Victor Crawl and the Purchase – “Now That You’re Mine” – 1965(?)

This song typifies what typically gets referred to as “60’s jangle pop.”  Around 2 minutes long, 12-string electric guitars, tambourines, harmonies – it’s all here.

It’s a fairly simple song describing the male singer’s (presumably, Victor Crawl) affection towards a girl and how she completes him.  Nice breakdowns between verses with harmony “oohs” behind the lead vocal.  A simple guitar solo starts out reflecting the melody-line but soon branches off into its own melody.  The song then wraps up tidily with a repeat of the chorus.
