6. A common thread in some of these old 70's hits

Tony Burrows sang the lead vocals on several one-hit 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" (July 1974). He also sang lead vocals on The Brotherhood of Man's "United We Stand", which reached #10 on the UK charts and also reached #13 in the U.S.

7. That makes sense.

So many of those songs sounded alike. Now I know why! Tony Burrows!

9. His voice was so joyful and free

he was a powerful performer who influenced a whole music scene without anyone knowing his name.

10. It is very joyful music.

It's kind of a shame that there are all these songs made famous because of him, but no one knows who Tony Burrows is!

Thanks for the info!

21. From 1971. It only hit #33 on the hot 100




I just rediscovered this one last week while looking for something else.
--------------
And... from the summer of '69





The best thing about the "minor" hits is that they can drop you right back to those days better than the big hits that have been overplayed and are a running soundtrack to your life.
