As we’re entering 2015 you’ll quickly notice that I’ve given Cue Castanets a graphic overhaul.
I quite liked the retro design of the Typo theme I started out with. But I thought a change to something more user friendly was called for due to a combination of a growing number of daily visitors & views and the fact that the blog continues to evolve content-wise.
I can see that quite a few visitors find their way here through search engines so I decided on this different theme, Twenty Fourteen. It has some good features for giving first-time visitors a quick and easy overview of past posts and categories. I hope you like the new look.
Ok, with that out of the way, let’s start off the new year with some more Spector-related content.
Below you’ll find a list of my 15 all-time favorite Spector productions – and brace yourselves.
No Be my Baby, River Deep Mountain High or Lovin’ Feeling! To my ears, those songs have been played so much to death that I always find myself going back to some of the more overlooked songs.
