Background: I Think We’re Alone Now was the third LP by Tommy James and the Shondells. While it only reached #74 on the U.S. album charts, it did include three singles that reached the U.S. Top 25: “I Think We’re Alone Now,” “Mirage,” and “I Like the Way.”
“I Think We’re Alone Now” was the first Top Five hit for Tommy James since his 1966 chart-topper “Hanky Panky,” and a redemption of sorts for/from the album that came in between, the sugary It’s Only Love. Ritchie Cordell is in total control here, writing the first eight songs on the disc, including all three that charted: “I Think We’re Alone Now,” the exquisite “Mirage,” and “I Like the Way.” … There are plenty of flavors from the day slipped into this wonderful mix, a true pop concoction that has stood the test of time. In concert both “Mirage” and “I Think We’re Alone Now” are major moments; James’ hit material over the years contained a rich variety of composition. This album is Ritchie Cordell’s vision for Tommy James and is an important and highly entertaining piece of the Shondells’ catalog.
