  • Diamond considered this his first "Rebel Song," and it reflected his growing independence. Said Diamond: "This is the way I am, my boat is tiny and the direction it takes my not follow the standard routes, but if you like what you see, come on along and join me on this journey."
  • The British singer Lulu of "To Sir With Love" fame recorded this later in 1967.
