When The Wall Of Sound Met The New York Under Ground: The Ramones, Phil Spector And End Of The Century - A Single Notes Book--44 pages of stuff concerning this what appeared to be cosmic but turned out less than stellar meeting between the Two Walls of Sound.
From the Rhino Newsletter:
"When the Wall of Sound Met the New York Underground: The Ramones, Phil Spector and End of the Century" explores the collaboration album between two rock legends. New York punk trendsetters Ramones had spent years cranking out influential albums that failed to set the charts on fire, so it was decided they should team with legendary ‘60s producer Phil Spector to make that elusive hit album that would take them to the top. But like most thing in the world of the Ramones, things didn’t quite work out the way they planned. Guns, drugs, affairs, death, mannequins and madness ensued as the band attempted to fuse their style with the work of an esteemed madman. All the while the band was shooting the Roger Corman b-movie Rock ‘n’ Roll High School and burning the candle at both ends. The result is the misunderstood classic, END OF THE CENTURY. Penned by "On the Road with the Ramones" author and Streetwalkin’ Cheetahs frontman Frank Meyer, "When the Wall of Sound Met the New York Underground" unearths the most fascinating story in the Ramones saga.
