In 76, this US male group,

had us up on the dance floor,

when ‘Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel’

exploded into the UK charts at No.4.

 

‘Don’t Take Away The Music’,

they so convincingly did implore,

as their second UK hit,

once again climbed to No.4.

 

77  brought 3 more hits –

these guys could do no wrong!

The ‘Mighty Power Of Love’,

being their next song to come along.

 

Then, Whodunnit’ made the Top Ten,

and ‘One Step Away’ reached  No.16  –

All their hits on the Capitol label,

and loved by every Disco teen.

 

In 78, ‘The Ghost Of Love’

got as high as No.29,

then ‘More Than A Woman’, at No 7 –

another Top Ten we thought divine.

 

Their last single of 78,

was ‘Slow Train To Paradise’, at 62,

and then a gap of 8 years,

before two hits, long overdue.

 

‘Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel’,

peaked at No 12, in 86,

and ‘It Only Takes A Minute’ –

the last hit, in this great ‘Tavares’ mix.
