Come Saturday Morning by The Sandpipers

Album: Forget Me NotsReleased: 1970Charted:
17
  • The Sandpipers were a quartet from Los Angeles. Three of them, Jim Brady, Mike Piano, and Richard Shoff, became friends while singing in the Mitchell Boys Choir and decided to pursue a career together. They were discovered by Herb Albert, who helped get them their big break. Joined by Pamela Ramcier, they produced a string of significant hits throughout the '60s, including covers of "Guantanamera" and "Louie Louie." This turned out to be their last major hit, and they split up in 1975.
  • This was the theme song to the Liza Minelli movie The Sterile Cuckoo, giving the song a huge boost. It played over the opening credits, which let viewers see the name of the song as it was playing. (thanks, Mike - Santa Barbara, CA, for above 2)
  • Dory Previn wrote the lyrics and Fred Karlin wrote the music. Previn was married to Andre Previn, and also wrote "Valley Of The Dolls." Karlin wrote many songs for movies and TV, including "For All We Know" for the movie Lovers and Other Strangers.

On October 26th 1969, Liza Minnelli performed "Come Saturday Morning" on the CBS-TV program 'The Ed Sullivan Show'...
Four days earlier on October 22nd, 1969 the movie "The Sterile Cuckoo" opened in theaters across the U.S.A.
And just under two months later on December 14th, 1969 the Sandpipers' version of the song entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 at position #84; and on June 7th, 1970 it peaked at #17 {for 1 week} and spent 20 non-consecutive weeks on the Top 100...
The Los Angeles-based quartet had three other Top 100 records; "Guantanamera" {peaked at #9 in 1966}, "Louie, Louie" {reached #30 in 1966}, and "Free to Carry On" stayed on the chart for 4 weeks, peaking at #94.

This song was nominated for Best Song at the 1969 Academy Awards {Lost to "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head" from the movie "Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid"}!!!Barry - Sauquoit, Ny
I'm sure this song was in movie I saw along time ago. Anybody know about that? I've always like the melody from the first I heard it. Sometimes it plays on the radio then I wonder what the name of the movie was.Sara - Eckerty, In
I'mnot sure about the recorded version by the Sandpipers as the definitive one(if there is one at all)
but this is a marvelous song...kudos to Fred Karlin may he RIP.
