This post has been republished following the death of Paul Revere.

Paul Revere and the Raiders became a famous 1960s American rock group; this was their first release in the UK, originally on Top Rank TRK-27 and JAR-557 in 1961. Originally called The Downbeats, the group was led by organist Paul Revere Dick and singer Mark Lindsay (who sings the vocal on this track). The other musicians on this session are understood to be Robert White and Richard White (guitars), William Hibbard (bass) and Jerry Labrum (drums). There have been many changes to the group’s line up. The record was issued by Sue on WI 344. Those tights look painful.

Billboard Pop No 38.
