Thank you John. It's an old favourite - used to buy old PJ's singles in the long ago, and this was perhaps the best of them. I think Goffin and King wrote it for the Righteous Brothers, and I like how Jim manages both Bill and Bobby's parts. And of course, the band and arranger were old hands at the Spector sound.
Cheers

Similar vibe, but unfortunately not the Wrecking Crew, Jack and Goldstar





and then there's this, if you don't mind a large helping of English cheese and mannered vocalese with your schmaltz

Thanks, R. I have that first one! (he's terribly flat in the first line)

The second is especially good.
