(Nov. 23, 2012): The Contours – First I Look At The Purse

From the 1965 7″ single, First I Look At The Purse/Searching For A Girl.  This tune was written by Smokey Robinson and Bobby Rogers for the Contours.  It opens with Bobby Rogers doing the falsetto and then the Contours take it away.  It is the last Contours hit with Billy Rogers. It is probably best remembered for the cover by the J. Geils Band from their debut album, although David Bromberg and Rod Stewart covered it too.
