Yes a great track. The background arrangements are classic. Can't believe it was just a B side.

Absolutely one of my favorite J&D songs. How this never made it on an album, Iíll never know. The instrumental in the middle with the oboes is classic! The police sirens fit perfectly in there. First time I heard this was on a 2 album collection called Legendary Masked Surfers Rarities. It was the last song on side 1 with the other songs from 1958-1962.

Was originally B side to From All Over the World. I can't quite place the song in the order of things. But one of my favourites.
