  1. Agree wholeheartedly re: Paul Jones. I prefer their “Little Red Book” over Love’s just due to Jones’ pipes.

    They’re being on Prestige is weird, kind of like when I found a Soupy Sales record on Motown a couple of weeks ago.

  2. This was their first US release, so it predated their association with the Ascot label, which only started later in 1964 with “Do Wah Diddy Diddy”. So no mystery about that aspect of it.

  3. Scott Walker a “vocalist of the British Invasion”? Well, he was, and still is, an Anglophile, and we Brits love him, but of course he’s from Ohio via LA.

  4. Actually, though the Walkers were all Yanks (all getting their starts in LA), their career was launched from the UK, and their group hits are widely considered part of the British Invasion. They all continued their careers in the UK after the dissolution of the group, with Scott hosting his own TV show and Gary forming Gary Walker and the Rain.
