*The song, I Found You, was recorded and released in 1962 by Yvonne Fair. She had a most popular artist at the time who produced the record with her. Her producer then took the song and put his signature spin on it with a new title when he recorded and released it 2 years later. It is a great example of a funk song with lyrics supporting the intended groove. Name the artist and extra credit for the title of the track...
*This artist was a huge part of a 60's band and then embarked on a solo career when that band broke up. Following a couple of early folk records and a 1972 solo album, he released this track and album a year later. He assembled a versatile backup band using piano, violin and horns to accompany his tenor voice in arrangements that recalled some of the early work of Van Morrison. No surprise there as this artist and Morrison utilized some of the same backup musicians. Name the artist...
*Justin Hayward of The Moody Blues has a personal favorite of all Moody's songs he's written. He loves performing it and while it didn't chart as well as others, there was a reason. It was not a massive hit due to its length of 6 minutes and the fact that no one ever did a successful edit on it. He incorporated similar elements to the track that he employed on the great song, Your Wildest Dreams. Name the song...
*The lead character on this song is an aspiring actress who is breaking into the business. It's told from the perspective of her ex-boyfriend, whom she ditched because he couldn't advance her career. Despite the song, released in 1977 on an album with only 7 tracks, the writer wants us to imagine that the song and its events take place at a seedy photo shoot in Los Angeles in the 1950's. The title of the track is the name of the character...with no other significance other than the fact that the name fit! Name the band and the song...
