harpers bizarre "fellin’ groovy" 1967

Harpers Bizarre was formed out of The Tikis, a band from Santa Cruz, California that had some local successes with Beatlesque songs in the mid 1960s.[1] The Tikis had been signed to Tom Donahue’s Autumn Records from 1965 to 1966 and had released two singles on that label.[2] In 1967, record producer Lenny Waronker got a hold of the Simon & Garfunkel song “The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy)”, determined to make it into a single. The Tikis recorded it, with the arrangement featuring extended harmonies reminiscent of the work of Brian Wilson or even the Swingle Singers. The song was released under a new band name, “Harpers Bizarre” (a play on the magazine Harper’s Bazaar), so as not to alienate The Tikis’ fanbase.[1] The Harpers Bizarre version of the song reached #13 on the American Billboard Hot 100 chart in April 1967,[3] far exceeding any success that The Tikis thus far had.
