Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Del Shannon (vocals, guitar).
  • At ten songs, none of which comes close to being three minutes long, this set of Del Shannon's biggest hits is over almost before it begins. However brief, it does hit all of Shannon's commercial high points, including the impressive singles "Runaway," "Little Town Flirt," "Keep Searchin' (We'll Follow the Sun)," "Handy Man," and the striking "Stranger in Town," a song, while definitely pop material, cuts to the heart of American attitudes about outsiders, a theme, on one level or another, Shannon explored throughout his career. ~ Steve Leggett

Gotta love this guy. "Runaway" is easily one of rocks single greatest songs, but there's a couple lesser-known gems hidden on this comprehensive disc.
"So Long Baby" is fabulous. Deep horn blasts underscore Del's dismissive lyrics. Del makes it clear there is no way this chick burned him more than he burned her. Why isn't this gem in more oldies rotations?

Sadly, Del spent a lot of time on sappy spineless ballads, and Rhino saw fit to include all of them here. Still, this is a great collection of Del's lesser known work.

Del's raucous cover of the Beatle's "From Me to You" is an unexpected surprise.

Like all things Rhino, the liner notes are complete and entertaining. Unklike most things Rhino, some of these cuts don't seem as sterlized as they might be. Actually, the static under "Runaway" just makes it that much cooler.
