I Want You Back-Jackson 5 #1
Highest debut I'm Gonna Make You Love Me-Steam #26 New

Are there enough songs for me to make a February 1970 CD from the KFXM and K/men surveys that I would like to listento a few times. How about?
Let's Work Together-Wilbert Harrison
The Thrill Is Gone-B.B. King

Why Should I Cry-Gentrys
Rainy Night In Georgia-Brook Benton

Oh Well-Fleetwood Mac
Celebrate-Three Dog Night
Thank You-Sly & The Family stone

Oh Me, Oh My-Lulu
Victoria-Kinks
and to get my album of 12 songs, I would have to put on a couple flip sides of two songs on the survey
Travelin' Band-Creedence Clearwater Revival
Keep The Customer Satisfied-Simon & Garfunkel

Never heard I'M GONNA MAKE
YOU LOVE ME by Steam.
Follow up to Na Na....

Proves they were truly
a 1-hit wonder.
I think they were a studio group.
And there have been many of
those...Archies...etc.

THE DOUGMASTER'S SECOND DESERT ISLAND DISK compilation CD sounds as good as the first issue, maybe even better... put me down for one, please!

Lord Darth Sidious said...

say, i thought 'THE ARCHIES' were a local street gang of some sort headed by a wild-eyed, long-haired crazy guy named Zed -- as per Steve Guttenberg in "Police Academy II"... and, oh yeah, they also put out records, too!!

ARCHIES smarchies, golden
arches.

Ron Dante was the Sugar Sugar
of them all.

Number One record "Sugar, Sugar" was the "product of a group of studio musicians managed by Don Kirshner. Ron Dante's lead vocals were accompanied by those of Toni Wine {American Top 40 staffer} (who sang the line "I'm gonna make your life so sweet"), Andy Kim, and Ellie Greenwich (famed songwriter-composer). Together, they provided the voices of the various Archies using multi-tracking. Ray Stevens, the comic singer, provided the hand claps to the song."

...and this One is still getting dental work done as a result of the recorded bubblegum sweetness from that period!

I guess Sugar Sugar was the last
and ultimate Bubble Gum song
of the 60s.

I don't think that genre made
it into the 70s.

BUBBLEGUMMER MUSAK DID CONTINUE for a couple years into the 1970's decade with such acts as the Jackson Five, The Osmonds. The Partridge Family, The Bradys and the DeFranco Family (along with various familial permuations)...
and none too soon because the teeth i used to cut my chops in the radio biz had become
none-too-useful by then, whoa!

Those 12 tunes are the greatest ! Especially "Let's work together" by Wilburt Harrison. I play the Canned Heat version on 98.5 KDES from time to time which I also like. As I recall when I was music director at KFXM I heard Wilburt's song on KRLA and added it. Played it a lot and local record sales followed. Jonny Bruce

SAY, JONNY B., HAVE YOU HEARD the earlier 1962 version of Wilbert Harrison's "Let's Work Together" --originally titled, "Let's Stick Together" on Fury Records?
as the younglings today would say, it sounds 'totally rad'.
you can catch it on YouTube.

In the case of this song, the words "stick" and "work" stand for something else, but for the life of me, I'm way too old to recall what that word is.

Any ideas?

Yes, I bought "Let's Stick Together" at a thrift shop when "Let's Work Together" came out ! I recall playing it on KFXM once. Thanks for letting me know it is on You Tube as I lost the record years ago. I have found many old favorites there. Jonny Bruce
