bubblegum pop chart-toppers. Released towards the end of 1967, it peaked
at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for one week at the beginning of
February, 1968 and earned the group a gold record for over a million
copies sold. The record remained on the chart for three months, the first
U.S. number-one hit for the Buddah label
