After a two-year stint in the military, Lou Christie returned to the pop charts in 1966 with his cinematic masterpiece "Lightnin' Strikes." In response, his former label, Roulette, assembled Lou Christie Strikes Again, 12 odds and ends compiled from the singer's brief tenure with the company. Despite the shamelessness of the album title — after all, "Lightnin' Strikes" appears nowhere here — this is not quite the brazen cash-in one might imagine; nine tracks are original compositions by Christie and longtime writing partner Twyla Herbert, and while none match the twisted grandeur of the singer's biggest hits, they nevertheless possess a maturity and intensity uncommon for pop music of the pre-Beatles era. And Christie's vocals are remarkable regardless of the material he's singing. Not even Frankie Valli could hit the high notes with as much dramatic flair.
