This review is from: Breakin' It Up On The Beatles Tour! (Audio CD)
After Jackie de Shannon opened for the Beatles for the Shea Stadium of 1964 her record company found a perfect excuse for issuing what was the equivalent of her first Greatest Hits album or Singles Collection and used the name of the Beatles to sell it.
In her own country she was closer to a Cult artist but in the UK a number of her songs were picked up by the Searchers who topped the charts with Needles & Pins-written by Bono & Nitschze-and When you walk in the room.This prompted her to record over here but she was unable to secure a hit single.
In the States it would not be till about 1966 she charted with a Burt Bacharach song.
This collection is of her work from 1962/3 and the CD has added more extra songs.She was both a writer and an interpreter at home mostly in the folk rock area
