Album information[edit]

Shortly after their single "I Got You Babe" had reached number 1 on both sides of the Atlantic, Sonny Bono quickly put together an album for himself and Cher to release in late 1965 to capitalize on its success. Much like the single, this album was also a hit, peaking at the number 2 position on the Billboard 200 for 8 weeks.[4] It also went top ten in the UK, reaching #7.[5] Other than "I Got You Babe", the album contains the Billboard Hot 100 top 20 hit single "Just You" and the minor hit single "The Letter", which peaked at #75.

The cover was designed by Haig Adishian and photographed by Robert W. Young.[6]
