Muze PNote This takes the highlights of Varese's earlier More Greatest Hits and Rhino's Anthology and sweats it all down to one scintillating single disc with 25 All-Time Greatest Hits. All of Gene Pitney's biggies are here ("24 Hours to Tulsa," "Town Without Pity," "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance," "It Hurts to Be in Love," "Only Love Can Break a Heart," the original "Hello, Mary Lou"), along with rarities like "Something's Gotten Hold of My Heart," and it all stands as a monument to Pitney's enormous talent, both as an emotional purveyor of song and a brilliant arranger, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. With 16 Top 40 hits and another ten Top Ten U.K. hits, this becomes the perfect one-stop-shopping must-have to round up a bunch of great Gene Pitney music. ~ Cub Koda

Artist Overview

With his urgent, keening voice and pathos-ridden songs, Gene Pitney had some huge hits in the early 1960s ("Town Without Pity," "Only Love Can Break a Heart"), all just a little off-kilter and sinister, and was by far the most substantive of the era's teen idols. He was equally successful as a songwriter for other artists, though. Ricky Nelson's "Hello Mary Lou" and the Crystals' "He's a Rebel" bore Pitney's name, as did songs recorded by everyone from Roy Orbison to Nick Cave. Along the way, the eclectic, unpredictable Pitney recorded albums of country music and Italian songs, and even played on an early Rolling Stones session. He died in 2006.
