i love gene!

gene was amazing. you can see some of his tv appearances on youtube. also, on youtube, check out Eddie Skuller singing Gene's hit "only love can break a heart" -- he does a good version of it.

Another Wonderful Album!

Gene Pitney was an excellent musician. He was a song writer and singer. All of the songs on this album are wonderful. Including "My heart, your heart", "Donna means heartbreak" and several other songs such as "Only love can break a heart", and "I should try to forget". Another good album to add to a collection.


Gene was an excellent composer, musician and singer. In addition to his many songs, he composed songs for Bobby Vee (Rubber Ball), Ricky Nelson(Hello MaryLou and the Chiffons(He's a Rebel). One on the best songs on this album is If I Didn't Have a Dime. Great Album with several songs that were not popular nevertheless very good.
