Background: The Outsiders had a big hit in 1966 with “Time Won’t Let Me.” While they’re best remembered for that song, they also had three other songs reach the American Top 40, including “Respectable,” which was included on their second album.
The Outsiders launched themselves on the world with a killer single (“Time Won’t Let Me”) and an accompanying album that was one of the best debuts ever to come out of Capitol Records, at least from a U.S. band. The acid test was this, their second album which, as it turns out, was only marginally less impressive than their debut. . This album peaked at number 90 on the U.S. charts, which isn’t half as well as it ought to have done, based on the music it contained.
