Beach Baby by The First Class (1974)

Beach Baby byThe First Class (1974)
"Beach Baby" is a song by the British band The First Class. The song, written by John Carter and his wife, Gillian (Jill) Shakespeare, became the band's only substantial hit.

Because of the song's length of being over 5 minutes, several AM radio stations edit the song by fading it out during the second instrumental Bridge.

In 1974, the song became a hit in the UK (where it peaked at #13), and in the US, where it peaked at #4. In Canada, "Beach Baby" was a #1 hit.
