The label copy and liner notes never were changed, LP) they always gave the title as Boy Meets Girl. Songs are duets unless noted otherwise. From this point, mono issues were mostly radio station promos, not commercial releases. MS - 15 Favorites - Sam Makia . There is a monaural promo version of this album.
Original contains a photo of George. Reissued as The Star with the same catalog number and content but without the photo. From approximately this point, releases were stereo only. With an artist like Pitney, one CD just doesn't cut it. Plus this includes what may be the last set of liner notes that Gene ever wrote.
The only thing that will pass this set will be when somebody Bear Family?? One person found this helpful. I have been a Gene Pitney fan for almost 50 years. This superb compilation finally has every major song and more from his peak career in the 's.
It only lacks the rare cuts from his pre-hit period, such as the demo gem "Make Believe Lover", which alone is worth the price of the excellent Bear CD "Hits and Misses". I only regret missing my one chance to see him in person in Syracuse a few years before he died - rest in peace, Gene, LP). This is an excellent three CD box set of excellent songs and ballads by one of the very best performers ever: Gene Pitney. Gene could sing better than most of them; he could take anything and perform it so well that it would sound truly very special.
I hope he is remembered forever--he deserves it! This CD set boasts extensive liner notes by Gene Pitney himself along with beautiful photos; the artwork is very well done. The sound quality is also quite good. While there's very little I can add about Pitney's extraordinary talent because of excellent reviews already posted here, I can reinforce the fact that when Gene Pitney sang, people listened.
He could make millions of fans happy with his wonderful voice and there was true sincerity, honesty and passion LP) his voice when he sang. His songs could make the airwaves sizzle, too! This is obvious when you listen to the many tracks here that have him singing solo; and when he did do a duet it was brilliantly performed, too. Moreover, on these tracks Sweet Dreams - George Jones (2) & Gene Pitney - George Jones & Gene Pitney (Vinyl musical accompaniments always fit in well with Gene's vocals.
I recommend this CD set for any fan of Gene Pitney. It remains a fine addition and even essential to any collection someone would want of Gene's talent. The more casual fan may want to begin their Gene Pitney collection with a single CD although Gene Pitney's singing remains so exceptional that this box set makes a fine place to start--and it won't be the last music by Gene you get for your music library!
This is fine music by a true artist. I am posting the track listing for my copy which appears to have the same songs but in different order, with some songs being on different discs. The upc code of my set matches the listing here. Disc 1 1. Take Me Tonight 3. Louisiana Mama 4. Every Breath I Take 5. Town Without Pity 6. Dream For Sale 7. Man Who Shot Liberty Valance 8. Take It Like a Man 9.
