Performed in acoustic sets in 1970 with Weir and Garcia sharing lead vocals & Everly harmonies.

After Everly Brothers initial success with Bye Bye Love the Bryants were asked to write another Bye Bye Love. This was the result. Recorded by the Everly Brothers on 16th Auguest 1957 and released in September 1957 with Maybe Tomorrow on the flip side.

The lyrics were 'toned down' before the Everly Brothers recorded the song but it was still banned on some radio stations in the US.
