THE EIGHTH DAY – \”Hey Boy! (The Girl\’s In Love With You)\” / \”A Million Lights\” (Kapp K-862) October 1967
I wrote about The Eighth Day several years ago. Here\’s a link to my previous entry with full information about the group and their releases. https://www.opulentconceptions.com/2013/04/the-eighth-day-building-with-steeple.html
I recently completed my collection of Eighth Day records with their first two 45s and album on Kapp Records. \”Hey Boy! (The Girl\’s In Love With You)\” was chosen as the debut single and perhaps album sampler. The number written by the Dante – Allan team is a radio friendly pop nugget with brass and choice harmonies / vocal interplay by the group, who at times sound like a cross between The Association and The Cowsills.
More interesting for me is the flip \”A Million Lights\” which is typical \’67 bouncy harmony pop and perhaps should have been the top side. Another number written by the Dante – Allan partnership.
