Peter & Gordon: I Go to Pieces

Album Notes

The duo's third album was a versatile but patchy collection. And there was no getting around it: The best tracks, as was the case in many acts of the era, were the hits -- "I Go to Pieces" and the less well-remembered brassy, pounding "Don't Pity Me." They were at their best when they were at their folkiest, as on their nice cover of the Everly Brothers' "Sleepless Nights" and the decent original "Tears Don't Stop," which wouldn't have sounded out of place in the Searchers' repertoire. But they weren't well-equipped to tackle bluesy rock and folk oldies, as they tried to do with Elvis Presley's "All Shook Up" and "A Mess of Blues," Doris Troy's "Whatcha Gonna Do About It" (done better by the Hollies), and Leadbelly's "Good Morning Blues"). Still, it's a slightly above-average British Invasion pop/rock album. It's included in its entirety as half of the two-for-one package I Go to Pieces/True Love Ways on Collectables, which adds their fourth album, True Love Ways, and their 1967 hit "Sunday for Tea." ~ Richie Unterberger
