“Only Love Can Break A Heart” by Gene Pitney - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1962Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

A shed-load of Bacharach & David schmaltz, with only occasional smatterings of cool to relieve the boredom. Best track for me is “(The Man Who Shot) Liberty Valance”, which was written for, but not ultimately used in, the film of the same name. The title track gave Pitney his biggest hit in the US. In an ironic twist, it was kept off the #1 spot by a song that he himself had written; the awesome “He's A Rebel” which was a hit for The Crystals.
