ON THIS DAZE IN CHART HISTORY - JULY 27, 1971!

Moving up 12 to #48 on this day in 1971 was "Mother Freedom" by 70's superstars Bread. This was without a doubt the hardest-edged tune that ever charted for them; since it didn't have any pickup lines that people could use in their romantic pursuits, it would end up only peaking at #37.

Bread and David Gates material hold a special place in The Retro Attic's hearts, so keep tuning in!

ON THIS DAZE IN CHART HISTORY - JULY 26, 1973!

Coming in at #18(up 4) on this day in 1973 was the third top 10 hit for Irishman Gilbert O'Sullivan, who was known for his college sweater fashion sense. This peaked at #7 and is probably the least-played of his top 10 hits. I remember hearing this all of the time back then and now it proudly takes residence in The Retro Attic rotation!

A chart side note: also on this day in '73, Maureen McGovern raced up 11 spots to #9 with "The Morning After" from the classic film "The Poseidon Adventure." It would soon hit #1, and I remember Casey Kasem not liking it too much when it got there. At that time, American Top 40 was predicting what would be #1 the following week, and Casey made a quick and confident prediction that she would be knocked off the top. He was right! It's all good though; I would rather listen to a Maureen McGovern hits collection than a bunch of so-called LMFAO classics!

ON THIS DAZE IN CHART HISTORY - JULY 25, 1969!

The Underground Sunshine were a late 60's quartet made up of members from Wisconsin and Germany. On this day in 1969, their one and only hit(a remake of The Beatles' White Album classic track "Birthday") jumped up 24 spots to #76. It would eventually peak at #26.

Their sole album on the Intrepid label is worth hunting down for its cool psychedelia. The highlight for me was their tripped-out 8 minute workout of "Gimme Some Lovin'," the Spencer Davis Group hit.

Enjoy this rare lipsynch clip of "Birthday" from American Bandstand and keep your ears open for this long-forgotten top 40 hit here on The Retro Attic!
