You bet- Count Me In and This Diamond Ring were a couple of 45's that my older siblings gave me and I soon wore out. My favorite song by Gary and the Playboys is Green Grass, because it's so happy. A close contender is called Girls In Love and it's an interesting change of style for them. I understand they performed at Disneyland- wish I had seen that.! awesome_band2

Love 'Count Me In' & 'Save your Hear for Me!'

It's really hard to pick my favorite because the album I had I love every one of their songs!  Of course originally I bought the LP - 33 1/3 way back when for "This Diamond Ring."  I bought the CD years ago because there is nothing about this album that I don't like!   smiley_whistling  smiley_thumbup

Gary's stuff is so good. I discovered this link-
www.garylewisandtheplayboys.com
It has a photo of Gary with Tony Curtis and at a party with the Beatles!

I didn't know who Gary Lewis & The Playboys were until Jerry Lewis introduced them on his telethon.

I also remember seeing them on the "Ed Sullivan Show".

I use to have his album, 78. Loved it so much that when it came out on CD I bought it.
