Record Mirror review Apr 15, 1967.


14th Feb 2016
 B side is a Psych Gem with some nice bendy guitar notes, you'd never know it was him singing, sounds like a USA artist... "her powers of love will last all night", he's not after her conversation as the lyrics make clear!

A side is Part 1, was there Part 2 issued? A complex Psych Pop with a lot going for it if too sophisticated for a hit it seems. Male backing in parts, a bit deep to be Bee Gees?

 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.
