Song of the Day: The City – “That Old Sweet Roll (Hi-de-Ho)”

On February 9 we celebrated the birthday of Carole King, so today we’ll commemorate the birthday of her former songwriting partner and ex-husband, the late Gerry Goffin. Here’s a cool song, one that was a Goffin/King track for The City, which was a trio featuring King, Danny Kortchmar, and Charles Larkey. The group split after recording one album, 1968’s Now That Everything’s Been Said, but this track went on to be covered by Blood, Sweat & Tears and Dusty Springfield, among others.
