AllMusic Review by

This ten-track compilation covers Gene Pitney's most commercially productive period in the early '60s, including "Town Without Pity," "Hello Mary Lou," and "Only Love Can Break a Heart." Unfortunately, several of the remaining tracks, including "Twenty-Four Hours From Tulsa," are re-recordings. While this is an affordable disc, too many original hits are omitted. Anthology 1961-1968 on Rhino is the definitive Gene Pitney hits compilation.
