Brian Hyland :: UNI, 1970

When vocalist Brian Hyland set out to reinvent himself in the late ‘60s, he already had a couple of hit singles to his name, including "Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini," a novelty song he cut at the tender age of 16, and “Sealed With a Kiss,” recorded two years later. But those bubblegum gems don’t really indicate where Hyland would head with his self-titled 1970 record, a remarkable album of soft psych, blue-eyed soul, and power pop.

Del Shannon, no stranger to the pop charts sat in . . .
