Looking Glass, who did "Brandy." For the longest time, I had always assumed that they were a black group, or at least the lead singer was black.
Another one I just thought of was the Soul Survivors. That was a soulful lead singer. But Expressway To Your Heart has more of a rock/soul sound than the one I linked to - kind of a Rascals sound. Though that didn't stop me from thinking that the Soul Survivors were African-American for decades.
But this one. Wow. I am still shaking my head in disbelief. That is one soulful white man.
For some reason I thought for a long time that the lead singers of Looking Glass and King Harvest might be the same guy.
I only found out about 15 years ago that Sonny Geraci sang both Time Won't Let Me and Precious And Few. I couldn't believe it.
My mother saw BeeGees on daytime TV (Mike Douglas I think) or so she thought. When she told me the makeup of the group, I ran it by my friends who knew more about the brothers than I did at the time. They laughed. As it turns out I think the group she actually saw was Tavares. Oops!
There's an excuse for that: they performed the same tune in Saturday Night Fever. dL
When Rock Your Baby by George McCrae came out in 1974 I was 11 and I thought it was sung by a woman until I found out that the singer was named George! I also thought that the song was about an infant www.youtube.com/watch?v=arxhW1RgDDo
