Artist
Song Title
Ambrosia
Holdin' On To Yesterday
They would go on to score a pair of Top 10 hits with "How Much I Feel" and "Biggest Part Of Me", but it was their first single in 1975 that captured their sound best.
Addrisi Brothers
Slow Dancin'
Brothers Dick and Don songwriters first...writing "Never My Love" for The Association. In the late 70's they had a few minor hits, the biggest being "Slow Dancin'". This fits nicely in a mix that would include Seals & Crofts, America and Player.

Chi Coltrane
Thunder And Lightning
In the vein of Freda Payne and Smith, Chi Coltrane had pipes and a funky, building horn-laden pop gem that went to #17 back in 1972. This would be right at home in a Quentin Tarrantino movie.
City Boy
5.7.0.5.
A one-hit wonder from 1978. City Boy was an English band in the tradition of Queen and Sweet. Big powerful riffs and multi-layered harmonies were their signature sound.
Bram Tchaikovsky
Girl Of My Dreams
This 1979 one-hit wonder from England's Bram Tchaikovsky is always cited as one of the 70's best power pop songs. It peaked at #37 that year and is one of the decades best kept secrets.
Bunny Sigler
Let Me Party With You
This Philly R&B singer just missed the Top 40 in 1978 with his party anthem that was a Soul Train staple that year. It's vibe was taken directly from Marvin Gaye's huge hit "Got To Give It Up" from the previous year.
Gary Wright
Phantom Writer
Following up his 2 monster hits from the Dream Weaver LP was no easy task. Phantom Writer peaked at only #43, but deserved a better fate.
New England
Don't Ever Wanna Lose Ya
This New York band had a big sound and a decent regional following. These guys were a smarter version of the hair bands that would come in the 80's and give the genre a black eye.
Moon Martin
Rolene
Moon Martin was know for writing "Bad Case Of Loving You" by Robert Palmer and for Jude Cole being a band member. Rolene was his only Top 40 hit, reaching #30 in 1979. Martin's pop treasure resides somewhere between the Robert Palmer song and Jude Cole's later output. Great pop song.
amazon
Sanford Townshend Band
Smoke From A Distant Fire
This California duo went Top 10 with this soft rock classic in 1977. Their sound was part West Coast country rock and blue-eye Soul. Hearing this on the radio was a breath of fresh air.
Sniff N' The Tears
Driver's Seat
The Summer of 79 was the year this pop-rock track hit the airwaves...and it still sounds great!
Starz
Cherry Baby
New York's Starz was a regional success and was able to land several singles on to Billboard's Hot 100 in the mid-late 70's. Their biggest hit was this pop-rock piece of ear candy called 'Cherry Baby".
Q
Dancin' Man
Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania brought us New York Jet quarterback Joe Namath and this 4 piece band called Q. Two of the members were previously in The Jaggerz ("The Rapper"). in 1977 this swingin' shag tune climbed all the way to #23 on the Top 40.
amazon
Sutherland Brothers & Quiver
I Don't Want To Love You (But You Got Me Anyway)
The closest brothers Iain and Gavin got to a Top 40 hit was this song, peaking at #48 in 1973. It's got a nice chorus and sounds sooooo 1973...in a good way. Nice harmonies and a laid back acoustic guitar-driven tune.
Instant Funk
I've Got My Mind Made Up
These guys used to back up Bunny Sigler (also from Philadelphia) and became a Soul Train sensation in 1979. This would be their only Top 40 hit.
