Only the Young

I first heard this tune as an instrumental on Chad & Jeremy’s first album. They called it “Only for the Young”. I’ve always really liked it.

It turns out it was first recorded by the Champs (remember “Tequila”?) in 1964 and was written by one of their members, Jimmy Seals. If that name sounds familiar, it is the same Jim Seals that was in Seals and Crofts.

It was later given words and recorded by Rick Nelson, among others. The Ventures recorded an instrumental version.

My arrangement includes the “B” section Chad & Jeremy added that is not in the original.
