Not sure when this record was released, but very likely in 1964. Both songs produced by Robert Hafner. The A side is written by Hafner, and the B side is written by Dorinda Morgan, husband of Hite Morgan. The Morgans owned a recording studio, which is where the Beach Boys cut their first few songs (including "Surfin'" and "Surfin' Safari"). This is one of two single the band released on the Hall of Fame label. The other was "Skate Board" b/w "Ye, Ye" (HOF 418).The Alley Kats (here listed as The Alleykats) also released a single on the Impact label, "Barbie" b/w "Lollipops" (Impact 31) which is also highly collectible. The band was first known as The Dimension, and then the New Dimension. When they started adding vocals to their act, they became The Alley Kats. Shortly after the band broke up, founding members Michael Lloyd and Jimmy Greenspoon would form The Rogues. Lloyd and Greenspoon would then later form The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band and Three Dog Night, respectively. This record was produced by Robert Hafner, who also produced the surf band The Revels among other acts.The vinyl is in EX+ condition. Super high gloss, and no scuffs (just a very light paper scuff on the A side is noticeable). The A side label is clean, with no writing, stickers, or tears, EX+ condition. The B side label has stains, but no writing or stickers, that's in VG+ condition (because of the small tear at the top--see photo). This is an extremely rare record--especially in this beautiful condition. The band's other single, on the Impact label, is a bit more common.
