The Wellingtons version was produced by Bobby Harshman, AKA Bobby Hart, and that's how it ended up being on The Monkees First LP. Don't know how The Hollies heard it tho.

They also appeared on a Gilligan's Island episode. They no doubt probably sang background on many sessions in LA during the '60's, just like the Blossoms!!!

It put The Rascals on the map. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
