Very big in Britain (#1), but he started to become big here just as his American success was tailing off, so that may be why you don't know his version...

Not really much between the two, truth be told...

The David Cassidy version is also the only version I know, and the only one to hit Dutch Top 40 (peaking at #12 in 1972). Others didn't even make bubbling under section.
