This song was originally recorded in 1965 by The Olympics, a doo-wop group who had hits with “Peanut Butter,” “Western Movies”and “Hully Gully.” Felix Cavaliere of The Young Rascals was listening to a New York Soul station when he heard The Olympics version. The Rascals liked it and played a sped-up version at their live performances. They recorded the song for Atlantic Rcords, and although the group did not like the outcome, famed producer Tom Dowd loved the rawness of it and that version was released, becoming a huge hit. One of the most exciting drummers of the ’60s is heard here: Dino Danelli.
