She always thinks Gene Pitney is Billy Joe Royal. That's what happens when you raise a girl and spin "Down in the Boondocks" a lot. That said, "Town Without Pity" just popped out of the speakers with its stunning arrangement. Gene's hit "I Want To Love My Life Away," "Dream for Sale" and "Twenty Two Days" make it a great side. Side 2 slows a bit, but has Gene's version of the song that Ricky Nelson made a hit, "Hello Mary Lo. This is an LP I'm so glad to have found!

A bunch of early hits ("Town Without Pity," "I Wanna Love My Life Away," "Every Breath I Take") form the core of this early LP, filled out by generally less impressive material, much of it written by Pitney. The secondary tracks are highlighted by his own version of his composition "Hello Mary Lou" (a hit for Rick Nelson), as well as "Dream for Sale" (co-written by Phil Spector), the dramatic "Take Me Tonight," and "Today's Teardrops" (also done by Nelson and Roy Orbison).

The Many Sides of Gene Pitney is the debut album of Gene Pitney, released on the Musicor label in 1962. It was mostly a collection of previously released singles. Among them was "(I Wanna) Love My Life Away" which charted at on the Billboard Hot 100 on March 4, 1961 and was on the charts for eight weeks. The song "Every Breath I Take" charted as high as on September 16, 1961, and was on the charts for eight weeks
Many Moods is Gene's very first LP, and though it didn't chart, almost all the songs were reused on Gene's fourth album, World Wide Winners, which was one of his best selling albums. Musicor had a maddening way of reusing material on album after album to the extent that there were over 20 Pitney albums between 1962 and 1966, creating an unbelievably convoluted discography. Sound quality is excellent, with the essentially self-penned "The Many Sides of Gene Pitney" sounding superb in its original mono format featuring two early Phil Spector productions. Had he not become a major star, Pitney would have become a Brill Building songwriting force to be reckoned with, and MSOGP clearly underscores this.
