    I played along with Johnny’s backing track a couple of times and then recorded this version, I have a hard time playing ballads, but it was fun working on being “airy” in the low notes. I remember when this song first came out (1964) I was 6, my parents played this 45 all the time on the console stereo in the living room. I grew up in the beach communities (Huntington, Seal and Long Beach) and several times we were at the same restaurants as both Bill and Bobby, my mom would act like a groupie and go fawn over Bill, it was embarrassing LOL!!! I saw Bill at the OC airport a few years back and said “hi”, we stood out in front waiting for rides and chatting for a bit, nobody knew who he was, told him I missed his club in Fountain Valley (Bill Medley’s Music City), it closed in ’93. I know a few musicians who played in the house band (Wayne Wayne and Don Hawkins – both sax players) he remembered them, mostly getting high with them! Nice guy, huge talent.

    I love it, Mike! Very light and langorous to start – almost lazy – then comes bittsa bite and rasp and then to a fully bright on signature.. it’s very moving and certainly played masterfully. Ya, itz a deep, abiding and honest take. To lovely. Thanking you. 🙂
