Released in 1981, this little gem was produced by Tom Petty and features the Heartbreakers as backing band of choice. The result is an album that updates Shannon's sound without putting him through any embarrassing, then-current commercial ploys (to Shannon's eternal credit, he looks younger on the cover than he did when he had "Runaway" out).

This two original albums on CD features Del Shannon's fifth and sixth album. Album five is a Hank Williams tribute featuring only Williams songs. This may have looked like a good idea at the time, and many other pop-artists at the time recorded such tribute albums. Often this had to do with lacking enough new quality material for release, and the record-companies obviously tried to cash in on their popular artists.

Ancora alla soglia degli anni quaranta Claude Shannon usava intelligence per parlare di informazione, un termine che avrebbe cominciato davvero a diffondersi solo qualche anno più tardi, con la sua "Teoria matematica delle comunicazioni", insieme a una parolina, bit, destinata a diventare una delle più pervasive dell'ultimo mezzo secolo. Amata e vituperata, quella parolina segna un punto di passaggio fondamentale: quando l'informazione diventa una grandezza quantificabile e misurabile. Difficile valutarne davvero l'importanza, ma James Gleick ci prova, raccogliendo i fili sparsi di una storia che parte da lontano, dai poemi omerici e dall'invenzione della scrittura e dell'alfabeto, passando per la lessicografia e i dizionari, i codici crittografici e le moderne tecnologie della comunicazione…
