  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn April 9, 1966, the Beau Brummels performed their covered version of "One Too Many Mornings" on the Dick Clark ABC-TV Saturday-afternoon program, 'American Bandstand'...
    One month later on May 29th, 1966 the song entered Billboard's Top 100 chart at position #96, the next week it peaked at #95, and the following it remained at #95, that was also it's third and last week on the Top 100...
    Between December 1965 and June 1966 the San Francisco-area band had six records on the Top 100 chart, one made the Top 10, "Just A Little"*, it peaked at #8 {for 1 week} on May 30th, 1965...
