What a gorgeous tune, the triumphant intro of brass and piano, falls away leaving an bewitching girl vocal to take to the air.

Marion Stewart 'I Must Be Losing You' on "R" Records utilized the same compelling backing track as this 1965 release, with most preferring this rarer original 1965 version.

Pulling heavily from the influence of New York and those muscular Brill Building productions, a heavenly girl choir hang in the air as La Reine pleads for her man not to abandon her love. Convincingly sung with imploring passion reserved for a despairing girl in love. Expressive and brilliantly played out, leaving you requiring at least one more play to take in all the elements, filing the studio that daty.

As New York big production girl tunes go, this is undoubtedly one of the very strongest, and so challenging to acquire.
