The Outsiders-American

THE OUTSIDERS (American Band)
The Outsiders  was an American rock and roll band from Cleveland, Ohio, that was founded and led by guitarist Tom King.  The band is best known for its Top 5 hit “Time Won’t Let Me” in early 1966, which peaked at No. 5 in the US, but the band also had three other Hot 100 top 40 hit singles in 1966 and released a total of four albums in the mid-1960s.  Allmusic described the act’s style:  “Part of the secret behind the Outsiders’ musical success lay in the group’s embellishments [with horns and strings], which slotted in perfectly with their basic three- or four-piece instrumental sound. . . .  [H]owever bold and ambitious they got, one never lost the sense of a hard, solid band sound at the core.”   (More from Wikipedia)
