Archived 2022 Play Backs ~ worth another spin ~ 
      Check then out.

   This band originated in Los Angeles where they first achieved success with a sound which fused folk and rock & roll.  The band would achieve even greater success performing pop music.  They played the Hollywood Bowl with Sonny and Cher.  The Doors opened for them for a week at Los Angeles' Whiskey a Go Go.  The band played the Ed Sullivan show twice and Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour three times.    When they headlined a six-week stint at "The Speakeasy" in London, famous musicians were among the audience. Big names included John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, and Graham Nash.  Paul McCartney was there too.  McCartney told them, "I like your tunes."  We here at ISHBAH like their tunes also and think this one of theirs Should Have Been A Hit.

    This singer was signed to Motown in 1961. Her biggest solo hit with Motown was "Take Me In Your Arms (Rock Me a Little While)" which reached No. 4 on the R & B charts and No. 50 on the Pop charts in 1965.  The song was also covered by the Isley Brothers, Blood Sweat & Tears, Jermaine Jackson, the Doobie Brothers and Phil Collins. Her biggest claim to fame was singing the classic hit "It Takes Two" with Marvin Gaye in 1966, and her later recording of the Black National Anthem, "Lift Every Voice and Sing". We here at ISHBAH feel that this song of hers also should have been a big hit for her.  Hopefully our fans will help us rectify this Helpless situation.
