Jerry Fuller, who discovered and Produced the Union Gap, had heard his roommate Glen Campbell playing this record. It was a really country sounding record by Jim Glaser. Campbell was trying to decide what to record for his first big record, when he picked By the Time I get to Phoenix-Fuller asked, "Can I have Woman, Woman?" Campbell said take it and Fuller re-arranged as a big pop ballad to fit Puckett's voice. Jerry Fuller would write their next three hits, Young Girl, Lady Willpower and Over You.Coy - Palestine, Texas
On January 7th 1968, "Woman, Woman" by the Union Gap featuring Gary Puckett peaked at #4 (for 3 weeks) on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; it entered the chart on November 12th, 1967 and spent 17 weeks on the Top 100...
It was the group's debut record on the Top 100; their next three releases also made the Top 10; "Young Girl" (#2 for 3 weeks), "Lady Willpower" (#2 for 2 weeks), and "Over You" (#7 for 2 weeks), all four peaked in Top 10 during the calendar year of 1968...
Mr. Puckett celebrated his 71st birthday three months ago on October 17th.

I saw Gary Puckett last week at the NYS Fair in Syracuse. He was outstanding! I never realized what a hunk he was! He gave a moving tribute to Veterans and had all the vets stand up. Real class act!Chris Carnicelli - Auburn, Ny
@Dave--Sure you're not thinking about This Girl Is A Woman, Now?Patricia - Pueblo, Co
Gary and the boys only charted seven records but five of them made the Top 10; Woman, Woman {#4}, Young Girl {#2}, Lady Willpower {#2}, Over You {#7}, & This Girl Is A Woman Now {#9}. And "Don't Give In To Him" came close, peaked at #15!!!Barry - Sauquoit, Ny

A story goes that when the band was trying to plug this song, they took it to WLS Radio in Chicago and WLS listened to it...and refused to play it because they said it was too "dirty". From time to time, Gary Puckett dedicates this song to WLS and tells the story to audiences.Dave - Phoenix, Az
I've heard that the group's name came from Union Gap Washington near the city of Yakima.Madeline - Yakima, Wa
