Love Me Again was written by Lee Freeman and Ed King - sung by Lee Freeman - It was one of two songs written by them on our third album. I loved them both as well as Lee Freeman's Wooden Woman. The other song is A Million Smiles Away...a gem too!
Ed did some great double tracked guitar work on all three songs.
Love Me Again has an obvious influence from our having just done two Beach Boy's tours with The Buffalo Springfield. Ed captured that magic that happens between Stephen Stills and Neil Young playing off each other.
Lee Freeman sang lead on all three of those songs. Love Me Again had that Righteous Brothers influence.
The reason it's dubbed a lost gem is because the manager, producer and record company were hell bent on releasing the more lush, commercial and middle of the road stuff as singles for radio airplay, such as Barefoot in Baltimore and Sea Shell...the latter of which was written by John Carter and Tim Gilbert who wrote the lyrics to Incense and Peppermints.
These kinds of mistakes distanced the SAC from our core audience.
The band had no control of the situation.
The best songs on the third album were the ones the band wrote. There were outside songs that we were forced to play and sing along with a string and brass section conducted by George Tipton.
Completely out of character for the SAC.
Barefoot got into the Billboard Top 100 but I think Love Me Again or A Million Smiles Away would have fared better. Just sayin...
