THE MYDDLE CLASS - DON'T LET ME SLEEP TOO LONG

 
THE MYDDLE CLASS - 'Don't Let Me Sleep Too Long' / 'I Happen To Love You' (Buddah Records BDA 150) 1966

The second Myddle Class 45 paired 'Don't Let Me Sleep Too Long' with 'I Happen To Love You'. The former song, even though credited to all five Myddle Class band members was actually a song made more famous by The Blues Project (Al Kooper is credited as the songwriter but the title of the song is 'Wake Me-Shake Me')
It was originally released on Tomorrow 7503 but re-issued on Buddah Records a couple of years later.

It's been written that The Myddle Class picked up on this song after gigging with The Blues Project. It should be noted that Al Kooper and The Blues Project are credited as arrangers on the label of the Buddah release.........whatever the matter, this song is a killer and needs to be heard!
As a footnote 'Don't Let Me Sleep Too Long' charted in the top 20 in San Bernardino, California during November 1966.

The flip 'I Happen To Love You' is a Goffin & King song. It's more famous as being an Electric Prunes offering but The Myddle Class were the first band to record it.

Both songs were produced by Gerry Goffin..... file under essential double sider.
