June 25, 2017 Record of the Day

Carole King and husband Gerry Goffin wrote a song that she later regretted, saying she was sorry she ever had anything to do with it. That song was “He Hit Me (And It Felt Like a Kiss).” It was recorded by the Crystals in 1962. Having to do with spousal abuse, the record received little airplay. Released on Phil Spector’s Philles record label, a copy with a light blue label is worth up to $75.00 but a copy with an orange label can sell for $500.00 today.
