The Grant-penned "Baby Come Back" had initially featured on the flip side of the Equals' "Hold Me Closer" single. That record had not captured much attention, but, in early 1968, the B-side was subsequently released as a single in Germany, where it proceeded to tear to the top of the chart. The rest of Europe equally fell under its spell, before the song was finally reissued in the U.K., where it soared to number one. Even the U.S. was impressed, and the single backed its way into the Top 35 that September. It was the perfect party piece, and, in fact, the song actually includes appropriate party noises in the background. Guitarists Grant and Derv Gordon lather on the Byrds-esque licks, while vocalist Lincoln Gordon keeps the lyrical pleas lightweight, in keeping with its pop format. "Baby Come Back" remains the Equals' greatest song. Years later, in 1984, Grant re-recorded it for his Going for Broke album, keeping it remarkably true to the original. The guitars still twang, but the song now boasts Grant's signature synthi-drum sound, and although the party is now long over, the artist adds a further emotional punch to the vocal delivery, making it nearly as rowdy as its predecessor.
