The album features music from such artists as Billy Joel, Enrico Caruso, Little Richard, Freddie Mercury, Stevie WonderPaul McCartney and Bono.

Spector say: “After portraying one man [Frankie Vallie] for 1500 performances with Jersey Boys, I was haunted by identity fears. Being able to delve into the repertoire of other artists helped quell them. I now feel a sense of fraternity with these artists.”
