  1. This little playlet was so different from anything else on the charts at the time. The seagulls squawking in the background contribute to the atmosphere too.

    According to Ellie Greenwich, co-"producer" Artie Ripp wasn't even in the studio at the time this was recorded.

  2. I can't even begin to imagine how wonderful that must have been! There's nothing like being near the ocean for a few days, but to be able to visit every day of the week - you were so lucky!!

    1. Well, as I was remarking to an old surf buddy today, it made high school years bearable!
