Storyline

The development of magnetic tape for recording sound opened up creative possibilities for musicians to blend different takes, to merge different instruments that were recorded on different occasions or in different locations, and to record themselves multiple times to create a chorus. The Beatles' "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" and "Revolver" albums and The Beach Boys' song "Good Vibrations" are examples of recordings that make extensive use of the multi-track capabilities of magnetic tape. At around the same time, record producers such as Phil Spector were exploiting the technology - Spector was responsible for recording same instruments and vocalists many times, playing/singing slightly different variations each time, to create his trademark "wall of sound".
