leejohnson's current selection is:
Lay Your Love on Me
by Racey

#1978

Complete radio fodder back in the late Seventies. Much too busy with a young family to concentrate enough on music, but I did hear it multiple times in the background as I changed nappies or got down to similar such tasks. A few back-up facts now from the "Hits of the 70s" blog:

70s Artist 'Racey'
on May 22nd 2018

This fun pop group came from Weston-Super-Mare in the UK, and it was Phil Fursdon and Clive Wilson who formed the group in 1976 (both were band members). Pop gods Mike Chapman and Nicky Chinn were the guiding producers and writers behind the group.

The very first single by 'Racey' was "Baby It's You", written by 'Smokie' group member Chris Norman. The single was a very minor hit in the BBC charts.

It was in 1978 when they had their first major breakthrough single called "Lay Your Love on Me", on the 'RAK' label.

On to the next year, and the biggest hit the group ever had was "Some Girls" which reached No. 3 in 1979.

The last big single was in 1979 and was called "Boy Oh Boy", but it only reached No. 22 and was written by Roger Ferris who used to be a sound engineer for 'The Beatles'.

Band member Pete Miller died from cancer in 2006.

Born in 1954, leaving education by 1972, 'glam' was my thing, "Ziggy" Bowie my hero. I was even the only guy in my town with the haircut (though not the carrot red colouring!). Therefore every seventh selection is a Bowie track.
