"Yeh Yeh" is a Latin soul tune originally written as an instrumental by Rodgers Grant and Pat Patrick, and first recorded by Mongo Santamaría on his 1963 album "Watermelon Man". Lyrics were written shortly thereafter by Jon Hendricks of the vocal group Lambert, Hendricks & Ross.
The version by Georgie Fame & the Blue Flames went to the top of the UK Singles Chart in January 1965 (breaking The Beatles' long-term hold on the number one spot of five weeks with "I Feel Fine"), and a month later appeared on the US Billboard pop singles chart to peak at #21 (the US single edited out the saxophone solo break.)
