*In 1989, this band (perhaps bordering on being a 1-hit wonder group) first tried to record it with their lead singer using his regular voice with a song title of She's My Baby. No one liked it though. So, they revamped the lyrics and the singer pulled out his best falsetto as they changed the title to something that actually became a big hit...in a rather 'earworm' kind of way. And it may continue running through your head after we play it later this evening. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the song...
*By 1997, this great trio of artists were inexplicably without a label thanks to a drastic artistic slump. Rather undaunted, they began work on a new album, paying for studio time out of their own pockets. Enter an old friend who got wind of the endeavor and they once again became a quartet of artists. The last gent in, contributed 4 songs (a great thing), but his well-chronicled tinkering delayed the finished product for a couple of months. Name the band...
*J.J. Cale wrote many a song played by artists and bands who just loved what he brought to the music scene. This song was initially recorded by Cale in the early 70's and then recorded by an exceptional rock group three years after Cale's release. The track exquisitely fit the concept of the band that savored simplicity and rolled with whatever direction they happened to take. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the track...
*We'll play a track by this incredible band from 2012. It is a dreamy slice of 5-part harmony and was the first single released from the band's first album of new material in 2 decades. They wrote and recorded it just ahead of their 50th anniversary tour, one that started in April of 2012. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the song...
