Blue Gene / Meets The Fair Young Ladies Of Folkland - Gene Pitney

Blue Gene / Meets The Fair Young Ladies Of Folkland
Comprises two original albums, including Pitney’s first UK Top 5 hit ‘Twenty-Four Hours From Tulsa’ and its follow-up, the Jagger/Richards-penned ‘That Girl Belongs To Yesterday’.
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 1963, Blue Gene was Gene’s fourth US album and the first to be released in the UK where it reached No.7 in April 1964. The plug track ‘Tulsa’ was complemented by covers of popular standards (‘I’ll Be Seeing You’, ‘Answer Me, My Love’) and new material (‘Yesterday’s Hero’, ‘I Can’t Run Away’). The UK edition differed by one track; ‘Take It Like A Man’ was the closer in place of ‘House Without Windows’.
Following hard on its heels that December came Meets The Fair Young Ladies Of Folkland, a "concept” album which marked a departure from the usual hit-driven formula. In an attempt to woo the teen market, the album was hastily repackaged as Dedicated To My Teen Queens and remains one of Gene’s rarest albums. Gene’s second UK Top 10 single, ‘That Girl Belongs To Yesterday’, is included here by way of a bonus.

Booklet features the original Musicor album sleeves and updated liner notes by Pitney authority Roger Dopson.

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which was then a hit and would peak at No.2 The UK LP also included ‘I’m Gonna Find Myself A Girl’ which had been withdrawn as a single in the US and likewise omitted from It Hurts...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.
