Timebox was a British 'mod' band; "Beggin'" (1968) is their cult hit. This track featured on Nova Classics 03.

Beggin' (1968) - Timebox

  • Beggin' (Farina, Gaudio) c/w
  • A Woman That's Waiting (Zagni, McCarthy)
  • Produced by Michael Aldred
  • Deram DM 194, released May 30, 1968
  • (USA: Deram #45-85031)

The first UK single with Halsey on drums. "Beggin'" was the band's only single to achieve minor chart success. It peaked at #38 in August, though some accounts indicate it sold more copies and received more airplay than its chart position suggested.

The song is a finely produced remake of the Four Seasons song with an extravagant orchestral arrangement. Note the reversal of writing credits on "A Woman That's Waiting" from those listed on the "Come On Up" single. --http://members.aol.com/PattoFan/tb_singles.htm
