Wishin' And Hopin' (Stereo Version)
Label: Mercury Records
With its cavernous production, chiming bells, swelling orchestration and big drums, you'd think this was Phil Spector's finest hour. The thing is, he had nothing to do with this record: Springfield takes Spector's symphonic pop ideas and runs with them. Check out the whole album, especially "24 Hours From Tulsa" and "Anyone Who Had a Heart."
