Francis’ previous single “Lipstick on Your Collar / Frankie” was a big hit, with both sides in US Top 10. This one didn’t do quite as well.

I couldn’t find these songs in YouTube. Here is Maureen Evans’ cover of the flip.

Later on Eddie Curtis co-wrote “The Joker” for Steve Miller Band.

List price:  Very Good+ is $10, Near Mint is $20
