THE KINGSMEN - '(I Have Found) Another Girl' (Wand WDM 675) January 1967

The Kingsmen from Portland, Oregon, need no introduction but a little known beat rocker from their 'Up And Away' album probably does. '(I Have Found) Another Girl' was a group original written by Dick Peterson and Barry Curtis but was strangely never released as a single despite it's glowing review from Mel Shayne, their Manager, on the back of the album cover.

Here's what Mel wrote:

'(I Have Found) Another Girl' which has hit potentiality, combines a wild pulsing beat with a strong harmonic blend. The tune was written by Dick Peterson in collaboration with Barry Curtis, currently serving in Viet Nam, whose original berth with The Kingsmen is being held for his return.
