About

"Runaway" was one of the greatest hits of the early '60s, with its unforgettable riffs and Del Shannon's amazing vocal range (which often glided off into a powerful falsetto), and creepy, futuristic organ solo in the middle. It went to #1 on the charts, and the similar follow-up, "Hats Off to Larry," also made the top ten. Although classified at times as a teen idol, he favored brooding themes of abandonment, loss, and rejection. In some respects he looked forward to the British Invasion with his frequent use of minor chords and ability to write most of his own material. In fact, Shannon was able to keep going strong for a year or two into the British Invasion, and never stopped playing original music. This collection features three tracks from the Jeff Lynn (ELO) produced album Rock On, issued after his death (unavailable for over 10 years). The booklet includes photos and detailed liner notes by music writer Bill Dahl.
