I've been waiting for someone to post that one!
Kudos sir...or ma'am.
I think I shall toss up a few more with everyone's kind permission:
This first one comes to us from Cleveland Ohio and that would make the year 1972. Allmusic described their sound as: "exquisitely crafted melodies and
achingly gorgeous harmonies". I can find no fault with that accessment...
Okay, I'll admit at the time of his emergence onto the music scene, I couldn't stand Richard Marx. I was determined that nothing was going to change
my mind on this. Then along came a very special woman who showed me just how wrong I could be...
If I had to pin it all on one aspect, I'd say it was the mullet Marx sported that I couldn't stand but as time went by I began to realize that it's

This last one is one of Roch's best. Like Helene it managed to garner him some international noteriety but it was mostly in Europe and America
