Life Has It’s Little Ups And Downs b/w Shimmering Eyes
Columbia #4-45358 Released 1971
Maybe you’ve got better things to do with your time than to listen to Gary Puckett non-LP solo 45s. Well, lucky you but it’s your loss. The voice is in full effect here, affecting the listener with his soaring pipes over an adult pop production that sounds like pure 1971.
And where were the Union Gap? Phased out by a dazed out rock audience? They’re definitely not on the b-side which has a soft acoustic guitar feel with a hint of orchestra and Gary’s vibrato sounding not unlike Johnny Mathis.
Gary Puckett also released a solo LP entitled “The Gary Puckett Album” in 1971 that did NOT feature either side of this 45.
