"Along Comes Mary"
                             (Tandyn Almer)
                [promo copies co-credit Curt Boettcher]

Jim Yester, in the liner notes to the Japanese _From The Original Master
Tapes_ CD (Warner/Pioneer WPCP-3536):

  This was the first national hit for the group, and established the
  "sound" of THE ASSOCIATION.  So unique was the arrangement that it was
  explored in depth on a television special by Leonard Bernstein.

Intro:

	[rhythm guitar plays xxxx55 (implicit Am/D9) on beats 2 and 4]

	[fuzz guitar (left channel) doubled with electric bass; clean guitar
	 (right channel) plays octave higher, doubled with acoustic bass]:
