Miss Eva Goodnight was written by the McCullagh brothers in South Africa in the 1970s.
They recruited Crocodile Harris, the stage name for the late Robin Graham, a young singer at the time, with hopes of making a career in pop music. Terence (Tully) McCullagh asked him to try out a vocal take on the back tracks for the song the brothers had prepared.

Tully remembers that Harris added a special delivery to the lyrics. "He did not sing it exactly as we wrote it, but his approach was very catchy. The local EMI representative heard Croc's version and that was it. He signed and we got a number one record", said Tully.
They had launched a new pop act who went on to follow-up on this debut. More re-issues are planned.
The original release was issued in the 1970s. Last month Tully re-produced the song, keeping only Harris' vocal. The new production was released on the 2nd of July 2021.
