California Nights 45 by Lesley Gore

June 12, 2012

Lesley Gore was one of America’s sweethearts during the 1960s. Beginning as a teenager she issued a series of hit singles, many of which placed high on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart.

“California Nights” was her last top 40 hit, reaching number 16 during the first half of 1967. It was more sophisticated than her early simple pop material, yet it was also catchy.

While the commercial success dried up during the 1970s, she has continued to tour and occassionally record down to the present day.
