Nice stuff...optimistically released in Britain at the time where it sold about 4 copies! Now worth an absolute fortune!

Two songs that were covered in Britain at the time by our own (sadly departed) Lita Roza...the first one she hated!

First ever song that used the 'phasing' effect - unintentionally created by playing two copies of the track simultaneously when both were out of sync...
