Some Kind of Wonderful (mislabeled Some Kinda Wonderful) is Johnny Sandon's cover of the Drifters 1961 classic written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King. While Sandon's does not top the Drifters version in originality, the recording is gorgeous and full of British beat energy, bravado and walloping production. The original 45 is scarce. Fortunately, it was beautifully preserved and reissued in 1991 on the Best of Tommy Quickly (which is now also hard to find) and later on the Beat Beat Beat 5 CD series.
