Pomus & Shuman Story Double Trouble 1956 / Various [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
To complement our soon-to-conclude Leiber & Stoller series, Ace now presents it's first salute to the 'other' great song-writing team of Rock'n'Roll's Golden Age. Individually and collectively, Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman have written more classics of American Pop than almost any other writers of their era. They had more songs accepted and recorded by Elvis Presley than even L & S did (apparently, without ever meeting the King even once). We are also privileged to include, for the first time on an Ace CD, an Elvis Presley recording as our title track - one which, incidentally, was the last song that Pomus & Shuman ever wrote together before dissolving their song-writing partnership in 1966.
