A fine double cd set of Del Shannon
on 6 December 2012
This is a very good double cd set, containing 52 tracks, on the Music Club Deluxe label, and covers nearly all of Del's best known recordings, and A few new to myself. I have at least three other Del Shannon cds, that cover all of the tracks that are my favourites, and I really bought this set as he covers the tracks "His latest flame" (Elvis) "Needles & Pins" (Searchers) "Rag Doll" (4 Seasons) and "Sea of Love" (Marty Wilde). I really enjoyed this set of songs, and it is a fitting release and memory to a very talented singer song writer, whose demise was really a sad ending to what should have been an ongoing career. Rumour has it that Del got messed around early in his recording career, as regards his song writing royalties from all his first hit recordings, which may or may not have had a long term effect over his life. One other reviewer of this double set on the Amazon review page would have labelled this release as perfect, if the track "Jody" had been included, I am of a similar mind, not as regards the song "Jody", if the compiler had included the song "The answer to everything" on this set, I would have given this release a five star rating. Oh what a fickle lot we music lovers are. I recommend this release to any Del Shannon fan. Mrs. M Walsh.(Maw).
