This has got to be one of my all time favorite songs from the Sixites period. It was also one of my Dad’s favorites. I have no clue what it is about it that just clicked for us both, but it did then and still does for me.

As much as I loved the tune I never knew it was a Blue Eyed Soul cut until just a few years ago thanks to the Internet. ;-) Check out the official site of the Original O’Kaysions for a short biography.

Written by Ronald Killette and band member Wayne Pittman, this single by the North Carolina group, charted #6 R&B and #5 Pop in 1968 for ABC Records.

Trivia: The group, known as The Kays in 1967, has previously recorded this song for a local label in North Carolina before joining ABC  Records and changing their name to The O’Kaysions.

Musically Yours,
