Al Waples made his mark as a black radio DJ in his home base of St Louis, and eventually moved on to Philadelphia and Los Angeles. During his time in L.A he cut this one record, and also worked as the voice over announcer for the Jackson 5ive TV show.

The song is a very cool piece of pop-soul, written by the great L.A songwriter Jimmy Webb, and has the typical melancholy-yet-sunny feel of his greatest songs. The Incredibles, who back him here vocally, had several releases of their own on the Audio Arts label.

from 1968...
