A solo star who charted regularly in the ’60s with big production ballads, Pitney continued to record during the ’70s but without his former commercial success. Himself a songwriter, Pitney owed much of his achievement to his ear for a good song. The Bronze Sessions consists of the complete recordings for his not particularly brilliant album Pitney ’75 plus six bonus tracks he cut in 1990. With extensive sleevenotes by Rodney Collins, this reissue is squarely aimed at lifelong fans.
