 Mercury MF 906 is another Paul Simon song, the better known 'I Am A Rock' by Mike Scott (not currently on 45cat). A Reg Guest production with fuzz guitar even! This MF 883 being a 'P. Simon' song too shows Mercury were taking interest in his songs at the same time.

 that's my thread on that site trying the direct approach. the TGR 45 is a pretty average folk pop performance but with P. Simon credit & issued late 1965 & his 1965 Songbook & similarities to 'I Am A Rock' it's one that needs finding out, just for the collector interest in. Their 'Nowhere Man' isn't a version you'd prefer over the Beatles. Perhaps TGR were just a studio group?

 Playing devil's advocate here because I'm far from being a Paul Simon expert and NOBODY seems to know a lot about Three Good Reasons, but are you absolutely sure the "P. Simon" here is actually THE Paul Simon?

 This is an unknown Paul Simon song. Why Mike Hawker gets a credit is unknown & it's credited to Flamingo Music which is a Mercury-Philips publishing company. It doesn't appear on the Mike Hawker song listing on Discogs. Did he buy it from Paul Simon? Any ideas?

 This male/female group's subsequent 45 (the more well known Nowhere Man) sees them adding the "The" to Three Good Reasons.
