This is one of  the better guitar and voice recordings of the song I’ve heard, featuring impassioned vocals that include inspired scatting and a muted trumpet solo impression. Very nice, Ms. Martelet! You are a gifted entertainer.

John Sebastian-Henry Diltz-1969 (1a)

* Somewhat surprising is the incidental detail provided by Sebastian in the same account, that at some stage of the tour (in the South), the groups were traveling together on a school bus(!) which was “pretty decrepit.” The poor quality of the vehicle is odd given that between August 1964 and June 1965, the Supremes had scored five consecutive #1 pop hits, a string of chart toppers broken finally by the July 1965 release of “Nothing but Heartaches,” which stalled at #11. Having a Supremes single peak at such a dreadfully low chart position so aroused the ire of Motown chief Berry Gordy that he responded by having the following memo circulated around the Motown offices:

We will release nothing less than Top Ten product on any artist; and because the Supremes’ world-wide acceptance is greater than the other artists, on them we will only release number-one records.

Another factor that makes the decrepit school bus transportation of the Supremes and the Lovin’ Spoonful in the summer of 1965 seem odd is that Motown head Berry Gordy had, according to his own account, consummated a love affair with Diana Ross in April 1965 at the conclusion of the 1965 Motortown Revue UK Tour.

** The page on Kama Sutra KA 208 at contains the notes “BB Feb 19, 1966,” and “BB Feb 26 – entered Hot 100, reached no. 2 (Apr 9).” According to the Wikipedia page on the song, Kama Sutra KA 208 was issued on 19 February 1966.

*** The site and others give the season as number 20, while has it as number 19.
