Apparently from a Teen Move where "All the songs are written by the kids themselves..."

Both sides are from the soundtrack to the movie "Feelin' Good" from 1966:

Here is info about the songwriter (and director of the movie):

http://www.newplaywr.../bios/pike.html

Here's what he had to say about the Montclairs in this interview:

"The title song, "FEELIN' GOOD," had a soulful, driving rhythm, so we asked the Montclairs to perform it, along with one of their standards, George and Ira Gerschwin's "Summertime." [...] I don't remember their names, but The Montclairs, were three velvet-voiced Black singers (two of whom looked like twins), backed by a White, jazz trio. When they won the 1965 JayCees Battle of the Bands, they also won cameo performances in "FEELIN' GOOD."

Thanks for the information - I was wondering what 'Montclairs' this lot were ie. the HUOYL ones on PAULA or the 'Wait for me' ones on Sunburst . Maybe a completely different group altogether .

Not 'Northern' and best described as a Mod/Garage type sound .

regards .
