Time tho for the powers that be to put out more of his non-hit catalogue - many gems exist and its a project crying out to be tackled.
I really like this CD, and highly recommend it. Find out about Del Shannon with this very nice overview of his work.
This collection covers from his first hit "Runaway" in 1961,
to his 14th hit "Stranger in town" in 1965.
Of those fourteen charted songs, thirteen are here,
the one missing is "Sue's gotta be mine" from 1963.
All songs in this collection either charted, or are the best album cuts
from the five L.P.'s that had been released in those years.
Shannon went on to add three more songs on the charts,
making it a total of 4 charted singles that are not here.
The first two of the three additional songs charted at numbers 95, and 94.
The third song broke into the top forty.
1. "Break up", 1964.
2. "The big hurt", 1966.
3. "Sea of love", 1981.
Shannon had 17 charted songs from 1961 to 1981,
13 are here, plus 4 b-sides, and some superb album tracks.
19 of these 30 tracks are in stereo, and all of the c.d. sounds excellent.
That distinctive, remarkable voice that took "Runaway" to the top of the charts,
is here in all these sixties recordings.
None of Shannon's later recordings are here.
Included is five pages of liner notes.
Nicely presented c.d. from 'Collectables' records, 2002.
Truely enjoyable form beginning to end!
The hook is the best ever, the beat is great, it's seminal.

Returned due to a cracked case and terrible sound quality. Half of the songs on the disc I received sounded like they were recorded underwater. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Jim

Some of the songs sound very tinny, and it didn't actually have as many of his "oldies but goodies" on the CD as I'd hoped for. Still, some good listening provided......Published on July 11, 2013 by Susan A. Casad
Great Music. I still prefer their music rather than the noise that rock groups make this present time.Published on October 19, 2009 by Herman M. Manuel
