AP,
I don't know what happened. I tuned in for Jimi Hendrix and got the Rat Pack instead.

JC,

It's pledge drive time for the ones in my area, probably yours too so they may have opted for The Rat Pack to target the older more conservative crowd.

2112,

The Stories 2nd minor hit 'Mammy Blue' was also a cover.

Original - Mammy Blue

I think the "original" is 100 times better and more soulful too.

Does anyone remember a band called The Aire Apparent. I saw them in 1968, as the opening act for Eric Burdon and The Animals. I've done a google search and an 80s metal band is all I can find. I believe they had a radio hit, or at least some airplay.

I found what I was looking for. They were an Irish band The Éire Apparent. They used to be The People,(not People who had the hit "I Love You") They were signed by Chas Chandler (of The Animals) and the guitar player was Henry McCullough, who was later with Spooky Tooth and McCartney and Wings. Hendrix played on the only album recorded by The Eire Apparent.

The People "I Love You". One of my favorites! 1967, I think.

I think The Zombies also recorded it.

Yes, and currently Stories is the only version of "Mammy Blue" I have.

In 1971, two years before Stories, "Mammy Blue" was a chart single for a group called Pop-Tops, formerly Los Pop Tops.
I don't have it yet, but there's a various artists CD that's on my "to get list" that does have it.

Though neither reached the top-40, Stories (#50) chart peak was an improvement over Pop-Tops (#57).

I can't tell by the wording of your post if you're saying "Mammy Blue" was Stories second chart hit,
which is incorrect,
or if you're saying that "Mammy Blue" was indeed their second *minor" hit, but their third chart single overall,
which is correct.

Stories' first chart single, which just missed becoming their first top-40 single, was 1972's "I'm Coming Home" (#42).
This is not the same song as the same-titled song that The Spinners would place in the top-20 in 1974.

Following "Mammy Blue", Stories would score one more minor chart single on the Hot 100.
That was "If It Feels Good, Do It", which only got inside the top-90 in 1974. It was credited as by Ian Lloyd & Stories.

In 1979, Ian Lloyd had his only solo chart single when "Slip Away" reached #50. It was on the Scotti Brothers label.
It is not the same-titled song as Clarence Carter's 1968 top-10 hit.
Nor is it the same-titled song that Pablo Cruise stalled at #75 with in 1981.
Ian Lloyd's "Slip Away" was written by Ric Ocasek (of the Cars), but never appeared on an album by The Cars.

Unfortunately and in spite of alot of searching,
I have yet to find any evidence that "Slip Away" by Ian Lloyd has ever been on a CD.
But at least I have all three of Stories Kama Sutra albums on CD, plus an import compilation CD.

F. Hincholson:

I don't where you got that from, but The Eire Apparent and People had nothing to do with each other.

I wanted to double check my facts before I wrote here, so I checked the bios of both bands,
and found no connection between the two at all.

The Eire Apparent, as you said, were from Northern Ireland.

People, (there is no "The"), were an American band from San Jose, California, and was lead by Larry Norman (vocals).
Other members were Gene Mason (vocals), Jeoff Levin (guitar), Robb Levin (bass),
Albert Ribisi (keyboards) and Denny Friedkin (drums). (None of these *people (pun, sorry) were ever in Eire Apparent).

You are right about the origins of the song. People's 1968 top-15 "I Love You" was a remake of the original by The Zombies.

I saw it on Wikipidia, which could be wrong.

In 1966 guitarist Henry McCullough (formerly of The Sky Rockets Showband and Gene & The Gents) from Portstewart in Northern Ireland teamed up with bassist Chris Stewart (born Eric Christopher Stuart, 1946, Belfast, Co Antrim), singer Ernie Graham (born Ernest Harold Graham, 14 June 1946, Belfast) and drummer Davy Lutton (born William David Lutton, 1946, Belfast) in the psychedelic outfit The People, who initially also included keyboard player Eric Wrixon. 'The People' - who had evolved out of earlier band 'Tony & The Telstars' - developed a reputation on the Blackpool and Dublin music scenes and contributed to the 1966 compilation album Ireland's Greatest Sounds: Five Top Groups From Belfast's Maritime Club.

lol! I think they were two different bands. I just found an article(on Wikipedia) about People, which confirms what you said. Thanks for the info!

F Hincholson:

That really confuses me. Wikipedia is the first of two sources where I double checked my facts.
There was no cross-reference mentioned.

Now perhaps there was another group I've never of called THE People that you're confusing with People.

As I stated before, there is no "The" in the group name of the band who had the 1968 hit with "I Love You".
Their group name is just simply the one word, "People". (Like "Foreigner", as opposed to "The Foreigner").

I was looking at the article about The Eire Apparent, and it has a section about 'The People'. Apparently, 'The People' and 'People', were two different bands. People were from San Jose, California. The People were from Belfast. People are the ones who did "I Love You". I have no idea who The People were. I saw it on wikipedia, and took it for granted they were talking about the "I Love You" band. lol!

Thanks for helping me straighten it out.
