"Playboy" by Gene and Debbe.

OK, more 60's one-hit wonders: Singer/songwriter Gene Thomas met young vocalist Debbe Neville in Nashville. They were signed by Acuff-Rose Music to record under the TRX label. Their one hit was a '68 Thomas composition that sold over a million copies, was awarded a Gold Record and peaked at #18. Very pleasant pop/country harmonies.

Yesterday's answer: "Doctor Robert". Love George's double-tracked guitar work. Some thought it was about "Speed Doctor" Robert Freymann, others believed it was about an unnamed dentist who introduced them to LSD. Gallery owner Robert Fraser was another theory and last ...but not least Bob Dylan (Robert Zimmerman) who first exposed the blokes to marijuana. Now we know it was John himself!
