Chicago’s New Colony Six released seven singles on the Mercury label from 1967-1970. “Summertime’s Another Name for Love,” from 1968’s Revelations album, sounds like an obvious A-side to me – and yet it ended up being the B-side to “Can’t You See Me Cry.”
I especially enjoy the tantalizingly brief pizzicato passage in the song’s instrumental coda — as you will, too:
