About Tommy James & The Shondells

Few acts had a better run on the pop charts in the '60s than Tommy James & the Shondells. James has a strong, expressive voice and a way with upbeat pop tunes that have a solid rock & roll punch. The band crafted superior AM pop/rock tunes like "Hanky Panky," "I Think We're Alone Now," "It's Only Love," and "Mony Mony." As psychedelia worked its way into mainstream acceptance later in the decade, they kept up with the times on the hits "Crimson and Clover" and "Crystal Blue Persuasion." The Shondells weren't considered very hip in their heyday, but they remain one of the best-remembered acts of the era. 1967's I Think We're Alone Now and 1969's trippy Cellophane Symphony were strong albums from the group's original run.
