We talked last week of my musical era and I probably discounted the 70’s which was a little unfair as there was still plenty to enjoy . From 1972 came the remarkable talent of Peter Skellern who may have been the first person to introduce the brass band to a pop record. Without further ado ……
From 1974 there’s a record I love (amongst many) by a group who took the world by storm and ended the same way. The lead singer and writer of most of the hits Roger Hodgson left the band in 1983. An agreement with the band was that they would not play any of his songs. This was broken leading to a feud that carried on for years. Mr Hodgson still tours playing the songs he made famous with the group. This is one of the best.
Now we nip back to the 60’s for one of my favourite groups of all time. This record came out in 1966 and is perhaps not the one you usually hear when something of theirs is played. I hope you like it. This group were the epitome of vocal harmony.
As a treat I’m giving you a hit single from 1990 which is almost the limits of my real musical knowledge (I stopped listening to music soon after though some gems did sneak into my brain occasionally which we may sample in the future).
Notice anything about the fantastic vocal harmony here? This is the daughter of John and Michelle Phillips of The Mamas and the Papas along with two daughters of Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys. I’d say there was some talent inherited there. They formed in 1989 and still perform.
Have a great weekend everyone and don’t forget the hugs even if they still can’t be given in person. Lets heal the world with love.
Massive Hugs to you all.
