The Sunderland Brothers
« on: December 28, 2019, 07:24:53 pm »

Sometimes one discovers music that is new to them in the most round about ways....one of my FB friends posted the original version of a song that Rod Stewart later recorded called "Sailing". It was written by The Sunderland Brothers whose version is here:

I liked that just fine, but then decided to explore their catalog more fully. Here's another fave I found:

On that page, I saw a suggestion for a band called McGuinness Flint...bear in mind, I'd never heard of either of these bands.....they both date to the early/mid 1970's. Here's a goodie from McGuinness Flint:

Reminded me a bit of Badfinger with a bit of whimsy. This band was started by Manfred Mann alum Tom McGuinness...also in the group were the guys who went on to have anumber of UK hits under the name Gallagher & Lyle.

Check them out! :-)
