  • Description

    "It was the first recording I ever bought," Shaun Cassidy said of "Da Doo Ron Ron," Fourteen years after The Ronettes' version hit the charts and peaked at #3, Shaun's own recording of the song went straight to number one.

    "That's Rock 'N' Roll" was the follow-up, a song that went to #3 in 1977. Shaun's recording of another Eric Carmen song, "Hey Deanie," went top ten the following year. Shaun was nominated for a "Best New Artist" Grammy in 1977. Both the songs and Shaun's delivery of same were seamless pop at it's best. In addition to including his top ten hits, this one-of-a-kind collection also features some of Shaun's own compositions including "Teen Dream," "Break For The Street," "Hard Love;" and "She's Right" . Shaun's rendition of the Lovin' Spoonful classic "Do You Believe In Magic" is featured here, as is his cover of the Ian Hunter song, "Once Bitten Twice Shy" (produced by the legendary Todd Rundgren), who also produced two of the other songs on this collection - "Cool Fire" and "So Sad About Us." Shaun's recording of the Brian Wilson-penned "It's Like Heaven" is also included in this first-of-its-kind collection.

    It's Shaun's memorable foray into pop music that this special collection salutes, one which should bring back great memories for many fans. Another listen to "Da Doo Ron Ron" will leave no doubt as to why Shaun holds the distinction of having the best-selling solo debut in history. Maybe it's time he looked through his record collection again.
