Del Shannon: 'My Success Changed My Friends'

Norman Jopling, Record Mirror, 23 January 1965

ONE OF THE chief attractions about Del Shannon is his own individual style of singing and guitar playing. So it'll come as a shock to his fans if ever they hear his latest album just issued in the States, it's tagged Del Shannon sings Hank Williams and contains some of the most authentic country and western music recorded by a pop singer for a long time.
