* Individually and collectively, Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman have written more classics of American Pop than almost any other writers of their era. They had more songs accepted and recorded by Elvis Presley than even L & S did (apparently, without ever meeting the King even once).
* This package offers a strong mix of the obvious classics we couldn't leave out, and songs that should have been as big as those that did become major hits. It also includes songs that will surprise people who think that P & S only wrote teen pop, tackled by artists including Irma Thomas, Howard Tate, Ray Charles and the McCoys. Many of these tracks are making their CD debut here.
* We are also privileged to include, for the first time on an Ace CD, an Elvis Presley recording as our title track - one which, incidentally, was the last song that Pomus & Shuman ever wrote together before dissolving their song-writing partnership in 1966.
* Released with the blessing of both the Estates of Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman, "Double Trouble" is the sort of tribute that writers of their calibre deserve. Don't bet against there being a volume two sometime in the near future.
