 The video posted below is a great unofficial version of the A-side. I enjoyed hearing it. Anyone know who created it? Was it anyone here?

Let's enjoy the A-side as it was released here


3rd Nov 2013
 Such a perfect single from a group that never had another Top 40 hit.

Absolutely — and certainly one of the coolest (in the strictest Beat meaning of the word) labels ever.

 The Boy From New York City

.....such a cool sound, stretched out here from 2:50 to 5:01 unofficially, and dig the Wes Montgomery style guitar licks, the horn flourishes, and the beautifully defined drum rolls towards the fade......this ones going on the CD-r for the car.....
