Del may be sporting his late 50s early 60s mutton chops and what must be the largest sunglasses in the world but that didn't stop him writing and recording the GREAT 'Stand Up' in December 1966.
It was never released in the 60s (the liners of the CD 'The Further Adventures Of Charles Westover' don't say why).....it's amazing that something sounding so 'radio friendly' was never released at the time.
The song was recorded at SRS Studio in Hollywood and produced by Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart.
Tommy Boyce and Del Shannon would sadly commit suicide in the 90s by shooting themselves in the head.
