A lot of these performers had multiple albums – and some had some pretty good follow on music – but for the most part they had that one big hit that pretty much “defined” them.
First up – ( and not in any particular order ) – Quarterflash . . .
Bertie Higgins – What the hell is a Bertie Higgins ?? Is he some kin to that JC Higgins fella you was talking about ?? See what I mean ? And as soon as you hear the song open you’ll be like – Oh Yeah, I know that song !!
Sniff ‘n’ The Tears – they had an almost cult following – great group – but some of their fans – Just Wow!!
John Stewart was a prolific song writer – wrote a bunch of neat stuff over the years – “Daydream Believer” ring any bells?? And yet for most people he was only known for one song . . .
Zager and Evans – “2525” – just an incredible piece of work – number one on Billboard for six weeks – their next single ” Mr. Turnkey” failed to chart in either the U.S. or the U.K.
Dennis Zager is still around and still making what a lot of folks consider “the best ” guitar in the business – can’t vouch for that – I don’t do guitars –just guitar cases – maybe something along these lines – LOL!!
Any suggestions for music ? – Let me know – I’m gonna do several posts with ” both kinds of music ” – Enjoy !!
I want to run one more at you . . .
Few – Very Few – hits achieved not only U.S. popularity but few achieved the international magnitude of this. . .
Del Shannon had several minor hits besides this – earlier stuff and later – but everything he did was put up against this – and nothing matched up to it. . .
Runaway was so popular it was adapted for a short lived TV series – any body remember this starrimg Dennis Farina ???
Still migrating “stuff” over from the other site and have a bunch of new stuff – getting it out as fast as I can . . .
Have Fun! – Run the Gun! – and remember – Fish Heads are Cheap !!
