Song: Just Walk Away
Writers: Gary Usher & Raul Abeyta
Producer: Gary Usher
Purchase The Castells and Beyond 1964 - 1966 here.
Credit should go to Rich from SunshineTunes67, who first shared this song in 2009, along with a bonus demo version. I highly recommend a auditory stroll through his epic sunshine pop YouTube posts.
I had the soaring, cinematic Just Walk Away on continuous repeat for about 2 weeks after I first heard it. Just Walk Away, with a monumental Chuck Girard vocal, double bass, and Wrecking Crew backing (unconfirmed), is my favorite Gary Usher composition and production. Not only was the song not a hit, but it probably sold about 5 copies in 1965, judging by the scant availability of this 45 on the used vinyl market. This would definitely be in my top 10 " this should have been a hit" list.
