Record #0627: There! I've Said It Again / The Girl With the Bow In Her Hair – BOBBY VINTON

Epic 5-9638 (original) USA, Nov. 3, 1963
Words & Music bySide ARedd Evans, David Mann; Side B – Bobby Vinton
Musicians: Bobby Vinton (lead vocals), orchestra & chorus conducted by Stan Applebaum (side A) and Robert Mersey (side B)
Recording sessions: Produced by Bob Morgan in New York, NY (?), 1963
Highest chart positions:  US #1, US AC #1, UK #34, New Zealand #1, Canada #5

This was the "last US #1 single of the pre-Beatles era", ie. this is the one that was pushed down from the pole position by the Beatles' first US #1 entry "I Want To Hold Your Hand" (on Feb. 1, 1964).

This was Vinton's third US #1 hit and he had one more with "Mr. Lonely" (1964).

I think I also have the picture sleeve for this.

List price:  Very Good+ is $6, Near Mint is $12; Picture Sleeve is $7.50 and $15 correspondingly.
