no longer for sale

This song was written by Al Kooper, Bob Brass, and Irwin Levine. They originally came together under publisher Hal Webman and his company We Three Music, though they eventually turned to freelancing songs they had written. During this freelance period, they sold "This Diamond Ring" to Aaron Schroeder for $300. They originally wrote it with The Drifters in mind. The Drifters turned this song down, so next Bobby Vee's producer Snuff Garrett picked it up. However, Garrett turned the song over to Gary Lewis instead.Gary Lewis (born Cary Levitch, name legally changed at age 2) is the son of comedian Jerry Lewis, who lived two doors down from producer Snuff Garrett's house. The recording session that produced this song was financed by Gary's mother, Patty Lewis.No Playboys play any instruments on the record - Garrett preferred to use veteran session musicians, including Leon Russell (piano), Tommy Alsup (guitar) and Hal Blaine (drums). Gary's lead vocal was "helped" by Garrett overdubbing the voice of session singer Ron Hicklin (sources disagree if the Playboys' voices also made it to the record).A1 This Diamond Ring A2 Dream Lover A3 All Day and All of the Night A4 Forget Him A5 Needles and Pins A6 Love Potion Number Nine B1 Keep Searchin' B2 The Birds and the Bees B3 Sweet Little Rock and Roller B4 Go to Him B5 The Night Has a Thousand Eyes B6 The Best Man
