"Long Haired Lover From Liverpool" was by Jimmy Osmond and nobody else. Mike Curb was a producer but the Congregation had no involvement.

The 7" Single record label will tell you otherwise. Also the official UK singles chart lists 'Little Jimmy Osmond with the Mike Curb Congregation' follow this link - https://www.amazon.co.uk/LITTLE-JIMMY-OSMOND-Haired-Liverpool/dp/B004I498UM
