“Baby, Now That I’ve Found You” is a song written by Tony Macaulay and John MacLeod. Part of the song was written in the same bar of a Soho tavern where Karl Marx was supposed to have written Das Kapital.

The lyrics are a plea that an unnamed subject not break up with the singer

In 1967, The Foundations released it as their debut single. When “Baby Now That I’ve Found You” was first released it went nowhere. Luckily BBC’s newly founded Radio 1 were looking to avoid any records being played by the pirate radio stations and they looked back at some recent releases that the pirate stations had missed. “Baby, Now That I’ve Found You” was one of them. The single then took off and by November it was number one in the British charts. It met with great success, becoming a number 11 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and topping the UK Singles Chart for two weeks in November 1967.[2] The song also reached #1 on the Canadian RPM magazine charts February 10, 1968.

Another version of the song was recorded by The Foundations in 1968 that featured Colin Young, Clem Curtis’ replacement. This was on a Marble Arch album that featured newer stereo versions of their previous hits.

Original lead singer of the Foundations, Clem Curtis recorded his own version of it and it was released on the Opium label OPIN 001 as a 7” single and a 12” version OPINT001 in 1987.

In or around the late 1980s, Clem Curtis and Alan Warner teamed up to recut “Baby, Now That I’ve Found You”, “Build Me Up Buttercup” as well as other hits of The Foundations.
