*How do you spell success from 1969-1975? This band had 21 hit singles, 11 in the top ten. They covered hits by Lennon/McCartney, Neil Young, Robbie Robertson, Traffic, Dave Mason and Elton John. Name the band...
*This 'Down Under' band recorded their first album...an eponymous one at that...in 1975. The band wasn't known as much by their individual names as much as the band as a whole. (A subject that will be explored in depth on future shows)... We'll play their debut international single. Name the band and extra credit for the track name...
*A fellow by the name of Tandyn Almer was a successful songwriter in the 60's and 70's...close friends with Brian Wilson and wrote a classic one for the Beach Boys, (Sail On Sailor). But he also wrote a song for a band in tomorrow's BOTB's contest ...it was the first hit for the group. The band's follow-up release then went all the way to the #1 spot. The song in question...the 1966 track...their intro to the world. Name the band and extra credit for the name of their first hit...with even more credit if you know the follow-up track that went to #1....
*If you like to read fiction, perhaps with a western flair...you may have encountered this artist's father's books. It appears the artist inherited those storytelling abilities and went a couple steps forward, putting those lyrics into songs.
His debut album in 1989 was memorable, but we'll see some quite steady improvement that resulted in a new album released last year. Name the artist...
