It was a #57 national Billboard hit in February, 1970.

As I recall, it was briefly on all the Top 40 stations
around Boston. WBZ had gone to MOR by then, so I don't
think they played it, but it was on WMEX, WRKO, WKOX-FM,
etc... though not for long. A very minor hit that was
not played heavily, and that disappeared quickly.
