 "Town of Tuxley Toy Maker Part 1" was The Bee Gees first recording session in England after they had relocated from Australia. The song, written by Barry, Robin and Maurice features all three on backing vocals with the recording taking place in March 1967 at IBC Studios in London. The orchestra was arranged by Bill Shepherd with Robert Stigwood as producer. Stigwood had merged his Robert Stigwood Agency with Brian Epstein's company and both Billy J. Kramer and The Bee Gees were NEMS artists at this time. The song had previously been recorded in late 1966 by Australian vocalist Jon Blanchfield LK 1662, with The Bee Gees also on backing vocals, prior to their move to the UK.

 this would be his final pairing with The Dakotas

Indeed. Recorded in November 1966 with the Dakotas' line-up of Mick Green, Robin MacDonald and Frank Farley. There was one more session in November resulting in the unreleased R 5552 - 45 which was augmented by session players already.

 The A side was recorded and credited to "Billy J. Kramer" while the flipside "Chinese Girl" was recorded and credited to "Billy J. Kramer and The Dakotas", this would be his final pairing with The Dakotas.
