    It’s interesting to hear the original. Not so very different to the familiar Pentangle cover.

      I did not know that Pentangle also sang this. I went looking and found it on youtube. They are similar in many ways. The Jaynetts had no other hits.

      Pentangle’s version was in 1969. I might have missed it as I was in Ghana. I’m glad I got to listen. It’s a really good cover.

    Grace Slick and The Great Society do my favorite version of the song. It just lends itself perfectly to the San Francisco/Summer of Love sound. And notice the image at 3:13. Looks rather familiar don’t you think? 🙂

      I hadn’t ever hearted this version before this. Right away it is a totally different song for a different time than the original. The psychedeilic colors emphasize that though I could have done without Sally scantily clad among her yellow roses.

      Wow, that is distinctly familiar!

    I’ve always been familiar with the Pentangle version, as I have the record ( I think). I need a record sorter. I never heard Grace Slick’s version. Ah, the summer of love in SF– I arrived after that period– but the many things in the Haight haven’t change–yet.
    I think my favorite is the Pentangle Version.
