"This CD joins two albums originally from 1967 and 1969 plus 4 bonus tracks. The gifted vocalist Gene Pitney recorded cover versions of several artists with quite different musical styles, he gives pop renditions of the classic Motown songs "Baby I Need Your Lovin'" (The 4 Tops), The Supremes' "Stop! In The Name Of Love", Jay & The Americans' Italian ballad "Cara Mía", Phil Spector's timeless classic "You've Lost That Lovin'Feeling", Tom Jones' country song "The Green Green Grass of Home", the second album is completely dedicated to cover 50's songs of the band The Platters. Once again Gene shows his vocal talent and an exemplary choice of the songs.
Since 1999 I've been reading that a full length complete CD of Gene Pitney's new recordings is ready to be released, having he recently been inducted in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame could be a good opportunity to release it."

"Again, This guy never ceases to amaze me. He sings thses songs as well as the original artists do! This album has become one of my favorites. My favorite song on this album is "My Prayer". As with his other songs, he sings it with feeling and passion. His professionalism shows in everything he sings. If I had my way, Gene Pitney would be in the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame (long over due in my opinion). I can't wait till he comes out with a new album."

"I own the original LP version of "This is Gene Pitney" from the sixties. It is a two album set that has a playlist of 24 songs.
The cover art shown is from the original LP, but the playlist shown for this product is not the complete one from the original. Buyer beware!!"
