Our first in a series of De Shannon releases is a strong collection of originals like ‘When You Walk In The Room’, ‘The Prince’ and ‘You Won’t Forget Me’ along with her original version of ‘Needles & Pins’.The LP was hastily compiled in 1964 to capitalise on De Shannon being chosen to support the Beatles on their US tour that year. The rather ordinary LP front cover with a photo of De Shannon from somewhere else, not from the tour, rather reflects the haste. However the recordings are superb, arranged by Jack Nitzsche, they confirm what a tremendous performer she is, as the original liner notes declared:”Far from being just a decorative contrast on the stage Jackie has proven to be a terrific success. Her twisting, shouting performances have drawn wild applause and cheers from the record crowds at every concert.”In addition we have been able to add 8 bonus non LP tracks from the contemporary singles.
