Larry Evoy was a fine lead singer for a band aligned with the very popular, soft-rock sub-genre that was huge in the 1970s and he was the only member who was in the lineup throughout their entire history (1966 - 1974).
Edward Bear was not the kind of outfit to earn respect from critics. Their music was too sweet sounding and their their image was even more of a problem (They took their name from Winnie The Pooh's proper name). Nevertheless they became a favorite of the usually very edgy and bloody Quentin Tarantino (go figure)!
I'm not one to listen to sappy radio singles but Evoy's vocal, the melody, and the fact that AM radio played this song to death during a very happy period in my life made me quite fond of it.
