You Don't Know What You've Got [Until You Lose It]

by Don Norman



A song composed by Paul Hampton & George Burton in the early 60's.P & G thought it would be a perfect song for a "girl group".

They changed their thinking ASAP after Ral Donner booked his date at a Florida recording studio. That's because Mister Donner made their song a smash hit.

It seems way past time to revive this forgotten gem from 1961.
