Saturday Morning's Greatest Hits: Show & Tell (1973)

From Soul Train:

Al Wilson cracked the top of the pop charts in early 1974 with "Show & Tell", released as a single in October 1973. What you might not know is that "Show" was a cover of a minor Johnny Mathis record that reached the top 40 in 1972, and would be Mathis' last hit for a few years. Wilson's version also cracked the top 10 on the soul chart.

I remember hearing this on the radio quite a bit in the fall of '73, and wishing I could learn the lyrics, in case I ever landed a steady girlfriend. Unfortunately, I never did learn the song......
