			     "Goodbye Columbus"
				(Jim Yester)

Jim Yester, in the liner notes to the Japanese _From The Original Master
Tapes_ CD (Warner/Pioneer WPCP-3536):

  Written for Paramount Pictures, this was the title song for Ali McGraw's
  first major film.  A great exercise in songwriting, after viewing early
  film rushes in New York, the group returned to L.A.  to write, produce,
  and record our part of the music score in an amazingly short period of
  time.  [A rejected Kirkman/Alexander composition was reworked into
  _The Association_'s "Goodbye Forever".]
