Kites" is a ballad written by Hal Hackady and Lee Pockriss. It was first recorded by the Rooftop Singers as their last single in 1967. The song then became a hit for Simon Dupree and the Big Sound, the group of the Shulman brothers who went on to form the progressive rock band Gentle Giant. Their first releases had not been successful and they looked to their manager, John King, for inspiration.

Simon Dupree and the Big Sound. Simon Dupree and the Big Sound were a British psychedelic band formed in 1966 by brothers Derek Shulman (vocals), Phil Shulman (vocals, saxophone, trumpet), and Ray Shulman (guitar, violin, trumpet, vocals); also known for their later prog rock band, Gentle Giant.

This cool tune by the British psychedelic band "Simon Dupree & The Big Sound" was released in 1967 and made it to number 9 in the UK charts, i like a lot of psychedelic music and this has always been one of my favourites so i thought i would upload it for you all to hear, i so love the catchy music to this.

Kites" is by far the best known number, and some of the later psychedelic efforts, including the Derek, Phil, and Ray Shulman-composed "She Gave Me the Sun" and the Shulman-Shulman "Thinking About My Life," are entertaining period pieces. But the real meat here is the group's R&B material from 1966 and earlier in 1967 - Derek Shulman was a convincing shouter, and when the group slipped into the right groove, even on the edge of their leap into psychedelia ("Reservations"), they could rise to the occasion with good results.
