  the alleged story that this was recorded in a hotel room in the Bahamas

Not quite a hotel room - both were recorded at "Serena Studio" in Nassau ca. 13.04.66 together with other tracks which turned up on the US-only ANIMALISM album.

 Hybrid copies exist (got one today) with Nanocyar-style A side label on one side and buff-scrag B side label on the other.

 The final single to be released in the bands first lifetime was another stunner. A moody ballad with bags of atmosphere. A rarity too in that there exists a great stereo mix of this - and the B side which clearly sounds like they were recorded at the same session - which makes me dubious about the alleged story that this was recorded in a hotel room in the Bahamas. Tom Wilson has been credited with producing this disc.

Sadly, shortly after, the band imploded thanks to a large split in the band whereby Eric Burdon, Hilton Valentine and new drummer Barry Jenkins went overboard on LSD whilst Chas Chandler and Dave Rowberry were strictly beer men. The departure of original drummer John Steele a few months earlier had completely altered the band dynamic to the degree they simply couldn't work together any more. Not to mention discovering that manager Mike Jeffrey had conned them out of their earnings.

 ...oh yes, and the 'A' in Decca has the larger 'triangle'.

 Just uploaded another label variant for this 45 - font size of titles is slightly smaller, songwriting credits are not italicized, publishing credits are arranged differently. Matrix is XDRF-38153-T1-1C for the A-side.
