Here’s a fabulous live version. It’s exceptionally well played by the entire band:

Here’s another live version, but this time with The Captain & Tennille in power trio format:

    I am not shamed to say that I bought this 45 when it came out. I loved the sound of the keyboards. I had no idea of the Captain's connection to The Beach Boys at the time.
