The Lucy in London Acetate

My oh my, new things have surfaced in Spector-land.

One of my friends just alerted me today about an interesting entry on the fab PUREPOP blog, – it’s a place I’ve checked out from time to time for a fix of great, overlooked 60s pop. But I hadn’t noticed this latest entry.

PUREPOP blogger Robin Wills has unearthed a bonafide super-rarity that I doubt any other Spector fans knew the existence of; a sparse demo recording of the ‘Lucy in London’ theme!

In itself, ‘Lucy in London’ is one of the most obscure Spector productions – and unreleased to boot! So Robin has got a real treasure on his hands here finding a demo version. Nice of him to share a short edit so we can hear it.

For the full low-down on all this, head over to PUREPOP and listen to Phil Spector singing about swingin’ London on this sparse run through of the theme song. And if you haven’t heard the eventual full-blown 1966 production already, check out the youtube vid as well. It’s a shame it didn’t come out officially.

Let’s cross our fingers we’ll get to hear more material like this through the coming years!
