During 1966 the Association had two big hits, “Along Comes Mary” and the number one “Cherish.” Everyone has to start somewhere and so it was for The Association.
Their first release came drting 1965 when they released one single for the Jubilee label. “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You” received no chart action and little commmercial success. They were immediately dropped by the label, which worked out just fine for The Association.
The band hadn’t quite found the right formula but they would very shortly.
