GAMES PEOPLE PLAY * BOB ANDY * DOCTOR BIRD 1191 * UK

Written by Nashville song writer Joe Souter, a.k.a. Joe South, who is famous on this site for writing Untie Me recorded by the Tams. The song Games People Play was, it seems, popular in Jamaica at the time as Winston Francis also cut an excellent version for Coxsone Dodd the same year, this recording was, if the name on the label has the relevance I think it has, produced by Richard Khouri, probably at Federal studios.
