Thank you.

I listened to a number what was available on line. The work I heard
(from about 1970) is an example of the academic electronic music
studio continuing to impinge on the pop industry. The precursors for
the speed change, backwards and four channel would include Geoff
Emerick http://www.prosoundweb.com/recording/books/berklee/geoff.php
(a fine source of information), and for head echo, of course, Phil
Spector http://www.geocities.com/spectropop/hspector1.html
and Back to Mono
http://www.geocities.com/spectropop/hspector2.html
and the 1962 productions of:
Philles 106 Crystals
He's a Rebel (Pitney)
I Love You Eddie (Spector-Hunter)

Philles 107 Bob B. Soxx and the Blue Jeans
Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah (Gilbert-Wrubel)
Flip & Nitty (Phil Spector)

Philles 108 Alley Cats
Puddin'n'Tain (Caufield-Pipkin-Willis)
Feel So Good (Caufield-Pipkin)
(B side producer: Lou Adler)

Philles 109 (109X) Crystals
He's Sure the Boy I Love (Mann-Weil)
Walkin' Along (La-La-La) (Phil Spector)

With regards to "[S]low speed", Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah is revelatory!

If it comes out of a loudspeaker, that's fine by me,

Ol' Stocky hisself was at 5 channels with Gesang (1956)

although the picture is of his working on Kontakte.
