Album: Then You Can Tell Me GoodbyeReleased: 1967Charted:
This was written by the Country singer/songwriter John D. Loudermilk. Some years before The Casinos recorded it, Loudermilk tried to release his own version of it, which flopped. Later, Johnny Nash released a version, which also flopped.
This was the Casinos' very first hit. It took the group 9 years to obtain it. (Funny enough, the group consisted of 9 men and it took them 9 years to receive their first hit!).
Other artists who have covered this song were Eddy Arnold, William Bell, Perry Como, the Manhattans, Johnny Mathis, Neal McCoy, Daniel O'Donnell, Johnny Tillotson, and Andy Williams.
