SONNY & CHER - 'So Fine' (Atlantic 587006) April 1966

The follow up Sonny & Cher studio album 'The Wondrous World Of' didn't take too long to follow it's million selling predecessor and it's got plenty of tracks to get me interested in including fine versions of 'Summertime', a Kinks cover 'Set Me Free' and a version of 'Leave Me Be' originally recorded by The Zombies.

The last cut on side two is something of a surprise though. 'So Fine' has them at the 60s rockin' best and it's a direction they should have experimented with more often. The song was recorded much earlier in 1964 by English R'n'B group The Beat Merchants.

Once again, Gold Star Studios in Hollywood were used and according to the back cover credits, Sonny Bono arranged and produced all of the material.
