 George Slv: Was 1861 a hit in the UK?

1861 was originally included on the UK "Out Of The Shadows" album released October 1962.The album achieved a high of No. 1 on the UK Albums Chart. In February 1963, four tracks from that album that included the track 1861 were released on the "Out Of The Shadows" EP. The EP peaked at No. 3 on the UK EP Chart. 1861 was never released on a single in the UK.

 Theme For Young Lovers sounds suspiciously like the vocal Splendor in the Grass written by Jackie DeShannon. Or was it the other way around?
A list of their UK hits is at everyHit.
In Winnipeg Canada in 1963 I recall 3 chart hits - Atlantis, 1861, and Kon-Tiki.
Was 1861 a hit in UK? EveryHit lists the top 40 for the month, but I don't think it includes all weekly top 40s.

 My copy was given to me in the early 70s, minus a centre, but still a good record!

 A real classic among instrumentals that had the distinction of being the first single I ever bought when I started my record collection way back in March, 1964, a month before my 17th birthday. It cost me 6/8d (or 33 pence in today's money) and in 1964, you could buy three singles for £1. I still have it in its original sleeve and still in excellent condition all these many decades later.
