This one is the quintessential summer song. It was his highest charting record on the hot 100, peaking at #10. In my opinion Billy was one of the finest vocalists who should've had a much bigger and longer career but sadly he passed away just a few years after this monster hit. Most people would argue that this is the best version of the song, and I would have to agree. Personally I prefer the longer version but this is the way it was heard on radio way back in July of 1966. One thing I love about the promo 45 for this one is that it is a one sided disc which I've always found to be very cool (you knew which side the record company was pushing!). I've actually had another copy of this from a radio station that played it as a current, however their copy was a regular stock issue -- imagine that! Also, I'm not sure how well you can see it, but in the background of the label, all over it, are the words FOR PROMOTIONAL USE - NOT FOR SALE. I love promo copies! Enjoy!
