Record #0375: I Found a Girl / It's a Shame To Say Goodbye – JAN & DEAN

Liberty 55833 (original) USA, Sep. 8, 1965
Words & Music bySide A – P.F. Sloan, Steve Barri; Side B – Don Altfeld, Jill Gibson
Musicians: Jan Berry (vocals), Dean Torrence (harmony vocals on side B), Phil Sloan (falsetto on side A), Hal Blaine (drums) and unknown members of The Wrecking Crew
Recording sessions: Produced by Jan Berry at Western Recorders (?), Hollywood, CA, summer 1965
Highest chart positions:  US #30

By this time the duo's popularity was fading, but this Sloan-Barri song did still pretty good in the charts. "I Found a Girl" still sounds much like typical Jan & Dean stuff of 1963-64, but the flip is more like a folk-rock ballad.

Both tracks appeared on their 1965 album "Folk 'n Roll".

List price:  Very Good+ is $6, Near Mint is $12
