Del Shannon ‘Gemini’

I only discovered this in the last year or so, after getting into some of those Pilooski Dirty Edit re-edits. This is a real treat- off Del Shannon’s late 60s baroque- psyche ‘lost masterpiece’ (everyone in the 60s has got one of those havn’t they?) The Further Adventures Of Charles Westover. Ended up buying a re-issue of the album on cd, and it’s good-ish, but this is clearly the standout. The Pilooski edit’s good too, and out there somewhere in internet land, but this is better. He did a similar job on The Human Beinz ‘Nobody But Me’, equally great source track and re-edit. Brilliant song, great instrumentation, great vocals. Enjoy it.
