Northern Soul Classics - She's A Heartbreaker - Gene Pitney

Another bit of blue-eyed soul, this time from the brilliant Gene Pitney the little man with a huge voice. I'm included two versions. The first has the full track, but the second, which misses the opening bars has video of gene singing the song.

I'm pretty sure this dates back to the Twisted Wheel in Manchester, though it was big at the Torch too, and I played it a lot at Youth Club discos in the early 70's, though it took some people time to accept it, especially as it was Gene Pitney.
