"The acrobatic voice from Rockville’s ‘62/’63 LP’s. The first includes Town Without Pity; the second sounds expensive”

Booklet features the original Musicor album sleeves and updated liner notes by Pitney authority Roger Dopson.
Superior sound quality throughout.
GENE PITNEY was one of the most prolific and successful international artists of the 1960s, releasing some twenty-five albums (plus a further dozen or so "Greatest Hits” sets) and around thirty-five singles.
In the 1990s, Sequel Records paired up Gene’s original LPs as 2-on-1s, plus bonus tracks and all mastered from first-generation tapes. Pitney himself was delighted with the results. Sadly Gene died in 2006 whilst touring the UK, by which time these 2-on-1s had long been deleted. However, thanks to RPM, these well-regarded compilations are once again available.
Released in November 1964, Gene’s fifth album It Hurts To Be In Love was retitled for the British market as I’m Gonna Be Strong after the single which was then a hit and would peak at No.2 The UK LP also included ‘I’m Gonna Find Myself A Girl’ which had been withdrawn as a single in the US and likewise omitted from It Hurts...
Similarly, when I Must Be Seeing Things was released in July 1965, its UK counterpart was titled after Gene’s latest Top 5 hit ‘Looking Thru The Eyes Of Love’. Again, there were track variations: ‘If I Never Get To Love You’ replaced ‘There’s No Living Without Your Loving’ on the UK pressing, and a UK EP included an extra in ‘The Rising Tide Of Love’. These two recordings, together with ‘Last Chance To Turn Around’ (US No.13), are included here.
