Yet another huge hit in Albany, NY (#2 on WPTR during the summer of '66)
but apparently nowhere else.  This adaptation of an old gospel number
(the Blues Project did essentially the same song as 'Wake Me, Shake Me')
was recorded by the New York-based Myddle Class and appeared on Goffin
and King's short-lived Tomorrow label.  Singer David Palmer went on to
a brief tenure with the early Steely Dan lineup; bassist Charles Larkey
married Carole King.
