RARE & SCRATCHY ROCK 'N ROLL #_038 CELEBRATES THE COMPLETE HIT SINGLES HISTORY OF THREE DOG NIGHT
This episode spotlights one of the most popular rock acts of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
The group took its name from an indigenous Australian term for a very cold night, and this band was very hot on the charts with 23 hit singles and 13 hit albums between 1969 and 1976.
It also might have been one of the most successful “cover bands” of all time – most of its songs were recorded by somebody else before this group did them.
You’re about to sample all of this act’s hit singles and hear all about this group’s connections with “The Flintstones” cartoon show, Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, Eric Burdon & The Animals, Aretha Franklin, and Otis Redding, as well as Pete Seeger, Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman, Laura Nyro, Paul Williams, and Hoyt Axton, among many others.
You know the group that we’re proudly presenting on this podcast – it’s Three Dog Night.
