GRAPEFRUIT – \”C\’mon Marianne\” / \”Ain\’t It Good\” (RCA Victor 1716) July 1968

Continuing my Grapefruit trip with this, their third single. The top side was a cover of The Four Seasons \”C\’mon Marianne\” which is pleasant enough and had hit potential but it only climbed to #31 in the charts and was probably considered a disappointment after so much backing.

Better still is the nugget on the flip. \”Ain\’t It Good\” offers the listener fuzz, psych leads and close knit harmonies. I doubt if this side would have shifted more units than \”C\’mon Marianne\” though.
