My Girl (Sounds of Soul, 1967)

Smokey Robinson, Ronald White

A cover recorded by the Peter's band, Sounds Of Soul, sometime during the 1967/8 period, and probably representative of the sort of material the band was performing at the time. All three of these songs were recorded on single-sided 10" acetate from Gotham Recording Corporation in New York City. A second single-sided 10" from the same period included three originals by the band - that material does not circulate. Sounds of Soul was the band that Peter had quit the Barracudas to join during the middle of 1967.

"My Girl" really needs no introduction, though it is somewhat ironic that Ace Frehley's post-KISS band, Frehley's Comet also covered this song - it wouldn't make it past demo/rehearsal stage either. The song had been a #1 hit for the Temptations in 1965.
