According to the Sailing Songfacts, Stewart recorded his version of this Sutherland Brothers song at the Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama with a choir assembled by Bob Crewe, The Four Seasons’ producer. It became his third UK chart-topper and the following year, it was revived following it’s use as the theme music for a BBC TV documentary series about the HMS Ark Royal, this time peaking at #3. The combined sales of the 2 releases meant this is Stewart’s biggest ever selling single in the UK with 955,111 copies sold.
