Warren Williams - Beautiful As You (1961)

(Gene Pitney)
Australia Australia
Original version?
#57 Sydney


Single on Leedon. Released December 1961 (George Crotty’s Festival discography), charted in Sydney February 1962.

This Gene Pitney composition seems to be an obscure one. So far I haven’t found any other versions, either by Pitney himself or by other artists. Please let me know if you know of any.

Beautiful As You is listed in Gene Pitney’s songwriting repertoire at BMI, and he copyrighted it with the US Copyright Office in August 1961.
