His Greatest Hits Review

by Steve Leggett

This set hits all of Del Shannon's commercial and artistic high points, including the impressive singles "Runaway," "Little Town Flirt," "Keep Searchin' (We'll Follow the Sun)," "Handy Man," and the striking "Stranger in Town," a song which, while definitely pop material, cuts to the heart of American attitudes about outsiders, a theme, on one level or another, Shannon explored throughout his career.
