Green Grass 45 by Gary Lewis and The Playboys

“Green Grass” was Gary Lewis’ seventh and last top ten hit. While he would continue to have chart hits for the next three years, none would enter the top ten.

“Green Grass” was also his seventh release. It was issued May 14, 1966 and reached number 8 on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart.

It was typical of their sound. It was light weight, mid-tempo pop/rock. It was the light side of music in the mid to late 1960’s as the world and its music were changing. Still, like all of his best material it remains a pleasant, if innocent listen.
