The first single credited to 'Diana Ross and the Supremes'; better known
decades later as the theme from the American TV series 'China Beach'.

Available in true stereo on _Diana Ross and the Supremes' Greatest Hits
Vol. III_; on a good system you can hear those weird beeps bouncing all
around your room.  (You can also hear a couple of extremely crude splices
before each repeat of the chorus at the end.)

This is in Bb, but I think the 45 was sped up to B.  Anyone have an original
pressing to compare?
