Somethimes I'm Happy / Hit After Hit [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
Gene McDaniels had a brief but successful career as a pop singer in the early 60's when Gene signed a contract with Liberty Records and worked with producer Tommy 'Snuff' Garrett, who supplied Gene with songs written by the Brill Building stable of songwriters. In all he had six top forty hits, all in 1961 and 1962. Later, he began to go by the name Eugene McDaniels and recorded some soul-styled social consciousness records for Atlantic in the early 70's. He also wrote a number of songs as Eugene McDaniels, including 'Feel Like Makin' Love', which was a number one hit for Roberta Flack in 1974. Here we have Gene's second UK Liberty Records album coupled with a 1962 US compilation featuring songs such as 'Green Door', 'Tower of Strength' & his first, biggest hit 'A Hundred Pounds of Clay'. Digitally remastered, slip-cased with new notes. BGO. 2005.
