- Although Bobby Sherman's "Early In The Morning" peaked at only #113 in 1973, it was a Hot 100 chart hit for both the Tokens and Gene Pitney in 1970 as "She Lets Her Hair Down (Early In The Morning)," the tune of which originated from a TV jingle for a shampoo. "She Lets Her Hair Down (Early In The Morning)" was also performed by Don Young in 1969, peaking at only #104.
- Bob Seger was born in Dearborn, MI and raised in Detroit. "Brand New Morning" was on the 1971 Bob Seger album "Brand New Morning" (Capitol ST-731), all selections of which were written and arranged entirely by Seger.
