"Tell Someone You Love Them" (writer: B. Hinsche)
The last charted hit single for DD&B circa 1969. Billy borrowed some
musical ideas for this song from The Beach Boys' hit "Darlin'." Some of the chord changes and song structure were loosely based on this song. Performed for the first time in public.
"Stop, Look Around" (writer: R. Martin)
The single from the critically acclaimed album "Beached" (circa 1975) which was co-produced by Billy Hinsche and Carl Wilson.
"Lady Love" (writers: Brian Wilson / Billy Hinsche)
Written specifically for DD&B and was another charted single for the group circa 1968.
"Not The Lovin' Kind" (writer: Lee Hazelwood)
The second single charted hit for DD&B in 1965. Performed on The Ed
Sullivan Show. Lee Hazelwood was DD&B's record producer and later went on to his own solo career as a singer/songwriter. Also had a successful string of hits with Nancy Sinatra. Trivia: Will Lee (bassist for Paul Shaffer & The CBS Orchestra on David Letterman's TV show) named his own band The Lovin' Kind when he was a teenager living in Florida --- a direct reference to this song.
"I'm A Fool" (writer: Red West / Joey Cooper)
DD&B's first and biggest hit single in 1965. Performed on dozens of television shows including The Ed Sullivan Show. Trivia: Red West was one of Elvis' friends and bodyguards who patterned this song after "Don't Be Cruel." Joey Cooper was one of The Shindogs, the house band for the mid-sixties television show Shindig.
