The group eventually grew unhappy with doing material written and produced by others, leading them to stop working with Fuller, and they disbanded in 1971. Now, there are certainly songs about “cheatin” on this record. I’ve known for as long as I can remember that “Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)” is about an adulterous affair. Maybe I never listened as well to the lyrics as I should have, though, because what the guy in the relationship does to the woman who leaves him, after he’s slept in her bathtub, is to light a fire at her place.

The break came for the group when Jerry Fuller, a former country music artist and a producer for Columbia Records in Los Angeles, heard them at a small bar where they were performing in a bowling alley complex. Fuller liked their sound and signed them to a contract. In 1974 " Young Girl" was reissued in the UK where it reached number five and achieved a Silver Record Award for the second time.

Keep the Customer Satisfied" (US Billboard #71, US AC #28) / "No One Really Knows" – Columbia 45303 – February 1971 This was followed during the next two years by " Young Girl" (No. 1 in Cashbox, No. 2 in Billboard), " Lady Willpower" (No. 1 in Cashbox, No. 2 in Billboard), " Over You" (No. 5 in Cashbox, No. 7 in Billboard), and " Don't Give in to Him" (No. 15). [4] All were produced by Fuller, who also wrote and composed "Young Girl", "Lady Willpower" and "Over You". Although the band never had a Billboard No. 1 record in the United States, "Young Girl" hit No. 1 on the UK singles chart for four weeks in May/June 1968. " Young Girl" was the second million selling disc for the band, which it reached less than two months after issue; "Lady Willpower" and "Over You" also won gold discs. [6] The band headlined at a White House reception for Prince Charles and Princess Anne [7] and at Disneyland in 1968, and was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 1969, losing out to José Feliciano. a b c d Rice, Jo (1982).
