Much Better Pitney Collections Out There!

"If you want a quick earful of Gene Pitney, the songs here are good. That said, there are much better compilations of Gene Pitney's work on CD. This may be a good budget-buy CD, but you miss out on such great tunes like "Something's Got a Hold Of My Heart" or "That Girl Belongs To Yesterday."The ultimate Gene Pitney collection, in my opinion, is the 2 CD compilation "Looking Through." Not only do you get the abovementioned songs, but you get scores of Pitney's lesser known tunes like "Billy You're My Friend." Even cooler, it contains Pitney singing several of his hits in Italian, and also includes his duet with Marc Almond.This CD is OK for the price, but the extra cost in buying a more thorough Gene Pitney collection is well worth it."
Great, Music -- Great Value

"For the money, it is tough to beat Gene Pitney's Greatest hits issued by Curb Records. Pitney was a successful song writer in addition to recording his own hits. Only Love Can Break a Heart, Town Without Pity, and Half Heaven Half Heartache are outstanding ballads. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance and Twenty-four Hours From Tulsa show off Pitney's energy and outstanding voice and vocal range. Yes, there are a ton of other Pitney songs not on this CD. But, what do you expect for this kind of money?"
Gene fan for life!

"I have everything Pitney recorded(several times) records worn out, cassettes now CDS. I have own two reincarnations of this album. That said, there are several much better and wider range "best of anthologies" some with 50 songs on it. You are must better off buying them.
This one is fine, just a very limited collection of a singer long neglected."
