The Turtles actually recorded it first in `65 (it was on their first album released in Oct 1965) but didn't release it as a single until much later in 1970 when it was a hit for them. Barry McGuire recorded it shortly after the Turtles did in the fall of `65 and DID release it as a single then and had his hit with it first.

Some stuff about it.
