Tokens, The Portrait Of My Love Comments
  1. Music and Songs

    Original Traducción

    There could never be
    A portrait of my love
    For nobody can paint a dream
    You will never see
    A portrait of my love
    For miracles are never seen

    Anyone who sees her
    Soon forget the Mona Lisa
    It would take I know, a Michaelangelo
    And he would need the glow of dawn
    That paints the skies above
    To try and paint a portait of my love

    Original version by Matt Monro (1960): .

  3. Allan R.

    Different arrangement for vocals and instruments than Steve Lawrence. The Tokens were involved with The Happenings who recorded for B T Puppy (BT=Bright Tunes). The Happenings hits had similar type production & arrangements to this excellent Tokens remake.

    Thank you so much beatandpop for uploading this masterpiece.
    It's not easy to find this actual 45 version.
    The Tokens do an absolutely amazing job here. 👍
    I remember as a kid watching The Tokens on several different TV shows before they had this hit in 1967. I've always dug them.
    Their cover of "Portrait Of My Love" is by far and away the best version. One of my favorite songs of all time (that is when The TOKENS do it).
    It got some airplay here in the New York City area, but it really should have been played more, and it should have peaked a lot higher than #36 on the Billboard Hot 100.
    The Tokens should be appreciated a lot more! 😃

  6. Walter Bendick

    Best harmony ever!!!!!

  7. Dane Volyn

    I was listening in 1967 and this one is the original!

  8. Ken Musillo

    Steve lawrence had a hit with this

  9. Dresden5

    So great

  10. Messy Potamia

    At least this is the original recording. Wish I could get the original in stereo.


    I have it ! on an original Stereo LP from the good ol' days...


    @RockinProfessor This IS stereo. The album "It's A Happening World" has been reissued by Real Gone Music. The Taragon "Very Best of the Tokens" unfortunately is out of print.
    Interesting fact: On each of these reissues (I have them both), the stereo channels are reversed from each other!

  11. TitaScorpio

    Just the fact that they pronounced 'portrait' (por-tret) they way they did, instead of how it was previously pronounced by other singers, including Steve Lawrence as "poor-traiit ' - omg that irked the hell outta me - but yea - they got it hands down! lol

  12. videoarchiveman

    Steve Lawrence owns this song!!!


    videoarchiveman: Get a new pair of ears. The Tokens own this song hands down!

    A true gem of a tune. Just beautiful. Great memories.

  15. groovinmoose

    aside from The Lion they certainly deserved more recognition check out "Please Write" by these guys..and..right you are ric 63...great vocals...Jay Siegel and the boys are truly in '''tune''

    David Nelson

    +groovinmoose Thanks for the lead to "Please Write." It did not disappoint. I had never heard it before, but the high quality is predictably consistent (thank goodness).

    I have loved "Portrait of my Love" since it first came out, decades ago -- and have found myself humming it over the years -- never to be forgotten. It was a HUGE HIT on the radio -- heard it constantly for weeks. Almost as much as that classic, "The Lion Sleeps Tonight."


  16. ric 63

    A marvellous composition, why didn't this song and group have greater success?

  17. Evan Dahill

    THIS is the original . . . I'm trying to get it on Amazon Music and the link above is a b.s. re-recording!!

  18. Jonathan Schult

    47 years hence and I still get goose bumps listening to this!!  One of those "should've been a smash" records which only limped into the top 40, but a classic nonetheless.

  19. Mikey Maff

    NOBODY did this song like THESE guys did it….Not even CLOSE


    +Mikey Maff I agree......& as often as "La Bamba" was covered, The Token's version sits at the very top of the heap !

    Mikey Maff

    The Tokens could croon JB :)

  20. IcemanE52

    I dedicate this song to my wife for our upcoming 33rd anniversary!

  21. Walt

    Great song

  22. Moonlighthasmehooked

    I agree that Steve Lawrence sang it better. I heard the Tokens sing this recently and I didn't remember their having a hit with it.

  23. Ancilla Vandeburgt

    Steve Lawrence sang it better


    Ancilla: If you like being put to sleep!!


    But Matt Monro sang it first.

  24. 4thstooge

    I don't know about the Beach Boys, But this song is as good as the major hits of the 4 Seasons.

    Canada vs The Liberals

    It sounds like the kind of song that the Four Seasons would have sung. I'm surprised that they didn't cover this.

    Allan R.

    @Canada vs The Liberals 4 Seasons had their own writers which produced many hits. They did covers also. I've got you under my skin, Don't Think Twice, will you love me Tomorrow, Stay, Ain't that a Shame. But yes, the arrangement had that 4 Seasons feel.

  25. raiderdanCA

    This piece is proof that THE TOKENS were vastly underrated ... there are many versions of this song, but this version is by far my favorite... great vocals ... !

  26. Patric McPoland

    They sound just as good as The Beach Boys in this song.

    Canada vs The Liberals

    I think their style sounds more similar to frankie valli and the four seasons.
