Reseña de álbum

Bobby Vee's debut album was, with the exception of the surprise hit "Devil or Angel" (originally a B-side that got flipped by one DJ and gave Vee the hit that resulted in the renewal of his contract and the recording of this LP), a collection of covers selected by his producer, Snuff Garrett. It's a classic example of the teen pop that pretty much supplanted rock & roll at the very tail end of the 1960s, with the Johnny Mann Singers a little too much in evidence along with a string section (with a band mostly borrowed from Little Richard hanging back), and the arrangements a little too close to the originals. What makes it worth hearing as slightly more than a curio of its period is Vee's singing, which is amazingly good on material to which he cannot always have resonated personally.

Superficially, this album is as tame as anything of its era, apart from "Devil or Angel," but as a showcase for Vee's most mature sound, and his range beyond rock & roll, it's worth hearing as an appendix to his hits, and is a better album than 99 percent of his competitors could have delivered, even if it isn't exactly a rock & roll classic. And while his version of "You Send Me" is nothing great, his rendition of "It's All in the Game" does have a compelling intensity and moodiness that make it stand out.
