I was planning to save this for next Friday, but Mark Lindsay of Paul Revere and the Raiders had to go and say some very nice things about my cover of his song.
So, yeah! We're talking about a genuinely nice reaction from someone whose albums I feverishly collected in my formative teenage years. So, y'all get a bonus! This has been included as a bonus track on the Raiders "Country Wine" album in recent years. I first heard it on a career retrospective called "The Legend of Paul Revere" and I instantly fell in love with the song upon first listen.
This particular song was written by Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter, who also wrote "Rhinestone Cowboy", "Baby Come Back", and "Ain't No Woman (Like the One I've Got)" among other songs!
