Davis, I sure appreciate the wonderful memories you shared with me here and via email. It is so nice to know that there are people out there like you who remember my dad, the group and their hit song so fondly...and that it made such a lifelong impact on you. Thanks also for tracking down Marv and connecting us. I'll give my regards to Bakersfield when we are there this Sunday. :)

I am a lawyer in the inner-city Boston criminal courts and one of the things that I find relaxing is to listen to oldies. Not "recent" oldies, but going back to 1958-59-60. I distinctly remember that when I was in the 8th grade in Bakersfield Calif, I heard on the radio a song released by a Los Angeles group called The Safaris. This was May of 1960 and I remember the sound of the song, the clock ticking in the background, like it was yesterday. This was one of the best songs I had ever heard and even now, it is in my top all-time five oldies songs. To hear of the passing of your dad was very sad indeed. The Safaris could have gone on to bigger and better things but the record companies back then took such advantage of singing groups that most disbanded rather than endure the abuse. But Image of A Girl remains with me as if they released it the other day. It is one of those timeless songs. People nowadays say, well, how could you like songs from way back then? Well, way back then, at the time, was the present. May of 1960, then, was our present, so we liked the music that came from those years.
The Safaris were unique.
