Number 887 - Captain & Tennille
Number 887 Captain & Tennille "Do That To Me One More Time" (1979)
Husband & Wife team Captain & Tennille (Are there any others? Hmmm?) were very popular in the 70's with a handful of hits. If it wasn't Glam of the 70's it was couples dominating the charts i.e Carpenters, Donny & Marie Osmond (Brother & Sister) Kermit & Leo Sayer ( erm, yes well). (Yes there was .. Ike & Tina Turner! 27.10.06)
"When they met in 1971 in San Francisco, Dragon (Captain) had been performing for a few years as a keyboardist for The Beach Boys and Tennille was staging a musical she had written called Mother Earth at the Marines Memorial Theatre. Tennille hired Dragon as a musician for the production after which, in turn, Dragon helped Tennille land a gig as a touring keyboardist with The Beach Boys."
"They soon discovered they made a great team on their own and began performing on a regular basis at The Smokehouse club in Encino, California (Los Angeles), initially billed as The Dragons. Their popularity as a musical duo reached unprecedented heights for The Smokehouse which, after Dragon & Tennille released a single on their own label (Butterscotch Castle Records) as Captain & Tennille, eventually led to a recording contract with A&M Records." "Their first single was a cover version of Neil Sedaka's Love Will Keep Us Together. The song contained a verbal acknowledgment to its composer, as The Captain & Tennille worked the line "Sedaka is back" into the fadeout. The song spent four weeks at number one in the US in the summer of 1975 and became the top selling single of the year. They also received a Grammy Award for Record of the Year for this recording, which also gave Sedaka his first Grammy. They married in November of 1975"
