Sadly, this could have used a little more punch, but as it is, it's one of their better post-Walk Away Renee songs. It's also one many songs that slid into obscurity shortly after it's release...until the many collections that popped up later on of course.

Despite being a fine song, this certainly did not stop The Left Banke's fall from Top 40 glory which was killed with the very ill-fated "Ivy Ivy," and it stopped dead at #98 on Nov. 4, 1967 in the US, long after it's September release. It's competition in the AM Pop world was the one that really ruled the airwaves at the time, the Monkees' Daydream Believer. Baroque Pop was nothing compared to the Bright Pop onslaught as well as the growing popularity of Soul (it was the time of Sam and Dave's "Soul Man" among other classics), and heavier music (The Who's "I Can See for Miles" was the rage in The States by then), but it did manage to peep on a few surveys, including Orlando's WLOF and NYC's WMCA.

The Beatles' "Hello Goodbye" was only a few weeks away to go #1 as well.

I don't think that there were any discussions of Baroque Pop being dead.

The Yardbirds' cover of the Nilsson song had some very good studio trickery going on as well as Jimmy Page nailing it with some killer guitar work at the end. One of the highlights of the Page/Little Games era.

A little too out-there for AM radio, this reached #96 on Nov. 15, 1967 in the US, but also reached a few surveys in the Top 20. A regional hit on WSAI in Cincinnati and even big on CKLG in Vancouver. The Pop Singles racket was like that back then, and all the more interesting for that.

Meanwhile, in October, 1967, on the Motor City's WTVS (Channel 56), The MC5 was directing some High Energy that was the fuel for those really in the hip of the day...and forever.

I have decided to listen to the four "main" Doors albums over the course of today. The S/T, Strange Days, Morrison Hotel and L.A. Woman



Should be a pretty great day

The four best, in my opinion. I predict it will be a great day.

A bit of trivia on that classic single...It Bubbled Under to #126 on Apr. 1, 1967, from what I remember. It appeared on the same week of that week's Bubbling Under charts with the debuts of The Seeds' "Can't Seem to Make You Mine" and, with a song as classic as "Break on Through..." in my opinion, The Who's "Happy Jack."

After a week Bubbling Under, this classic jumped up to the Hot 100 on that April 1, 1967 (Moving to #15 on BB by May). Arguably the greatest moment of Eric Burdon and The New Animals, this seriously showed the promise that was occasionally lived up to.

A very introspective song and a true classic of that era.
