The song Hushabye Mountain is from the 1968 musical film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang where it was performed by Dick Van Dyke. The first published version was Tony Bennett’s released in June 1968, Bobbie’s cover followed four months later in October: both recordings were released in advance of the official Soundtrack and film which came out in December 1968. In some territories including the U.S. the sides were switched and Sweete Peony was the A-side and Hushabye Mountain on the B-side. Hushabye Mountain was recorded during the Local Gentry sessions, but did not appear on that album. Early U.S. pressings of Local Gentry list the track in the running order but it’s covered over with a sticker of the issued sequence.
