This was suppose to be the follow-up release to Little Girl, I haven't heard it, has anyone else?
I don't suppose it was on their LP, was it? A cover of the Lee Dorsey song?

This song was banned from being released so I'd very much doubt it was on their LP.
Q - Was there a follow-up to "Little Girl"?
A - Oh, yeah. We wrote something called "Get Out Of My Life", which they refused to release because, back in those days, the words, to them, were risqué. Funny thing is, we had cut the thing out in California and just left for the road immediately. We were in Frank Barcelona's office and we played the acetate of it and he goes "Oh, I hate that! (laughs) The words are so bad. That's such a bad image." I thought to myself, is he listening to all the other stuff there's on the radio. (laughs) Some of the stuff we did there were answers for "Little Girl" and written by the same guys...Bob and myself. It was never let out of the can until 20 years later...
Q - I can understand playing an acetate for the record company and for the manager, but, for your agency? Frank Barcelona must've yielded a lot of power.
A - Well, yes, because they were taking an active role. They looked over what was going on with their acts. I think they understand more of what the audience wanted out there than the record companies did. They understood that doing things onstage and having a good stage act meant a lot, to selling what you had to sell. In those days, if you weren't writing the stuff yourself, the only place you made your revenues was playing live...and, not only that but, we did that for him because we wanted to get his support against the record company, who refused to release it because they said it was to risqué and he agreed. You listen to it now and it's not at all. It's very teenage, but, it's certainly not offensive.
Which SoS's release could it be on?
Found out about a Syn. Of Sound LP that came out in the 80's on the Performance label, maybe that contains the song. It supposedly includes unreleased songs.
