Gene Pitney: "24 Sycamore" (1967)

Großes Melodram. "Ballads were his meat", schrieb Nik Cohn über Gene Pitney. "Tearjerkers, monstrous flowerpots that made Roy Orbison's songs sound like Woody Woodpecker symphonies in comparison. And he had a big voice, a fine range and most professional projection, but he chose to sing in a whine like an electric saw."
