IT'S ALL RIGHT (YOU'RE JUST IN LOVE) * THE TAMS * HMV 1298 * UK
The Tams were originally Joseph and Charles Pope, Floyd Ashton, Robert Smith and Willie Rutherford ( Horace "Sonny" Key replaced Rutherford after he was sent to prison) the groups first recording was Vacation Time for the Heritage label in 1961. It's All Right (You're Just In Love) is the B side of You Lied To Your Daddy which was The Tams second release on the ABC Paramount label in March 1964 (see below) and subsequently on the British HMV label.
A top notch mid-tempo group sound with the achingly emotionally rich voice of the legendry Joe Pope leading and some great vocal interplay backing building to a dramatic climax throughout the song puts this cut in the super league. The song was covered in Jamaica by Derrick Harriott, produced and released by him on his Crystal label and by Slim Smith, produced by Sonja Pottinger (see below).
