1661 Seconds With Del Shannon - AMV 1965
The album features two of Shannon's finest original singles "Stranger in Town" and "Keep Searchin'"- Moreover there is Shannon's original "I Go to Pieces" which the British duo Peter and Gordon turned into a top-ten hit. Another stand-out is Shannon's great version of "Rag Doll", which I clearly prefer to the Four Seasons' orginal. Less successful is his cover of Roy Orbison's "Running Scared". Shannon clearly was a big fan of Orbison, but he simply hadn't got the voice to do such a song.
The rest of the album is mostly nice pop-ballads of which several are writtin by Shannon himself. This album is obviously a must have for any fan of Del Shannon.
