Saturday Music Post - Reason to Believe

"Reason to Believe" was written and recorded as an album cut by Tim Hardin in the mid-1960s. It was covered on albums by The Youngbloods, Peter Paul & Mary, and even Peggy Lee, but it did not become widely known until Rod Stewart released it as a single in 1971. Interestingly, it was originally the A side of a record with "Maggie May" on the B side. Both were hits, but "Maggie May" made it all the way to number one on the Hot 100. Yes, I should have included that in my earlier post about two-sided hits.

The clips are at The Faculty Lounge. And because today is Kentucky Derby Day, there is a bonus clip at the bottom of the post.
