Singer-guitarist Charles Westover and keyboard player Max Crook performed together as members of "Charlie Johnson and the Big Little Show Band" in Battle Creek, Michigan, before their group won a recording contract in 1960. Westover took the new stage name "Del Shannon", and Crook, who had invented his own clavioline-based electric keyboard called a Musitron, became "Maximilian". After their first recording session for Big Top Records in New York City had ended in failure, their manager Ollie McLaughlin persuaded them to rewrite and re-record an earlier song they had written, "Little Runaway", to highlight Crook's unique instrumental sound. On January 21, 1961, they recorded "Runaway" at the Bell Sound recording studios, with Harry Balk as producer, Fred Weinberg as audio engineer and also session musician on several sections: session musician Al Caiola on guitar, Moe Wechsler on piano, and Crook playing the central Musitr...

The best-known original version is in mono. However, in subsequent compilations a different take from the same recording sessions is available in stereo.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Kdcnosn2tY Eruption - Runaway (Ein Kessel Buntes 11.07.1981) (VOD) - YouTube — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 22:27, 7 March 2019 (UTC) It would make sense to make a list similar to the movies section, perhaps categorizing by genre, replacing the fluff and cruft with descriptive information. The Misfits, for instance, are an old-school punk band; I am not sure how calling them a horror punk band helps describe this song.--John Bessa (talk) 17:44, 9 April 2010 (UTC) 1. Not just that. Shannon himself recorded several versions of this classic, the newer of which had the clavioline audibly replaced by a Wurlitzer etc. The timing in the singing is different, too. We *should* distinguish them. But that should be an expert's task, to avoid too many unverified nonsense getting added to the article. -andy 126.96.36.199 (talk) 12:30, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Il cantante e chitarrista Charles Westover e il tastierista Max Crook suonarono insieme come membri dei Charlie Johnson and the Big Little Show Band a Battle Creek, Michigan prima che il loro gruppo ottenesse un contratto nel 1960. Westover per l'occasione si assegnò un nuovo nome, "Del Shannon", e Crook (che è riconosciuto come l'inventore del Musitron), si trasformò in "Maximilian". Dopo che le loro prime sessioni di registrazione per la Big Top Records a New York City si rivelarono un completo fallimento, il loro manager Ollie McLaughlin li persuase di riscrivere e di ri-registrare una delle loro composizioni più vecchie, Little Runaway, in modo tale da far evidenziare il suono strumentale di Crook. Il 24 gennaio 1961 i due registrarono Runaway agli studi di registrazione Bell Sound, insieme a Harry Balk in veste di produttore, a Fred Weinberg come ingegnere del suono e a molti musicisti come Al Caiola, Al Casamenti e Bucky Pizzarelli (alla chitarra), Milt Hinton (al basso) e Joe...
