Additional Infos The song was originally written in 1963 as "Thinkin´ ´Bout You Baby", a record Brian produced for Sharon Marie, a girlfriend of Mike´s. Brian resurrected the song in 1967, rewrote it and named it "Darlin´", for his friend Danny Hutton, who up until that time, was best known for the 1965 hit "Roses and Rainbows". When the BB formed Brother Records 1967, the plan was that everybody would produce outside artists. Brian´s first signing was Redwood, a group formed by Danny Hutton. Brian originally cut this track for Redwood, but it and other Redwood recordings ere never released. Soon after, Redwood changed their name to Three Dog Night, picking up the mantle from the BB, became the most commercially successfull American band of its time.
