This tune was pop hit in England back in 1964. It was produced by Shel Talmy who learned his craft in Los Angeles as an engineer. The back story is curious: Whilst on vacation in England, he played some Beach Boys and Lou Rawls tracks to some Decca brass (erroneously claiming production credits) -They hired him on to produce some amazing groups – Kinks, The Who, Bowie, The Creation, and more. He had the skills to back up the Beach Rawls ruse. Rushmore fans might remember this tune from the movie soundtrack too. It’s a folk-pop beauty. Talmy’s story makes it even better.
