The follow-up to The Buckinghams' debut chart-topper, "Kind of a Drag,", "Don't You Care" (written by Gary Beisbier, James William Guercio & Jim Holvay and produced and arranged by Guercio) continued with the formula of brass rock meets easy listening to create roughly two minutes and thirty seconds of some of the best ear candy to be found on AM radio in 1967. Recorded for their second LP, "Time & Changes", "Don't You Care" was released as their 1st single on the Columbia label and became the second top 40 hit for The Buckinghams in 1967 when it found its way to the #6 spot on Billboard's Hot 100 in March. It was followed by three more hits, "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy" (#5), "Hey Baby (They're Playing Our Song)" (#12) and "Susan" (#11), in that same year and then The Buckinghams disappeared from the Top 40 forever. But for that one year The Buckinghams got so much airplay they were named by Billboard magazine as "The Most Listened to Band in America". Whether they were or not can surely be debated when you consider the competition for that year (Beatles, Stones, Supremes, Monkees, Paul Revere & The Raiders, Turtles, and on and on), but it's for sure that someone was listening to "Don't You Care" as it spent 14 weeks on the charts and ended up in the #39 spot for the year.
