of sound that the album contains.
The recording was fraught with difficulty. After Cohen had laid down practice vocal tracks, Spector mixed the album in studio sessions, rather than allowing Cohen to take a role in the mixing, as Cohen had previously done. Spector also produced the much-publicized Ramones album End of the Century in As with his work with Leonard Cohen, End of the Century received criticism from Ramones fans who were angered over its radio-friendly sound.
For the harder stuff, it didn't work as well. Rumors circulated for years that Spector had threatened members of the Ramones with a gun during the sessions.
Dee Dee Ramone claimed that Spector once pulled a gun on him when he tried to leave a session. He never held us hostage.
We could have left at any time". Spector remained inactive throughout most of the s, s, and early s. In early , shortly after the death of John Lennon, he temporarily re-emerged to co-produce Yoko Ono's Season of Glass.
He was originally supposed to produce the entire album, but was fired owing to personal and creative differences. One of the two Spector-produced songs on the album, the title track , was a UK top 10 single the other single being "White Dove".
Her body was found slumped in a chair with a single gunshot wound to her mouth with broken teeth scattered over the carpet. Spector produced singer-songwriter Hargo 's track "Crying for John Lennon", which originally appears on Hargo's album In Your Eyes ,  but on a visit to Spector's mansion for an interview for the John Lennon tribute movie Strawberry Fields , Hargo played Spector the song and asked him to produce it.
Spector and former Paul McCartney drummer Graham Ward produced it in the classic Wall of Sound style on nights after his first murder trial. As a result, Spector was given a songwriting credit on the single. The sections from "Be My Baby" are sung by Winehouse, not directly sampled from the mono single. In his eulogy, Spector criticized Tina Turner's autobiography—and its subsequent promotion by Oprah Winfrey—as a "badly written" book that "demonized and vilified Ike".
Spector commented that "Ike made Tina the jewel she was. When I went to see Ike play at the Cinegrill in the 90s It consists of Spector's first screen interview—breaking a long period of media silence. During the conversation, images from the murder court case are juxtaposed with live appearances of his tracks on television programs from the s and s, along with subtitles giving critical interpretations of some of his song production values. While he does not directly try to clear his name, the court case proceedings shown try to give further explanation of the facts surrounding the murder charges leveled against him.
He also speaks about the musical instincts that led him to create some of his most enduring hit records, from "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" to "River Deep, Mountain High", as well as Let It Be , along with criticisms he feels he has had to deal with throughout his life.
The retrial of Spector for murder in the second degree began on October 20, ,  with Judge Fidler again presiding; this time it was not televised.
Spector was once again represented by attorney Jennifer Lee Barringer. Spector's early musical influences included Latin music in general, and Latin percussion in particular.
Spector's trademark during his recording career was the so-called Wall of Sound , a production technique yielding a dense, layered effect that reproduced well on AM radio and jukeboxes. To attain this signature sound, Spector gathered large groups of musicians playing some instruments not generally used for ensemble playing, such as electric and acoustic guitars playing orchestrated parts—often doubling and tripling many instruments playing in unison —for a fuller sound.Jun 27, · VARIOUS ARTISTS - Phil Spector Story - bluegrass.chartgenie.netinfo Music Phil Spector Story Spector, Phil, Wall Of Sound 17 Puddin' N' /5(7).
