Phil Spector, a flawed man and now a convicted criminal, was arguably one of the foremost producers of pop music in his time. His songwriting contributions, mastery of production and arrangement to create entirely new listening experiences cannot be understated. There is no doubt that the music he created deserves a proper packaging including remastered and stereo versions of his classic hits with all the artists that worked with him.

Is this now an impossibility due to his fallen status? Will his music ever get the well-deserved treatment it should have?

I dont think its out of the question.  A nice two disc entry to the Essential series is a pretty good collection, and Im pretty sure it was released after his legal issues.

Any opinions posted by me regarding the music of The Beach Boys, and their members, is in no way a show of disrespect towards any member of The Beach Boys, past or present.

Perhaps I put too much faith in atmosphere

I hope there'll be one. It's good to separate Spector the convicted murderer from Spector the genius producer. Although maybe those events have helped to make him visible to people who might have never heard of him otherwise.  

Gesualdo killed his first wife and her lover and his extraordinary music is regularly heard on the radio and in concerts.

I do find it difficult to reconcile "Spector" and "stereo". It's not a Brian thing-----Spector chose mono as his vehicle.

Whatever...
