Phil Spector Escapes Prison Walls With Sound

Phil Spector is to release an album from jail.

The legendary music producer - who was jailed last June for 19 years for the murder of actress Lana Clarkson - has created a disc of tracks with wife Rachelle Short, which was put together prior to his sentencing.

Former Playboy model Short said: "I do lead vocals. My husband is so proud of me and I'm so proud of him for withstanding what he's withstanding."

The as-yet-untitled LP is due for release in June.

Earlier this week, Short denied claims Spector - who created the 'Wall of Sound' production technique - lost some of his teeth after being involved in a brawl at the Corcoran prison in California.

She said: "Phil was not assaulted. Absolutely not. Anyone who meets Phil loves him. He's so freaking funny. He's an idol to the other inmates. They look out for him."

A spokesperson for the prison said they had no record of Spector, 70, being involved in any reported altercations.

Earlier this month, Spector launched an appeal against his murder conviction, with his legal team claiming he was denied the right to a fair trial.
