The movie's title song, "Little Sister" was originally recorded by New York studio musicians but the producers were not happy with the vocal performance (rumored to be songwriter Norman Gimbel
himself). They turned to executives at MGM Records who suggested that members from their newly signed star group, Orpheus, re-record the song. The producers agreed and the Orpheus version was recorded at Bell Sound Studios in New York. Only Orpheus lead singer, Bruce Arnold and backup singer, Jack McKenes were on the track since the music had been pre-recorded. However, future Orpheus member and legendary studio musician, Bernard Pretty Purdie
, plays drums on the song's backing track. See more
