That's Bernie Nee providing the 5-tracked voice and popping sounds.

 Added an alternate label variant, most notable in the writers credits and spacing under titles. When I was a kid, I loved this song, and now my seven year old likes to sing it in the car!

I wish I would have thought to ask Bachrach about this song when I met him on the beach in Del Mar, CA in early 80's. But in hindsight, he probably wasn't in any condition to answer as we had to help Carole Bayer Sager to get him walking back to their beachfront house (LOL). I have also always wondered why he chose to misspell "Tijuana"?

 Added another set of label variances. One of in the interesting details of the label variation is that the factory was nice enough to give me TWO labels on the a side. Wonder if Burt Bacharach ever performs this in concert?
