People! - I Love You (1968)

People! was a rock band originally formed in San Jose, California in 1965. They started out playing "Top 40" music like most artists but ended up releasing three albums of original material. Their greatest success came with a minor key hit single "I Love You", a song written by Chris White and recorded by The Zombies that never charted in the United States. The People! version of "I Love You", on the other hand, rose to number one in Japan (twice), Israel, Australia, Italy, South Africa, and the Philippines, and peaked at #14 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in June 1968.

Of interest to Chriatian rock fans Larry Norman was a member of the group early on and was involved in their first recording, the one presented here. This copy is from one of my own LP copies and I digitized it a number of years ago. The final track comprises all of side two of the LP and I have broken it into several tracks.
