AllMusic Review by

This takes the highlights of Varese's earlier More Greatest Hits and Rhino's Anthology and sweats it all down to one scintillating single disc with 25 All-Time Greatest Hits. All of Gene Pitney's biggies are here ("24 Hours to Tulsa," "Town Without Pity," "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance," "It Hurts to Be in Love," "Only Love Can Break a Heart," the original "Hello, Mary Lou"), along with rarities like "Something's Gotten Hold of My Heart," and it all stands as a monument to Pitney's enormous talent, both as an emotional purveyor of song and a brilliant arranger, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. With 16 Top 40 hits and another ten Top Ten U.K. hits, this becomes the perfect one-stop-shopping must-have to round up a bunch of great Gene Pitney music.
