Released in 1980 on RSO Records, the album included the hit single "Good Friends" featured in the Bill Murray film "Meatballs". After a few years on the Ariola Records label, Mary joined a the RSO team and experimented with a more "pop" sound. Although the record did little to bring the recognition her vocals deserved, the songs are prime contemporary ear-candy! The track list is:

1. Dancin' Like Lovers
2. You're Just Between Love
3. Somebody Please
4. Love, What Took You So Long
5. Anything But Yes Is Still a No
6. Good Friends
7. Randy
8. I Can't Hold On
9. Dominos
10. Never Give Up

Produced by David J Holman, RSO released one more single. This album is one of the few gems from 1980 and has to be heard to be truly appreciated. It's a shame this became Mary's final album, with a voice like her's, she should have had a much longer career. We can only wish it will on day be released on CD!

Considering the plethora of CDs covering far more obscure 1970s vocalists, it's hard to fathom why Mary MacGregor (born in St. Paul, Minnesota on May 6, 1948), who had 7 nationally-charting singles from 1976 to 1980, including a # 1, and who also had 4 LPs released in that span, has no current and decently-priced CD available. More or less discovered by Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul & Mary while singing with different bands on tour, she began doing backup work for Yarrow, including his album Love Songs, before inking a contract with the German -based Ariola Records' U.S. subsidiary Ariola America, launched in 1975 in L.A.

Towards the end of 1976 she released the Yarrow-penned Torn Between Two Lovers on Ariola America 7638, and by December/January 1977 it had reached # 1 on both the Billboard Pop Hot 100 and Adult Contemporary (AC) charts, as well as # 3 Country b/w I Just Want To Love You. That resulted in her first album, naturally titled "Torn Between Two Lovers" out of which emerged two more charting singles, each written by Yarrow, with This Girl (Has Turned Into A Woman) making it to # 27 AC, # 36 Country and # 46 Hot 100 in May 1977 on Ariola America 7662 b/w Good Together, and For A While topping out at # 38 AC, # 86 Country and # 90 Hot 100 in August on Ariola America 7667 b/w The Lady I Am. She clearly had appeal across the spectrum of popular music but working against greater success for the last two records was the lingering appeal of Torn Between Two Lovers among DJs, juke box players and record buyers well into 1977.

In 1978 she had her second LP released titled "In Your Eyes" and from this came one charted single, the April 1978 # 29 AC I've Never Been To Me b/w In Your Eyes on Ariola America 7677.

This is beautiful music. I wish I could get it digitally remasters. The first time I heard the track "Good Friends" I knew I had to have it.
