    It is another oldie, but goodie. It's unreal how many of these songs that I was introduced to in the 70's! They stand the test of time.

    I stumbled across this song today. Long story, but I really loved it. It was first recorded by the Four Seasons, but I like this version. This band is from the UK. Started in 1958 and had a 50 year run at it!

    That song as you said was first recorded by The Four Seasons, but it was released as a "B" side to their hit single Rag Doll & never charted on it's own. Rag Doll was a #1 hit in 1964. The song was written by Bob Crewe & Bob Gaudio. Gaudio was a member of the group & he & Crewe wrote a ton of hit singles together including "Big Girls Don't Cry", "Rag Doll", and "Walk Like a Man". Bob Gaudio wrote the song Short Shorts as a member of the Royal Teens when he was just 15 (a #3 hit in 1958).

    But, when it comes to the Tremeloes, here is my favorite of theirs & this one was written by Cat Stevens long before Cat Steven became famous in his own right. It was their 1st hit in 1967.

    I had never heard Here Comes My Baby. Interesting note about Cat Stevens! I LOVE Cat Stevens. I just heard a recent commercial with one of his songs. I can't tell if the song is new or old, but probably old. I think it's for a car or phone. Have you heard it?

    Here's my favorite Cat Stevens song. Probably on my list of TOP TEN favorite songs of all time. Hey, maybe we should start a thread for our TOP TEN FAVORITE SONGS. That would be fun, but I'd need top 20. Too many songs to narrow it to only 10. lol

    Re: Rediscovering Classics / Music Memories

    During my music buying life time I have bought two albums that I completely wore out & had to buy second copies. One was Sgt. Pepper by The Beatles, the other one was Tea For The Tilllerman by Cat Stevens. It is an simply a great album.

    Here are a couple of album tracks that shoulda coulda woulda been big hits if they were released.

    Re: Rediscovering Classics / Music Memories

    I like On The Road To Find Out the best, but all of his material is awesome. I read that some from this album was featured in the movie Harold & Maude! Did you see that? GREAT movie.
    There's not much better than a roaring fire, glass of wine and Cat Stevens or may VAN MORRISON! Another favorite.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tea_for_the_Tillerman


    I never owned a Beatles record until the 2000's! I know that sounds odd, because I really like them, but I'm not sure why that happened. I did purchase Beatles greatest hits around 2005.

    I actually went to the movie theater to see Sgt. Pepper when it came out. I'm not sure why I didn't buy the album, though I think the movie came out many years after the release of the album.

    My favorites include: A Day In The Life, With A Little Help From My Friends, Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds and Sgt. Pepper Lonely Hearts Club Band.

    Harold & Maude was a great movie & it was Cat Stevens. There was a bit of Tea For The Tillerman & a bit of his earlier stuff as well.

    The Beatles had nothing to do with that gawd awful movie. And yes, the movie was years later. The album was 1967 & is #1 on a lot of Greatest Albums lists, but there are a lot of Beatles fans that say it isn't even the best album the band ever did. Many point to either Revolver or The White album.

    It's hard to nail down a particular Beatles album, because there is so much. I love some of the old, like I Saw Her Standing There, one of my favorites and the later stuff like Revolution. Amazing considering how few years they actually toured. 1961-1969. Recall they have just released a movie about their touring years, directed by Ron Howard, called Eight Days A Week.

    The Beatles touring years were just 1962 - 66.

    At one point in the 70's, Sergeant Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band has sold over 7 million copies without releasing a song as a single. It held the record at the time & I am sure it still does. Strawberry Fields & Penny Lane were both written during this period & considered for the album, but instead were released as singles & held back for the Magical Mystery Tour album.

    Re: Rediscovering Classics / Music Memories

    Since the discussion above mentioned song writers Bob Gaudio & Bob Crewe, how about an actual performance from Mr. Gaudio.

    This song first hit the charts on January 27, 1958.

    Short Shorts – The Royal Teens

    This one will go all the way to #3 for the group. All the members of the group were contributing writers. This was their 1st Top 40 hit & their only Top 10. They had just 2 Top 40 hit singles in their short lived career.

    Members of this band included Bob Gaudio (piano) who would later join the Four Seasons & write many of their hits, Bill Crandell (sax) who would move on to The Knickerbockers, & in 1959 the great Al Kooper even joined for a brief period of time.
