"Sally Ann"

Words and Music by Mike Curb
Sidewalk 904

Mike Curb, who had written radio ads for Honda and had produced "Little Honda" by "The Hondells" wrote this song which sounded like a "Barbara Ann" knock off. With Phil Kasper's infectious, happy voice, the song had a light and catchy song-line. The band had jettisoned its bass player and song had a bass dubbed in.

 "The Riptides" played the backing track while Curb played the organ intro and hook throughout the song. Background vocals were recorded on two different tracks giving the song a dual, vocal depth. Lots of
fun to record and play, it was released on Curb's Sidewalk Records as Side A. It was recorded in the spring of 1966.
