The original artist is an iconic singer-songwriter and pianist who has composed the scores to many films, including several for Disney-Pixar.
This brokenhearted song was included on his debut album in 1968, and only 4 months later, The Shadow band included their version on their debut.
This wouldn’t be the last of his songs covered by The Shadow band. A couple years later, they took one of his songs to the top of the charts, though it was originally written for – and recorded by – Eric Burdon and the Animals.
The 5 O’Clock Shadow is presented by Flying Dog Brewery.
