Gene Pitney was one of my favorite singers from the 50's/60's era. "Looking through the eyes of love" was such a great song and the voice....well...for those of you who know who Gene Pitney is, I needn't say anymore. I think he captured the emotion of the 60's in his voice somehow and he will always be one of my all time favorite singers.
