In 1965, Goins left Korner to front another band, the Nightimers 
(or, sometimes, Night-Timers) (formed July 1964), after their 
singer Ronnie Jones left. The group quickly gained a reputation,
especially among Mods, as one of the hottest R&B bands in the UK.
Band members included Mick Eve (tenor saxophone) (born Michael Eve,
21 September 1937, Walthamstow, North East London), Mike Carr (keyboards),
Harry Beckett (trumpet), David Price (bass), Bill Stephens (drums),
and Speedy Acquaye (congas).[3] In 1966, Herbie Goins and the
Night-Timers recorded "No. 1 In Your Heart", written by Clyde Wilson 
(who recorded as Steve Mancha) and Wilburt Jackson, and first
recorded by Motown group The Monitors.
