I first came across this as the B-side to a 78 of 'When I Fall In Love' when I was about 13.
One of my first experiences of hearing something a bit different I think. I wonder if many of Nat's easy listening fans (or their kids perhaps) were turned on to something a little hipper and groovier by flipping this disc in 1958?
