Del, Peter and Gordon
Peter and Gordon's hit song "World Without Love" is a song I admire greatly. It's classic Paul McCartney all over. I haven't heard too many covers of the song until I recently came across this cover by Del Shannon. Interestingly, one of Shannon's compositions, "I Go To Pieces" gave Peter and Gordon a US Chart hit. Del Shannon, might have been an early rock and roller, but he was clued into the changing pop music trends - he was the first American artist to record a Beatles song (From Me To You, 1963).
