 Following the hits by Scott McKenzie and the Flowerpot Men, this was the third song about San Francisco to reach the UK Top 10 in 1967, and a good song it is too.

The B-side is an absolute firecracker of a song. I too love the way it stops and starts again, especially since it has such a great riff. It was a non-LP track, which is a pity. It would make a terrific album closer!

 Good news Polydor did an ACTON PLAY re-release on their ownership of MGM and this pressing is yes, wait for it, tension mounts and excitement yes it's STEREOPHONIC and kicks, (sadly put the much better looking yellow on the shelf it looks right just naturally dosen't sound it)

Sadly Mickie Most was a numpty monophile, but now he's dead wrongs can be now righted. There are amazing DES (Digitaly Extracted Stereo) and Sync-Up mixes of most of the Animal's gems and they really do come alive.

This was a fab little belter and the into came from Eric's heart, the Animals were much much bigger in the USA than home MGM really did invest in them, The story goes at an MGM-EMI board meeting @ Manchester Sq (The Beatles EMI's golden gease) the MGM exe was a bit sour-puss saying they had nothing to release British wise in the US So Sir Joseph looking at that weeks charts said ok well you can have Herman's Hermits and The Animals for the USA the rest is USA (mickie most monoural) history!

The essential point of irony was that USA MGM had the rights to the Beatles old Hamburg Polydor titles and had milked them!
