Not until moments ago did I wonder how Bread got their name. Here is how:

"Along with Royer, they formed a band, signed with Elektra and named themselves Bread after getting stuck in traffic behind a Wonder Bread truck."

"Sweet Surrender"

Malcolm C. Searles

Read: A Sweet Surrender: The Musical Journey of David Gates, James Griffin & Co. Paperback

KoG - Another fine read. I was fortunate enough to pre-order the hard bound copy back in 2013. Even has my name inside for being one of the first 100 to order..... just dumb luck. It was a great read.
Sorry, I don't know how to add the video link like you do .... :)

mdh - I was viewing some YouTube videos on David Gates performing in more recent times. His singing voice is just as sweet sounding as it was back when he was singing Bread's hit songs! Father Time sure does a number on all of us in regards to our appearance.

Regarding how to add a YouTube video link to your message here, let me provide the instructions:

1) Go to the video you're viewing on YouTube and copy the link that appears at the top of your browser. Using the "Sweet Surrender" video you posted as an example, it will be the following that you will be copying: https://youtu.be/j-OJV4hjwSI

2) After having copied that link, come to this America site and start by composing a message.

3) After you have composed the message, look at the icons on top of the area here where you're typing your message. You see the 13 different icons that appear above? The first one is a square with the letter "B" while the last square has the letters "SP". Find the square with the lightning bolt. It's the third square from the right.

4) Click once on the lightning bolt.

5) Delete the information that appears between the two quotation marks. You will be deleting the following: http://www.web_address.here

6) In its place, paste the link of the YouTube video between the two quotation marks.

7) Next, delete the following: Click Text Here

8) In its place, type in the following words: Sweet Surrender

9) After that, you should be good to hit the "Save" button to post your message.

It's hard to give proper instructions via a typed out message as I'm doing. It's so much easier by telephone. Anyway, it may take some experimenting and a number of attempts to get it right. If it doesn't work the first time, just delete and try again and again. That is if I have instructed you correctly. If it still doesn't work, just let me know here and we can do it by phone. Best of luck!

KoG - Thank you for taking the time and effort to explain. it took me a bit but i got it :)

I was fortunate to see David Gates and Bread back in 1997. My wife surprised me with a trip to Sunfest in Ocean City MD. It was a great concert including the strings etc. As you stated He has an amazing voice. James Griffin, Mike Botts, Larry Knechtel and they toted along Guitar (gun) slinging Dean Parks and his wife Carol for backing vocals. An evening I'll never forget ! James was a gifted and talented singer/songwriter himself.
Again, I thank you for assisting me !

Alright, mdh, glad the linking of a YouTube video to your posting worked for you! It's my pleasure to be of assistance! Glad also that you immensely enjoyed your surprise trip and concert to see David Gates and his bandmates! I can relate to that with the first time I saw America in 1975. It was my first concert ever with my favorite group whose music I played on the stereo over and over.

K of G
I have enjoyed watching all of your selections. Great artist !
As a music lover I enjoy most music of most genre but I really do love America music.
Since you added a Doobie Bros video I have a question I ask a lot of DB fans. Johnston or McDonald era as lead vocal ?

Re: OT: Sharing An Awesome Video

mdh - That is a very good and interesting question regarding Tom Johnston or Michael McDonald. I like both guys as Doobie members. I have seen the Doobies in concert only once and that was when "What A Fool Believes" was at the top of the charts. I'm not much of a Michael McDonald fan regarding his solo work. I have not purchased any of the Doobies albums after the release of "One Step Closer" which I believe was the last album McDonald was with them as a member. So, it's sort of mixed up for me concerning the Doobies. I like how Pat Simmons has been the steady force for them for all these years. If the Doobies had released another album with McDonald as a member, I probably would have purchased it. I really like the songs Johnston wrote and sang lead prior to McDonald. I guess I'll just leave it at that. I realize that's not much of a direct answer. What about for you?

K of G - I too have only seen the Doobies once 1980. I was a fan of their early recordings and liked Johnston as the lead vocal. Your comment about Pat Simmons is spot on IMO. Couldn't agree more. I appreciate and respect the fact that M McD took the reins when Johnston left for health reasons and their success continued to grow even better than I ever expected. That said I personally preferred the early years better.

mdh - I will be commenting in a very brief way on each of the artists you choose. Here is how I will be doing it. You may follow if it pleases you to do so.

OWN - Meaning I OWN some form of recording by that artist.

WP - Meaning WOULD PURCHASE. Don't own any recording by this artist.

WNP - Meaning WOULD NOT PURCHASE even though he/she/they may be an excellent artist. Just not my style of music.

So, for Dave Mason: WP

mdh - It was bound to happen, but I thought it would be later rather than sooner. Wanting to keep it totally real and honest, I unfortunately would have to say: WNP. Just didn't hit a chord with me. However, they sort of remind me of who I have chosen next although I don't actually own anything by them other than the one song on a CD. They came to town and performed a free concert.

K-of-G I've blundered again..... I posted the wrong video ! Same artist, wrong song HaHa !
It's funny though I'm not a fan of Los Lonely Boys so that would be a WNP for me... :)

TOTO - I like live performances but the studio version of this song is silkier. As D&G have said, some songs are just very hard to reproduce live. As we have discussed.... father time has something to say about the voice. :)

mdh - Excellent choice! OWN at least 11 of their releases either in the form of CDs or LPs. As a side note, the county I live in is "Lea" but we pronounce it "Lee". Every time I hear Toto's song "99" it takes me back to my college days and specifically the cafeteria. It was played there a lot.

Took us 10 years to make it back together and TOTO was there again with another hidden Gem on CD and vinyl Fahrenheit- "LEA" Funny, both written by Steve Porcaro

"Fahrenheit" and "Isolation" happen to be the only two Toto releases that I OWN on vinyl. All the others are on CD. Like "Takin' It Back" there are so many nice songs by the group. Coincidentally, just several weeks ago, I was watching a YouTube video about all the ups and downs they have had during their many years. Besides, "99" one of my other favorites by the band is "Pamela".

ALBERT HAMMOND

Even though I don't own a single recording by him (not even this song), I have always liked it. But first, a medley of songs written by him for other artists with "INRISC" to follow.

Wow, mdh, you mentioned THREE of the artists who I have on my list for upcoming postings! How were you able to see my list? LOL

I had Paul Carrack as a solo artist written down as well as Mike and the Mechanics and Squeeze! Not only that but I had THIS SPECIFIC SONG chosen for Paul Carrack! What a coincidence!

Regarding Ace, I don't have any of their music, but I have several CDs of Paul Carrack as a solo performer. So,concerning Ace that would be a WP!

I have most all of Squeeze's music on CD and, of course, the one that has "Tempted" on it as sung by Carrack.

MIKE AND THE MECHANICS

I had them written down last week so might as well submit their video next since you mentioned them in your most recent submission. The following is my favorite song of theirs with Paul Carrack on keyboards:

"All I Need Is A Miracle"

Edison Lighthouse

I always found this intriguing,
Tony Burrows sang the lead vocals on several other one-hit wonder songs under different group names, Edison Lighthouse's "Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes)" (February 1970); White Plains' "My Baby Loves Lovin'" (March 1970); The Pipkins' novelty song "Gimme Dat Ding" (April 1970); and The First Class' "Beach Baby" ...

"Love Grows Where my Rosemary Goes"a>

mdh - This is unbelievable! Just last night I was viewing all the bands Tony Burrows has been in and has sung lead for. I thought about posting each of the songs you mentioned on separate days then revealing they were all sung by the same person. Just too bizarre the coincidence! I actually purchased "Love Grows..." when I was in junior high and still OWN the 45. In high school (I believe it may have been or soon after), I bought the LP that has "Beach Baby" on it. I must have given it to my sister as it's been missing for years now, and I never tossed any albums out. I remember thinking "Beach Baby" was the best song on the LP and the other songs didn't do that much for me. I remember seeing a YouTube video a few years back where Tony Burrows said both bands, Edison Lighthouse and White Plains, were scheduled to appear on the same TV show. He said he had to run to change clothes after one group's performance to quickly be on stage for the other. And, I have always liked "My Baby Loves Lovin'". Makes perfect sense being that it's the same singer even though I didn't know it back then.

TOMMY SHAW

He's a member of Styx, but I'm not really a Styx fan. I guess it would be like saying I like Gerry's solo music, but I'm not that much of an America fan. Odd, I know. Shaw also has sung with several other bands with one of them being Damn Yankees.

"Lonely School"

Foreigner



Without doubt one of the biggest music influences on my high school 70's days !
I'm a big fan of great album cuts that were not singles. Add to the fact that Mick Jones sang lead on this cut.... even better ;)
I think Lou Gramm had one the the best studio rock voices ever. I say studio because I've seen them several times back in the day and Lou liked to play around with the songs. As Mick would say, he had a lazy tongue..... Lou said he was bored and was trying to be creative. Lou had some good songs with Black Sheep Also.

Head Games 1979
"Modern Day">

Good deal going with Foreigner! OWN! They actually came to perform in my small town of 35,000 or so. Unfortunately, it wasn't when Lou Gramm was with them. It was an excellent concert, however. When they sang, "I Want To Know What Love Is," they had a local high school choir on stage singing with them which I thought was very cool. Did you know that Gramm has released a Christian CD or two? I found that fascinating. I viewed a YouTube video of him talking about his having had a brain tumor that was successfully removed, thanks be to God! Perhaps my favor solo song of his is "Midnight Blue".

RANDY MEISNER

Saw Randy Meisner when he came to my college back in the day and when his solo album "Hearts On Fire" was released. Unfortunately, he hasn't aged well and has health issues these days. The following video shows him in his prime. I suggest skipping the silly intro and begin the video at the 25 second mark.

mdh - Nice choice! Did you see the 12th entry of these video postings? I had posted it before you joined me. Just curious to know if you saw it and still wanted to post another Restless Heart song which is great by me!

I have 4 or 5 of their CDs, but not the particular one you posted the song from. I have seen Restless Heart twice. Once was a free concert here in my home town. The other time was also local, but Restless Heart appeared with two other country bands. One was Diamond Rio and the other was who I will be featuring for my next video as they are my favorite country band. The tour with all three bands was called, "Triple Threat". It was an excellent night of country music! The odd thing about Restless Heart is when their lead singer Larry Stewart left to pursue a solo career, the band continued on without him, and the other members stepped up to sing lead. Ironically, they had their most successful song after Stewart left. He did return some time later and has remained with them to this day.

KOG - Little Texas - They had a good run in the 90's. They definitely have similar qualities as Diamond Rio, Shenandoah, The Remingtons.
I like the video's with the Lyrics :)

I'm gonna add, if you don't mind .... itunes or Spotify to our code of WP,WNP OWN

I have all the above on itunes and Spotify

I couldn't help but notice we're creeping up on 100 post on a single thread. I went back 25 pages (625) post nothing close, and surprisingly no one is joining us.... waz up with that ! :)

mdh - Excellent choice going with England Dan and John Ford Coley! They are one of my favorite duos from the 70s. I OWN the LP from which "Westward Wind" is from as well as a couple of other releases of theirs. "Westward Wind" is a very nice song. It's unfortunate that they didn't have a larger history of releases like Dewey and Gerry have. I don't know if you are aware of the following, but I thought it was interesting: John Ford Coley's real name is "John Edward Colley". And, Dan Seals was called "England Dan" by his brother because he liked the Beatles a lot and would occasionally speak with a British accent.

I don't know if you chose "ED & JFC" knowing my choice of Little Texas has a connection to a member of that band. Former singer and songwriter for Little Texas is Brady Seals who is a cousin of Dan and his brother Jim of Seals and Crofts. And, Brady Seals was my second entry on this thread. He was the one singing with Dash Crofts' daughter as a member of Seals and Crofts 2.

Anyone here is certainly welcome to join in with us if they would like to.

LOL, mdh, "ooga chacka"! Blue Swede! Funny!!!

Excellent choice going with B. J. Thomas. OWN! I attended an afternoon performance of B. J. at the auditorium where I attended high school. It was either on a Saturday or a Sunday. It was a very nice show. That same morning, I had spotted the tour bus parked outside the auditorium and asked one of the crew members if it was possible to have a couple of album covers autographed. To my delight, he told me there would be a meet and greet after the performance. Indeed there was. B.J. announced it at the end of the show saying he would be out after he cleaned up a bit. About 30 minutes later, sure enough, he appeared with semi-wet hair and in a jogging suit! I saw during the performance the crew member who I had talked to earlier that day was the guitar player.

I had with me 3 or 4 of his albums and a 45 of "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry". During the concert, he said the song was his father's favorite of all the songs he had recorded. As he was signing my album covers, he said he hopes not to see them on eBay. From the tone of his voice, he was quite serious which surprised me! I assured him they were keepers which, of course, they are. When he was autographing one of the covers, I mentioned to him that I see he was wearing the same ring as on the cover (album "Two Car Garage"). He said it's the same ring except it has a different stone. He explained he allowed his wife to have the diamond stone for a ring she want to have made. He said during the concert he has been married only once and was still married to his wife.

I had read online that he reluctantly recorded "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head" only after Bobby Goldsboro had turned it down and that he (B.J) wasn't that excited about the song in the beginning and almost turned it down himself.

Saw his performance at the same auditorium I saw B. J. Thomas which was only a couple of years before his passing. Had a seat on about the second row dead center. Can still remember what he was wearing: a peach-colored pullover sweater and white slacks.

I remember watching re-runs of Ozzie and Harriet in the early 70's. I always looked forward to hearing one of his songs.

I only OWN 1 Greatest hits Album (1985) Probably from a flea market.

Yes, I like trivia and such, but no, I haven't caught on yet to where we're headed. I look forward to seeing, however!

My next musical selection isn't really that dear to me as I have only one CD of theirs, and it's a greatest hits called, "Rewind". I was really surprised to see them covering a country song and especially the lead singer playing an acoustic guitar as I had never known him to be a guitar player. That was a huge surprise! How about for you?

I do OWN "Some Girls" 1978 and I actually have seen them Live at RFK back in "89" I was young, they were famous and old.... Haha ! I figured why not, I can always say I've seen the Stones Live.
The Bob Wills Cover was pretty good. I know that George Strait loved and covered Bob Wills songs !

mdh - Paul Overstreet is an excellent songwriter of country music. The song, "I Won't Take Less Than Your Love," I recognize as a song recorded by sassy female country artist Tanya Tucker. I believe I may have talked about her a time or two in the past here. I can't remember whether here or on Facebook. Perhaps on both. Regarding Paul Overstreet, as talented a songwriter as he is, in all honesty I probably WNP, but as mentioned, he is a wonderful writer of many country songs!

TANYA TUCKER

She finally won a Grammy just this year after being in the music industry for many years. She doesn't have the best vocal quality, but she sure makes up for it with her fun personality in my opinion. She was actually born only 30 miles east of my home town which is Seminole, Texas. It has a population of only about 6,300 people. Interestingly, another country music celeb was born there as well, and he is Larry Gatlin. One would think the community of Seminole would proudly have a sign "advertising" that both country music superstars were born there by stating something like: "Welcome to Seminole, Texas...the birthplace of country stars Tanya Tucker and Larry Gatlin." However, they don't.

Tanya Tucker's grandmother (now deceased) lived in a community 40 miles from here in a Texas town called Denver City. Tanya would occasionally come to visit her grandmother. One resident there told me she saw Tanya in Denver City one time with Glen Campbell back when the two were a couple.

The local newspaper of my town, once had an article about Tanya coming here to visit her cousins by popping into their elementary school unexpectedly, thrilling her cousins' classmates. Interestingly, the school where her cousins attended was located in the lower income part of the city. Tanya's wealth was quite a contrast when compared to that of her cousins' family.

I have a couple of greatest hits CDs of Tanya purchased for only a buck from local thrift stores. Otherwise, I would not have them if I had to pay full retail price, LOL. As you may know, Tanya Tucker won two Grammys just this year for "Best Country Song" and "Best Country Album" which goes to show that it's still possible after being in the music industry for many years and having been nominated but falling short numerous times.

The song that won her a Grammy: "Bring My Flowers Now"

You must have read my mind this time as I was thinking after I finish my run of certain artist I was going to add some female artist because I've been tardy to do so.
You mentioned Larry Gatlin, he is part of the few clues I have already posted.

Re-cap - B.J Thomas, Lionel Cartwright, Paul Overstreet......Also, Paul was a member of SKO - Schuyler, Knobloch and Overstreet

LeBlanc and Carr

I'm sure you'll remember the second song at 4:22

"Something About You" and "Falling"

LENNY LEBLANC

"Falling"

After you post the first video as you usually do then hold down the "Shift" key and hit the "Enter" key twice (for spacing) and it will allow you to post the second video like you did the first one.

mdh - Very nice with LeBlanc and Carr as a duo and Lenny LeBlanc as a solo artist. I definitely remember "Falling". I don't, however, remember "Something About You", but it was very nice as well. That would be a WP! Regarding LeBlanc and Carr as a duo, I would compare them to Hall and Oates with Daryl Hall being the dominate vocalist (like LeBlanc) and John Oates (like Carr) being the lesser vocalist of the duo.

Could the connection between the artists you have mentioned be that they have performed Christian music as well?

KOG - Ah... A little personal package from the mailman ! Wow, what a story !
OWN - "Wild Heart of the Young". It amazes me how some artist (singer / songwriters) have had better success singing other writers songs.

Lenny LeBlanc - Yes, that was the connection. Many of the Artist I posted had Christian influences and in some cases just like or "America" friend Dan.... they stopped recording the music that made them mainstream famous and continue to follow their roots.

Lenny LeBlanc - I know it's the same song but had to add this.

Nice selection, mdh! I OWN only one CD of Suzy Bogguss, and it's of her greatest hits which, of course, includes her fine singing of "Someday Soon". She has a very lovely voice! For what it's worth, I had a former co-worker whose maiden name was Bogguss. She's the only Bogguss I have ever met.

THE LEFT BANKE

I don't own anything by The Left Banke, but I have always liked the subject song since about the age of 10. I remember hearing The Four Tops singing it as well.

Differing accounts by the co-writers as to the song's origin:

Michael Brown has stated that "the song is one of a number he wrote about Renée Fladen-Kamm, the then-girlfriend of The Left Banke's bassist Tom Finn and object of Brown's affection. She was associated with the band for a few weeks, and was described as a free-spirited and tall blonde. The song was written one month after Brown met her. 'Walk Away Renee' was one of a series of love songs the infatuated Brown wrote after meeting his newfound muse."

"However, co-writer Tony Sansone has given a different version of the origin of the song and contends that he is the primary writer. Sansone has stated in interviews that he wrote the lyrics for the song, and that he randomly chose the name Renée because the Beatles used the name Michelle in their hit song of the same name, and so he did likewise, choosing the French name Renée as the female object for the song."

The flute is part of the song because it was admired in The Mamas and the Papas, "California Dreamin'".

"Walk Away Renee"

KOG - Great song..... I was to young to know this song when it was released but my Mom told me she knew I was a more Melencoly kind of kid. She said I was always moved by songs with more meaning even when I didn't know the meaning..... I love the Four Tops and Motown Music but I prefer this verson. As always, great Story ... :)

Excellent selection, mdh! Ahh, Alison Krauss and Union Station. I don't have anything by them but WP! I read that Alison Krauss has won 27 Grammys out of 42 nominations! That is astounding! She has the voice of an angel. I sometimes get her mixed up vocally with another female singer who I may feature later. I really like the song, "Baby Now That I've Found You". As a matter of fact, so much so, it leads me to my next musical selection.

THE FOUNDATIONS

Another group from my youth back in the 60s. Being that they made famous the song covered by Alison Krauss and Union Station, "Baby Now That I've Found You," I've selected the subject song. For many years I thought the song was sung by the Four Tops. I had heard they were formed to be their rival. I don't know how true that may be as I heard it stated so on the radio a few years ago. The Foundations were a multi-racial band who were credited as being the first successful soul group from England.

A bit choppy in parts: "Build Me Up Buttercup"

They did a nice job.
WP - I have them on itunes and Spotify

Alison Krauss - I've had the pleasure of seeing her a few times. Amazing voice :)

mdh - I remember quite well that Gerry Rafferty was a member of Stealers Wheel, but I wasn't aware who the other members were. After doing a little research I discovered the band was founded by Gerry Rafferty and Joe Egan. I probably WNP although I do enjoy their hits as well as Rafferty's solo hits. I remember hearing on the radio when Rafferty had passed away. I tried finding out how the band got its name, but I wasn't successful.

WALTER EGAN

The discovery that Stealers Wheel had a member named Joe Egan brought to mind for me a solo artist named Walter Egan. He had a few minor hits but the one below is perhaps his biggest. I have two of his albums. I first discovered him when he made an appearance on American Bandstand. It's a bit shocking seeing Walter Egan with solid white hair, but at least he still has a lot of it!

Nice choice, mdh! Believe it or not, I don't have even a single song of Heart! The Wilson sisters are super talented, but I just have never bought anything of theirs. I do enjoy their hit songs which are numerous. You are clearly a devoted fan of them having seen them as often as you stated. I remember Dewey imitating the singing of the lyrics, "Let me go crazy on you..." during an interview when Heart shared the bill with America, LOL.

I discovered Jude Cole's music when a song of his was featured on a Coca-Cola cassette sampler. Since that time I have purchased several of his CDs. For what it's worth, he is married to the younger sister of Michelle Pfeiffer.

KOG - Ah there's a good under the radar find. You don't hear much talk of Jude. I do remember "Start The Car" from 1992. I'm of the opinion that some artist miss the curve a bit, in this case i think he was stretching the 80's a tad. Music was changing again in 90. I enjoyed his hits but I don't own any of his music but I will be adding some to my Spotify playlist now, so thanks for flipping my switch :)

Not too big a fan of Aerosmith but I do like their hits. I do have one of their greatest hits CDs. I don't own anything by Led Zeppelin nor Jimmy Page. With Steven Tyler as Aerosmith's lead vocalist, it brings me to my next featured artist. mdh, you probably know what the connection is between Steven Tyler and my next musical performer.

TODD RUNDGREN

Rundgren helped raise Liv Tyler who had the last name of Rundgren until she changed it to her father's last name. I read that she only discovered Steven Tyler was her biological father at the age of 11. Prior to that time, she thought Rundgren was. She now claims both Rundgren and Tyler as her father.

Two of my high school classmates (Jim Abbott and Larry Sweet) have their names on a list (poster?) that was enclosed with one of the LPs by Rundgren. Jim told me if the first "so many" fans submitted their name, they would have it included with the LP when it was released. Specifically which LP, I don't remember.

"I Saw The Light"

mdh - "Old And Wise" is such a touching song! It's very nice! I had never heard it before. Colin Blunstone has a very sweet singing voice. I only know a handful of Zombies songs he sang such as "She's Not There," "Time Of The Season" and "Tell Her No". He does a wonderful job on "Old And Wise". Concerning The Alan Parson's Project, I was only familiar with a few songs such as "Games People Play," "Eye In The Sky, "Time" and perhaps a few other songs that were played as hits on the radio. I don't have any music by Colin Blunstone, The Zombies nor The Alan Parsons Project. They all three are WP. Thanks for directing me to their music! Oh, I do know that Colin Blunstone sang Russ Ballard's "I Don't Believe In Miracles" and have posted it here a couple of times in the past.

AMBROSIA

mdh - I don't know if you noticed who it was who was singing background voice on the Todd Rundgren song that I posted yesterday. I intentionally didn't mention it to see if you might comment about who the singer was. His presence leads me to my next musical pick. The background singer was David Pack of Ambrosia, and here he is singing lead in the following song:

KOG - Ambrosia - exellent choice. Back to my youth again, while most 13 year old boys at that time would be caught up in KISS, Eagles, Doobies, Pink Floyd etc. (not that I didn't like them as well), but I was drawn more to groups like Ambrosia, Bread, America, 10cc etc. they were more sophisticated and deeper. "Holdin'on to Yesterday" (1975) does't get much more impassioned. Thanks :)
OWN
No, I didn't recognize David Pack.... good catch !
I'll check out "I Don't Believe in Miracles"

DEAN FORD - The Maralade

I chose Dean Ford as an overflow from the Alan Parson Project. When you look at the Notable contrituters to the Project you'll see it's quite extensive. Parsons Produced many of these artist/Bands then cherry picked some to play or sing on his Records.

Excellent choice, mdh! I'm very familiar with that particular Marmalade song being that I was in junior high when "Reflections Of My Life" was very popular and often played on the radio. It brings back a lot of fond memories from that time period such as becoming an early teen and being very interested in girls and all the fun that surrounded it. I wasn't aware of who the lead singer was, but I now know it's Dean Ford who has a very nice singing voice. The video showing him singing as a young man versus a senior now was cool. It makes me a bit sad though knowing we're each growing older and are no longer the handsome and strong person we were in our 20s and 30s. I checked out some other Marmalade songs on YouTube. They were all very nicely sung songs with some as cover songs which I enjoy hearing how other bands sing songs made popular by other performers. WP!

MICHAEL JACKSON

I'm choosing Michael Jackson tonight because today (June 25th) is the 11th anniversary of his passing. Few remember today is also Farrah Fawcett's 11th year of her passing. Michael's death greatly overshadowed Farrah's.

A brief story that I mentioned here before is my knowing Michael's cousin who lives in my home town. His cousin has a business here that I visit at least once a week. I asked Hawk (nickname because his last name is Hawkins) if what I had heard is true about him being related to MJ. He said it's so. Honestly, I had much doubt about it even after he confirmed it. Two years ago when MJ's father passed (June 27), Hawk asked me if I had heard about "Uncle Joe". I know Hawk's uncle who lives here. I thought at first he was referring to his Uncle Bob because I mainly heard "uncle". I said, "No, what happened?" He replied that he passed away. I then realized Hawk meant MJ's father as I knew he was quite ill from news reports. I asked if he would be attending the funeral. He said he and his wife and their toddler would be driving out to California. That week when I stopped by Hawk's business, I asked his workers if he was in. They told me he left for California. I asked, "To attend a funeral?" They replied, "Yes". I thought to myself, "Wow, so it is true that Hawk is actually related to the Jacksons." When Hawk returned home, I asked him how the service went. He said everything went well. He told me his father was the minister at the funeral. Hawk then showed me a clip of the service, and I was blown away to see him and his family among members of MJ's siblings! It seemed totally surreal to me being that Hawk is someone I know yet he was related to one of the most famous singers in the world. He also showed me a short video of the car a particular singer owned who attended the private service. I saw the singer walking with someone who was leading him to his car. I easily recognized it as Stevie Wonder. Hawk said Latoya's daughter (nicknamed "Little Latoya") was in very hot water with the family because she leaked a video to TMZ of the private service. I assumed she did it for the money. A week or two later Hawk showed me a very thick photo album that he said he rarely shows anyone so I felt honored he allowed me to thumb through the album. There were numerous photos of the Jackson family in personal and private gatherings. Again, there was Hawk with the Jackson clan. A particular photo stood out to me. It was MJ sitting by himself in a living room chair taken with a Polaroid camera. I told Hawk the anniversary of MJ's passing is very easy for me to remember. I pulled out my driver's license to show him my date of birth. It matches the day of MJ's passing. Hawk was surprised.

I checked out Colin Blunstone's version of "I Don't Believe in Miracles". I'm partial to Gerry's version.

Excellent choice, mdh! I read that Clint Black has had more than 30 singles on the US Billboard country charts, twenty-two of which have reached number one. Plus, his debut album "Killin' Time" produced four straight number one singles on the US Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts! A few years back, I was informed that CB was scheduled to perform a free-to-the-public concert at the county seat but, unfortunately, it has yet to occur. He did, however, play a concert locally, but I wasn't able to attend. Besides America and Billy Dean, I have a ball cap with Clint Black's name on the front. To me CB looks like he could be the son of This Famous Person of Western Shows and Songs.

mdh - I OWN Firefall's debut LP.

There are bands whose first hit song is what really draws us to them, but after playing the entire album, it just isn't what we were expecting. I regret having to say that was the case for me with Firefall. I never purchased another one of their albums. That has occurred several times with my album purchases. I can think of at least three other artists where that has happened for me. It doesn't mean they aren't excellent artists. It just means they weren't of my particular interest after all.

My next featured selection will be another "one album purchase only" for me.

KOG - I can understand where your coming from. I have a few artist of my own :) Firefall was an aquired taste also. I enjoyed their 5 top 40 hits over the span of a few years and purchased their albums because as I went back and played them as like America songs, I found something I wasn't listening for in eailer years. Vocals, lyrics, guitars etc. They had 5 songs just outside of the top 40 also. I'll admit I preferred other songs that didn't get air play or weren't released as singles. I think that's normal. We see that here with America music discussions. Not everone agrees on certain songs.

Orleans - I liked the 3 tunes "Still the One" "Dance with Me", "Love Takes Time" ..... I also liked the song "Forever"
OWN - Orleans would fall in the category you described for me also :)

mdh - I don't hate the Cars' music, but I can't say I'm really a fan of theirs either. Personally, I think they're okay. I remember hearing on the radio that Rick Ocasek had passed away near the end of 2019 from heart disease. :(

I don't own anything by the Cars.

THE RASPBERRIES

I intentionally chose Todd Rundgren's "I Saw The Light" instead of one of his other songs such as "Hello It's Me" or "We Gotta Get You A Woman" to segue into the Raspberries. I was going to mention the following from the Raspberries Greatest Hits CD liner notes but got sidetracked until now:

Eric Carmen: "When the Raspberries were recording our first album, we were at Record Plant in New York in Studio B, and Todd Rundgren was in Studio A. Todd came by and stuck his head in the door and we happened to be mixing the song 'I Saw The Light.' Todd listened for a couple of minutes and then he left. Then the last song we had to mix that day was called 'I Can Remember.' Todd came by again and stuck his head in the door, listened and walked away. "Something/Anything" came out a month before the Raspberries' first album. The first track on the album was 'I Saw The Light,' and I thought, 'That's interesting, what a coincidence.' I listened to the song and it didn't really sound like ours, but lyrically it had some very similar things going on. Then the next song of Todd's album started out with this keyboard, and he was playing the exact chords to 'I Can Remember,' and the first line of the song was 'Do you remember,' and I thought, thievery. So I decided to get my revenge. My favorite song on his album was 'Couldn't I just Tell You.' So I sat down with my guitar one day and figured out that guitar part and reworked it and wrote 'I Wanna Be With You.' Then Todd came to Carnegie Hall when we played with Stories. I walked past him when we were sitting at a table and I said, 'I loved 'Couldn't I Just Tell You,' and he looked at me and said, 'That figures.'"

"I Wanna Be You"

The Rasberries - OWN on CD, itunes,Spotify
10 at the time when "Go All the Way" was a top 5 hit I didn't know who Eric Carmen was till 1975 and "All by Myself" was released.

THE WONDERS

This song always reminds of The Rasberries song "I Want To Be With You"
I know it was a Movie song and it almost broke the top 40 back in 96
Adam Schlesinger recorded the demo with friend and producer Mike Viola and sang back-up, and a few months later, their voices were what moviegoers heard when the Wonders played “That Thing You Do!”
I think we both know the connection here with Dewey, Gerry and Adam my he RIP :(

CHRIS ISAAK

Saw Chris Isaak locally a couple of years ago. I'm very surprised he and I are only one day apart in age (same month and year). I thought he was easily 10 years younger than me when I saw him in person. He came down from the stage and performed just a few feet away from me. The following video appears to be a rehearsal.

mdh - You caught me! I intentionally didn't say WP or WNP. I was hoping to avoid saying WNP. I'm just not a fan of Chicago. I know a lot of people are their fans, but I'm just not. They were extremely popular when I was in high school. As a matter of fact, the high school pep band played a lot of their music because they were so popular. Plus, the pep band had a very good brass section.

Regarding ELO, OWN! Interesting that their greatest hits CD has "Sweet Talkin' Woman" as #7 on the playlist but "Evil Woman" as #1. The evil woman prevails over the sweet talkin' woman, LOL.

Cool video you shot even though it wasn't very long. I'm glad you were able to take your daughter to the concert. Buildin' memories! Do you live in the D.C. area?

BOB WELCH

From the internet: "Welch had undergone spinal surgery three months prior to his death. Despite the surgery, doctors told him his prognosis for recovery was poor, and he would eventually become an invalid. He was still in considerable pain, despite taking the medication pregabalin (Lyrica) for six weeks.

On June 7, 2012, around 6:00 am, Welch committed suicide by shooting in his Nashville home; his wife Wendy discovered his body. He left a nine-page suicide note and love letter for Wendy. He was 66 years old.

Wendy died on November 28, 2016, from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and heart disease, also aged 66.

Bob and Wendy Welch are buried beside each other in Memphis, Tennessee."

KOG - Good choice, I wasn't aware of his health problem. I knew he was snubbed by the HOF. Sad story ! About Chicago - Hey I understand, It's not everyones cup of tea. I have my fair share of big name artist that I can take or leave and some I just couldn't turn the dial quick enough... :) Haha
Evil Woman vs Sweet Talkin' Woman, it might be that EW peaked at #10 for 8 weeks vs STW at #17. Looks to me that Don't Bring Me Down was their most successful US Billboard song at #4
Internet - From 1972 to 1986, ELO accumulated twenty-seven Top 40 songs on the UK Singles Chart, and fifteen Top 20 songs on the US Billboard Hot 100. The band also holds the record for having the most Billboard Hot 100 Top 40 hits (20) without a number one single of any band in US chart history. In 2017 the ELO line-up of Wood, Lynne, Bevan and Tandy were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

This is for Mr. Welch - Written and sung by Bob for Fleetwood Mac
RIP

When I hear part of the melody in this song it reminds me of a famous Band you already posted in this thread. Hmmm ? The Melody is repeated several times.

Nice choice, mdh, going with the Grass Roots. OWN! The songs of the Grass Roots were among my favorites when I was in junior high being that they were most popular at about that time. I have both the LP and CD of their greatest hits. Both contain 16 songs each; however, three songs are different. On the LP, which is from 1971, the three songs are "Feelings," "Walking Through The Country" and "I Can Turn Off The Rain". On the CD the three songs are "Two Divided By Love," "Glory Bound" and "The Runway". The CD was manufactured in 1996 so I assume after 1971, the three songs on the CD outsold the three on the LP, but that's merely speculation on my part.

Some years ago, lead singer Rob Grill came to town to perform a free outdoor concert sponsored by the city. He put on a great show and even did a meet and greet afterwards, but I didn't stay for it as I was with two other people and didn't want them to have to wait. It was basically like attending a Grass Roots performance with Grill singing their greatest hits. He sang most of the concert while seated on a stool. He explained he was in need of hip surgery but was putting it off. He performed a couple of cover songs which I really enjoyed. One of them was Edison Lighthouse's "Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes" which was a song we talked about here. The other was by a group I plan to select soon.

Is the song with a part of the melody as you mentioned from "Feelings" an America song by Dan?

THREE DOG NIGHT

As a junior high kid, I would sometimes get the songs by Three Dog Night and the Grass Roots mixed up for some odd reason. Plus, it didn't help with each of them having a song with a somewhat similar title, the Grass Roots, "Walking Through The Country" and my featured song by Three Dog Night.

A number of years ago, I attended a concert featuring Three Dog Night and America. America performed first. After the concert, I thought it was a good thing it occurred in that order being that Three Dog Night put on a much more rockin' show which really surprised me. Had it been the other way around, it would have been a bit of a "letdown" having the mellower band close the two performances. After the show, I went to the merch table to purchase an America t-shirt and spoke about the two shows with the merch worker. He informed me the two bands alternated regarding who performed first. I found that interesting.

KOG - another great story ..... thanks for sharing I find myself analysing songs added or replaced in later releases also. I'd think your right about your theory.
The Grassroots song - No, it's not Dan.... the secret is the I believe the xylophone ? that little riff is just enough that it sounds like a very famous British Bands song from the 60's.

Great choice picking Three Dog Night - "Out in the Country" is definitely one of my favorites.
Not sure how long ago you saw 3DN and America together but in recent years Dewey and Gerry have let the Kids cut loose and I wish they would expand their playlist to keep certain rockin' song on the playlist instead of rotating OUT Green Monkey, The Border, etc.
Last year I saw them and they added Greenhouse back in but dumped Green Monkey... While I'm on a roll here I'll add that I really miss not having Billy as the lead guitarist. Steve is a great and talented guy but Bill kept it to the roots ! He played the songs just like Woodzy did and better, cleaner, faster ! I can't even get into the Sandman's end riff anymore cause it's just blended together. You can hardlly hear Dewey's part. "Hollywood" is the same way. I really wish he could pull off the origional way it was performed. I'm sure he can but I believe he just wants to make it his own.

Happy 4th of July to you, mdh, and to anyone else who may be reading this!

What a wonderful song written by Jimmy Webb that you selected. And, what a beautiful voice Art Garfunkel has! Other than having Simon and Garfunkel's greatest hits on CD, I don't own anything by AG as a solo artist, but I certainly WP! Between Simon & Garfunkel, I definitely prefer Art Garfunkel's work. I remember as a freshmen in junior high, the school newspaper asked a few of us students what our favorite song was and I said it was "Bridge Over Troubled Waters".

LEE GREENWOOD

One 4th of July a few years ago, Lee Greenwood came to town to perform a free outdoor afternoon concert sponsored by the city as part of its July 4th celebration. I was very surprised that Lee Greenwood selected my home town to attend being that he is in extremely high demand to sing during the 4th. I had brought along my mandolin in hopes of having it autographed by him after his performance.

After his last song, I rushed from my seat with mandolin in hand hoping to catch him as he exited the stage. To my delight, he stopped to sign autographs for only about a half dozen or so other fans who had the same idea in mind. I had brought along with me a new black Sharpie. When it came my turn, I offered my Sharpie to LG, but he wanted to use the one he already had in his hand and pushed my hand away as he accepted the mandolin from me, LOL. His signature on the mandolin is one of my proudest to have which contains only country music artists.

KOG - Best Pick for the 4th ! Good show Mate :)
As always, another great story ! Funny thing about the Sharpie.... I'll always remember the first time I got an autograph from an artist they told me to bring a well used sharpie next time. Said it laid down on the pieces they were signing. I'm sure you have that Mandolin in a special place :) I liked the new recording of God Bless the USA

S&G - I think they harmonized together wonderfully. I too preferred Garfunkel's solo performances and voice for sure. Simon was a gifted songwriter and together they were great. I don't own any Paul Simon recordings.
I believe I owe you a response from the ELO discussion. Yes we live in MD and DC is about 45 minutes on a good day LOL

I'll give you another shot at the Feeling's song.....Hope you have/Had a great 4th......Enjoy !

mdh - I trust you survived the 4th okay and had a nice one. All I had to do this year to observe fireworks was to simply step outside. I have never seen so many in the night sky as last night! I'm just amazed how much money some people send purchasing fireworks. As a kid it was a lot of fun popping Black Cat firecrackers. On a rare occasion one might explode in your hand after lighting it and before being able to toss it. Man, would it hurt!

Anyway, back to music. That was a good song sung by Waylon Jennings. I have never purchased any music by him. I remember when I was in college, he performed a concert on campus on one of the weekends. I didn't attend, but there was plenty of talk about WJ starting the show but having to end it soon after it began due to his being too intoxicated to perform! The talk was all over campus. I can't remember positively, but I would assume all attendees were given a refund. Personally, I'm not much of a fan of Waylon although I'm a big fan of country music. I remember he had an album entitled, "Crying and Waylon" which I thought was quite clever as it contained his song, "Crying". Honestly, it would be a WNP for me. A friend of mine named his son "Waylon" after WJ. Plus, they lived in the country and were permitted to name their own street being that they were one of the first to live on that particular street. Actually, I should say it was a road. A dirt road as a matter of fact. He, as you may have guessed, named the road, "Waylon".

Concerning "Feelings", give me another day to try to figure it out. :)

THE BELLAMY BROTHERS

Was able to see the Bellamy Brothers at a free outdoor evening concert held 20 miles north of my home town. It's actually in the town where I work. It was sponsored by the town as part of their "Evening on the Plaza" series of concerts.

Again, with mandolin in hand and their greatest hits LP, I met Howard and David Bellamy when they held an intermission to do a meet and greet. When they were autographing my two items, I informed them that my two brothers are named Howard and David. I don't know whether they believed me, but it's true. What are the odds of that, right?

I like the clever lyrics of the following song:

"If I Said You Have A Beautiful Body"

KOG- Yes the 4th was fine. We typically would go to the park for the annual fireman's fireworks but they were cancelled because of the CV19 mess. That said your right, it's amazing how many folks sent up signals in our neiborhood. Haha..... about 11p we walked outside and the sky was full of smoke and the air was thick of gun powder smell.

WJ- I just used that particular song for the 4th. I like a few of this songs but do not own and album or CD.

The Bellamy Bros. I OWN the album "Strong Weakness" (1982) I remember their first song "Let Your Love Flow" and enjoyed many of their hits along the way. I have a personal Greatest hits collection of the Bellamy's on itunes and Spotify. To answer your comment about "If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body" It's Cleaver and kind of creepy.... I remember a teacher in my high school who use to say that to the girls. I didn't think much of then but definitely ......not appropriate.

VONDA SHEPARD

mdh - You and others here are probably well aware of Vonda Shepard as a regular on Ally McBeal, but since I have never watched even one episode of the show, I have no idea of the character she portrays nor the songs she sings on the show. I only know of her from a CD I came across a couple of years ago. It features her singing a song you picked recently, "Hooked On A Feeling", and one I picked a few weeks ago, "Walk Away Renee". Here is her cover of the latter:

"Walk Away Renee"

Seems were on the same Ally McBeal page .... nope never saw a single episode either :) I remember she did a nice duo with Dan Hill "Cant We Try" 1987. I do not OWN any of her material but will definitely add some of her songs to my Spotify. Thanks for heads up ! WP
"Feelings" - I think part of the instrumental melody sounds like The Rolling Stones song "Under My Thumb"

I purchased the LP based strictly on the following song which I like, but I didn't care too much for the rest of the album. Unlike today where you can listen to an entire CD online before purchasing it, I took a chance, but it wasn't what I had hoped.

mdh - I OWN six of Janis Ian's CDs with one of them containing "At Seventeen" and performed live on a 2-CD release, "Working Without A Net". I picked them all up at a local thrift store. The front covers of three of the CDs are autographed: "To Dulce & Tere - Janis Ian". The fourth one is autographed on the actual CD itself so I could easily remove the two names with an alcohol swab and still have Ian's autograph on it! Apparently, the autographed CDs no longer meant much to "Dulce & Tere".

SOUTHERN PACIFIC

The featured song was part of the soundtrack for the 1989 movie, "Pink Cadillac", starring Clint Eastwood and Bernadette Peters. The movie had small cameo roles by Jim Carrey and Bryan Adams. Another Southern Pacific song was part of the soundtrack which was, "Reno Bound". Notice the two band members who were from another band prior to their forming Southern Pacific. I was really surprised that one of the members from the other band was the lead singer on this song as he was never a lead singer with the other band.

P.S. mdh- I forgot to mention that I had not heard Ozark Mountain Daredevil's "You Know Like I Know" until you mentioned it. It's a very nice song. Too bad the other songs from "It'll Shine When It Shines" weren't more like it. Also, I mentioned the lead singer of Southern Pacific's, "Any Way The Wind Blows", was never a lead singer for the other band. That is, as far as I know based on the last release of theirs that I have. It may have changed with subsequent releases that I don't have.

KOG - I liked the song "New Shade of Blue" back in the day. I'll admit I wasn't aware that SP had so many talented members. Knudsen and McFee from the Doobie Brothers and David Jenkins Lead vocalist from Pablo Cruise. Very cool.... I do not own vinyl or cd just itunes and Spotify but WP :)

JAMES GRIFFIN
Best known for his work with the band Bread

In 1970, Griffin and Rob Royer – under the pseudonyms Arthur James and Robb Wilson – wrote the lyrics for Fred Karlin's music for the song "For All We Know," featured in the film Lovers and Other Strangers. It won the Academy Award for Best Song.This song was later covered by The Carpenters on their third album.
This is a song he wrote and sang for Bread.

38 SPECIAL

38 Special was one of the featured musical acts during the week-long county fair a few years ago. I didn't attend as their performance was on a weekday and would have interfered with a good night's sleep for the following work day. I was told by several attendees that I missed a very good concert. I now wish I would have attended.

KOG - Nice selection .... If you own or like 38 special music you probably missed a good show. I have seen them a few times over the years and they reproduce very well live. I haven't seen them since Donnie left the band in 2013 for health reasons.
OWN- Special Forces and Tour De Force on Vinyl and other CD's as well.

CHILLIWACK
Probably best know for their 1981 song "My Girl (Gone,Gone,Gone)"

THE KINGSTON TRIO

The Kingston Trio was Shasta's favorite singing group during her younger days. She would have been 68 this past March. Last month was the second-year anniversary of her passing. In honor of her memory and in remembrance of how much she contributed to this America fan blog, I'm featuring the following Kingston Trio song:

"Where Have All The Flowers Gone"

KOG - Ah yes, a Pete Seeger song. Nice of you to pay homage to Shasta. Visiting the 50's 60's Folk era was a good chioce.
Growing up in a family that had a radio in every room in the house.... yes, including the bathroom. If the radio wasn't playing, the console stereo was spinning Vinyl. :) My sister was almost a decade older than me and she had a large collection of vinyl. Kingston Trio, Peter,Paul and Mary, Motown music to CCR and Iron Buttery.

mdh - Chad and Jeremy had a great sound! As with you, I have an older sister also by nearly a decade (specifically by 8 years) who played a lot of the music from that time period on the family stereo. Another duo who I remember well from that era was also very popular. I would often get them confused with Chad and Jeremy being that their sound was very similar. They are my next featured performers. I don't have any music by them nor by Chad and Jeremy, but I surely enjoy their sound and WP!

PETER AND GORDON

"A World Without Love"

mdh - What famous fictional character from the late 90s does Peter Asher resemble in the above video? The character is portrayed as living in the 60s.

From Wiki: "McCartney wrote the song when he was 16. When he moved into the London home of his then-girlfriend Jane Asher in 1963, sharing a room with her brother Peter Asher. Asher asked him if he could use the song after Asher and Gordon Waller had signed a recording contract as Peter and Gordon. McCartney described John Lennon's reaction to the song: 'The funny first line always used to please John. 'Please lock me away –' 'Yes, okay.' End of song.'

Lennon said of the song that 'I think that was resurrected from the past. ... I think he had that whole song before the Beatles. ... That has the line 'Please lock me away' that we always used to crack up at.'

McCartney did not think the song was good enough for The Beatles. As such, the song was never released by the Beatles, and the only known recording of the song by any member of the Beatles is the original demo of the song performed by McCartney, which is now in the possession of Peter Asher. As of January 2013, Paul McCartney's demo has been leaked on YouTube. It is 30 seconds in length, but offers a rare glimpse into the song's origins. The clip was played at Asher's most recent string of concerts."

Peter and Gordon - Nice choice, I liked their music. "Go To Pieces" was another fine song by them. The story with McCartney and Lennon was interisting. I personally think "A World Without Love" would have fit nicely into their library :) BTW - my sister is 8 years older than me also.

THE SEARCHERS

WIKI - The Searchers tied for being the second group from Liverpool, after the Beatles, to have a hit in the US when their "Needles and Pins" and the Swinging Blue Jeans' "Hippy Hippy Shake" both reached the Hot 100 on 7 March 1964.

mdh - Prior to your posting, if you asked me which group sings "Love Potion Number 9" and "Needles And Pins", believe it or not, I would have said, "I don't know!" I know the songs quite well, but I never knew it was The Searchers. Likewise, if you asked me what songs The Searchers sing, again I'd have to say, "I don't know." Crazy, I know! I liked both songs a lot and can remember them well on the radio back in the day.

KOG - So many songs and so many Groups/Artist it's hard to keep up or remember them all. That's one nice thing about the modern era, you can figure out almost anything eventually from the internet.

Cool Thermos, looks like you can pick up the lunch box now thanks to Ebay ;)

Johnny Rivers - I like his music. I believe "Swayin' to the Music" was his last top 40 hit (1977).
Adding to your post: From Wiki - Johnny Rivers career total is 9 Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 and 17 in the Top 40 from 1964 to 1977; he has sold well over 30 million records.... Not to Shabby :)
I knew he had quite a few good songs but didn't know he had 17 top 40 hits.

THE SPIRAL STARECASE

From Wiki:

"The group evolved from a four-piece instrumental group called the Fydallions, which formed in 1964 in Sacramento, California, for an Air Force talent contest. After leaving the Air Force, the band went on the road, playing five-hour lounge jobs on the Las Vegas circuit. The Fydallions, now a quintet consisting of Dick Lopes (saxophone), Bobby Raymond (bass guitar), Harvey Kaye (keyboards), Vinnie Parello (drums), and Pat Upton (guitar and lead vocals), were noticed by the A&R representative for Columbia Records, Gary Usher, while they were working in El Monte, California. Columbia signed the band, but insisted that they change their name. The band was renamed after the movie The Spiral Staircase, but with a deliberate misspelling."

mdh - I had always thought when I heard "Silence Is Golden" on the radio back in the day that it was the Four Seasons. I know it was the flip-side to the Four Seasons' "Rag Doll" originally. I guess I saw the FS singing it on television one day and just assumed it was them who I was hearing on the radio each time. Very interesting! Thanks to my aunt, I still have the following Tremeloes song on a 45 when she gave it to me back around 1967 which was written by Cat Stevens:

CLASSICS IV

They were originally the Classics, but were informed after releasing their first single under that name, there was already another act known as the Classics who had released a record. They derived their name from the Classic drum set. Since they had four members, they settled on the Classics IV.

Two of their major hits:

"Traces"

and

"Stormy"

I OWN the classics IV on Vinyl, 8 track (haha) and CD
Always a fan of the major hits- "Spooky", "Traces", "Stormy" and I liked "Everyday with you Girl" also.

GARY LEWIS AND THE PLAYBOYS

About 15 to 20 years ago, I saw them at a free local evening concert which was sponsored by the city. The show was cut short by at least half due to a thunderstorm that had rolled in.

From Wiki:

"This Diamond Ring" is a 1965 song written by Al Kooper, Bob Brass and Irwin Levine. It was first recorded by Sammy Ambrose on Musicor #1061, then by Gary Lewis & the Playboys[1] on Liberty #55756. Lewis' version charted first, #101 on the January 2, 1965, Billboard "Bubbling Under" chart. Both versions charted on January 9, Lewis still at #101 and Ambrose at #117. Ambrose dropped off the charts at that point, but Lewis made #65 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart the next week (January 16) and his version continued to climb until it reached #1 on February 20, 1965."

KOG - Sorry about that ;) ... It's like sitting in the parking lot with your blinker on and the car pulls out of the spot and the car coming the other way steals the space... LOL - I was fortunate to see ARS 3 times in the late 80's and early mid 90's. I remind my daughter that her first concert was an AMERICA concert in momma's womb.... great show in 93'
but she's also was with us at another fair when we saw ARS. Ronnie Hammond had come back. The sound was back ! Unfortunately - from WIKI - On December 28, 1998 singer Ronnie Hammond, who had battled alcoholism and depression off and on over the years, got into a confrontation with police in Macon, Georgia and forced an officer to shoot him. Hammond was seriously injured, but survived the injury and dealt with the depression. Today only Dean Daughtry (keybourds and backing vocals) is still alive and active with the band 1971-2020 He was also the keyboard player for ? the Classics IV.

Gary Lewis - I enjoyed the bands greatest hits and OWN one of their Gts hits LP. Also itunes and Spotify

Well, the only two songs I recall of his are "I'd Want You To Want Me" and "You And Me And A Dog Named Boo". I remember the latter getting a lot of airplay when I was a freshman in junior high school. It was extremely popular back then, I remember well!

PS: mdh - I liked reading your comments about your daughter being in the womb at the America concert then being at the ARS concert. Also enjoyed the mention of Dean Daughtry having been with both the Classics IV and ARS!

FREDA PAYNE

She is best known for her song, "Band Of Gold" which made it to #3 on the charts.

Her follow-up song that I truly don't remember hearing at #12 on the chart was "Bring The Boys Home".

"'Bring the Boys Home' was a hit for Freda Payne in 1971 during the Vietnam War era. It was an anti-war song which was aimed at the sending of troops to fight in an increasingly unpopular war. The song came out at a time when soldiers were returning to America dead and in body bags. A higher than normal amount of the soldiers were black. The soldiers were only boys at the age of 20, which was the average age that many of them were killed. In spite of the healthy amount of airplay it received in the US, the US Command from the American Forces Network banned it. The reason was that it would be of benefit to the enemy."

mdh - Nice choice going with Herman's Hermits! Did you know (according to the internet) Peter Noone's actual name is "Peter Blair Denis Bernard Noone"? What a long name, huh? Has to be one of the longest ever, LOL!

My favorite song of Herman's Hermits is probably, "There's A Kind Of Hush", which I believe is the flip side to "No Milk Today" or vice versa. I have that 45 in one of the closets as part of the collection of 45s my aunt gave me over 50 years ago.

I never really understood what the song title, "No Milk Today", actually meant. According to one person, Alan Oldie (whoever he is), says:

"In England, milk was delivered to the door in glass bottles and there was usually a regular order (Two pints please). The empty bottles were rinsed and left on the doorstep for the milkman to pick up with the next delivery. It wasn't unusual to leave a note in the top of a bottle for any variation ('one extra pint, please, we have company' or 'No milk for the next week, we are away').

'No milk today' was the most common, usually because for some reason the previous day's hadn't been used. Of course this matches in with the general thrust of the song. Only one person is living there now, the other has left, so not so much milk is being used, hence 'No milk today, it seems a common sight But people passing by don't know the reason why'.

And in case you're wondering, 'just two up, two down' describes a small English terraced house with two main rooms on the ground floor and two bedrooms above. I was brought up in a 'three up, two down' terraced house.

So, the final meaning is that a couple were living together in a small, very working-class house, but their love made it a palace. But now she has left him and he is alone with only his memories."

Saw Peter Noone on two different occasions here in my home town. If I remember correctly, he performed approximately 7-8 years between each concert. Both were held outdoors at night. Peter Noone is quite the entertainer with his fun and charming personality! I remember his guitar (or bass) player liked to spin around while performing. Something I noticed during the latter of the two performances was the number of t-shirts Peter Noone tossed out to the audience. Must have been around ten. My two sisters, my dad and I attended the second performance together. The seating was first come, first serve so we had front row seats. Most all the t-shirts Peter Noone tossed out to the audience were just heaved out with no intended recipient. One, however, he pointed directly to one of my sisters and gently tossed it to her. My guess is that he chose her because she is quite attractive, I must say, and surely caught his eye from the stage. The back of the t-shirt had the names of the cities the band was touring and the dates. It was funny seeing my small home town of about 35,000 among the names of large cities we all know well. On the front in red, white and blue was the Union Jack. And lastly, Peter Noone said he often gets mistaken for actor Nick Nolte.

They began as a duo formed by Allan Clarke and Graham Nash. Perhaps, my favorite Hollies song is the following which featured Elton John on the piano. It reached No.3 in the UK in October 1969, and No.7 in the US in March 1970.

We know that Gerry B covered one of the GATP's songs which was, "Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying." My favorite of their, however, is:

"Ferry Cross The Mersey"

I have never owned a Chevy van (nor any van), but I do own a white '87 Chevy El Camino. Have had it since 1998. Strangers around town often ask me if I'd sell it, but I tell them, "It's not for sale but thanks, anyway."

"Warnes recorded the song 'It Goes Like It Goes' for the 1979 motion picture 'Norma Rae'. The song won the Academy Award for Best Original Song. Her 1979 single 'I Know A Heartache When I See One', was a Top 10 Country hit and reached the Top 20 on both the Pop and Adult Contemporary charts."

"She has won two Grammy Awards, in 1983 for the Joe Cocker duet 'Up Where We Belong' and in 1988 for the Bill Medley duet '(I've Had) The Time of My Life'".

mdh - Ahh, the lovely voice of Karen Carpenter, OWN! I have their greatest hits on CD. Way back when (maybe when I was in junior high?) I had purchased the Carpenter's 45 of "We've Only Just Began". I can remember where I was on the day of her passing. She was only 32.

I had gone to a local record store that day and mentioned to the two owners about KC's passing. One of the two said something like, "No, what a terrible loss!" Unfortunately, he was being very sarcastic. Funny thing was... about two years later he passed away of AIDS! "No, what a terrible loss!" Said with sarcasm and not because of the cause of his death but because of what he said about Karen Carpenter's passing.

ANN MURRAY

Another great female singer from about the same time period as Karen Carpenter. I remember playing "Snowbird" a number of times on the juke box of the family restaurant back in the day.

In 2011, Billboard ranked her 10th on their list of the 50 Biggest Adult Contemporary Artists Ever.

KOG - yes, the loss of KC was tragic.
Ann Murry - I remember many of her hits, One strikes me today, with all the turmoil going on in this world we sure could use "A Little Good News" (1983). Billboards ranking is quite the honor :)

PLAYER

WIKI - Their biggest hit, "Baby Come Back", released in late 1977, rose to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in January 1978 and was a chart success in other countries. Their follow up single, "This Time I'm in It for Love", also peaked at No. 10 the same year. Among several notable accolades, Player was named Billboard's Best New Singles Artist of 1978. Eric Clapton invited them to open for him during his 1978 North American “Slow Hand” tour.

PROCOL HARUM

From the internet:

"Procol Harum: formed in London in 1967 and are most famous for the hit A Whiter Shade of Pale. In an interview, lyricist Keith Reid, who was always listed as a full-fledged member of the group on their albums, recalls the genesis of their name:

'It's the name of a cat, a Siamese cat. It's the pedigree name, and it belonged to a friend of ours, just somebody that we used to hang out with when we were forming the band. One day, somebody pulled out the cat's birth certificate and said 'Have a look at this', and the name of the cat was Procol Harum. And somebody else, in fact a chap called Guy Stevens who was quite instrumental in Gary [Brooker, the singer and pianist] and myself getting together in the first place, said, 'Oh, you must call the group Procol Harum'. And we just accepted that. We never even questioned it, never even thought if it was a good name, we just went ahead with that suggestion."

KOG - PROCOL HARUM - "A Whiter Shade of Pale" I didn't appreciate that song when I was young. It was a melancholy I didn't understand... Now it's a classic... :) . WP - I do not own but have on itunes and Spotify.

DANNY WILSON

Not a person named Danny Wilson but a band from Scotland. You may remember their hit from the 80s played on MTV back in the day. It went to number 3.

KOG - Danny Wilson, you got me on that one. I don't recall hearing that song. I see it reached # 3 on the UK chart and # 23 on US Billboard.
I was splitting time with music by 1987 and was listening to more country music at the time. I liked the sound and probably WP - :)

KOG - Sorry your having computer issues. I was hoping you were up and running so we could continue...
Today instead of a music video I thought I'd add one of my favorite forgotten albums. I think it's shows a more sophisticated and mature Dewey and Gerry.
WIKI - HOURGLASS is the 13th studio album by American folk rock duo America, released by American Gramaphone in 1994. This was America's first new studio album since 1984's Perspective. Two singles were released from the album, "Young Moon" and "Hope", but did not chart in the U.S. The songs did receive more airplay in Europe. The song "Hope" became a theme song for the TJ Martell Foundation and was
recorded by a group of country music stars in a fundraising effort for the Foundation. The recording of "You Can Do Magic" included here is not the hit version but a re-recording that is very similar.

Actor/musician Bill Mumy contributed to this album, co-writing "Sleeper Train" and "Greenhouse" and providing additional guitar work.

mdh - So sorry I didn't get back with you sooner. My computer is pretty much a goner. I'll have to have it serviced. Strangely, the only website I'm able to access is this one!

Regarding "Hourglass", I thought it was an excellent CD. I was so surprised and disappointed that it didn't have any songs that charted. I do know that Gerry received a Grammy nomination for "Hope" via the recording the country music artists did for the Martell Foundation. Plus, I liked D&G's re-recording of "California Revisited" as "Everyone I Meet Is From California".

I remember finding "Hourglass" at the record store not knowing it was to be released. It was such a wonderful surprise! I also remember being very impressed with the whole release and all of its wonderful songs!

KOG - While we wait for you to return, I'm gonna continue down the America road. Looking back at mid 90's music I feel it was all over the place so it's sad that the guys couldn't find a place on BB's top 100. There was a lot of competition and I liked the two songs they released as singles "Young Moon" and "Hope", I feel they are the best two cuts on the Album but I think they dove into a sea of youth.
Top 100 Rock and Roll Songs of 1994

I don't know who decides how many songs are released but they may have stopped short. I feel that "Mirror To Mirror might have been a good choice as it has an upbeat and perhaps a bit angry tempo sound.


"Mirror To Mirror"
