VMS-17 - DAWN 1971 DE / Vinyl;EX+ - Cover: EX+ ------------- Also known as Dawn Dawn featuring Tony Orlando Origin from; New York City, New York, United States Genres; Pop, Poprock ------- Early history Tony Orlando was born Michael Anthony Orlando Cassavitis on 3 April 1944.[1] After almost a decade of singing and with only three Top 40 hits, two in 1961 and another in 1969 as the lead singer for the studio group Wind, he had not had any further successes. He stopped singing entirely, and by 1970 he was a retired demo singer. He began publishing music for April-Blackwood Music, a division of Columbia Records, instead. Then Orlando received "Candida," a song that other producers and singers had turned down. Orlando was not able to originally lend his name to the song, as he was working for April-Blackwood, and recording under his own name would be a professional conflict of interest. After an insistence by producer Hank Medress that he dub his voice over the male vocals on the original track, the single was released on Bell Records as being performed by the band "Dawn", to protect his position. The background singers on the track were Sharon Greane, Linda November, Jay Siegel, and Toni Wine, who co-wrote the song. Phil Margo played drums on the original session, and the arranger was Norman Bergen. After the single hit No. 3 on the Hot 100 (#1 on the Cashbox Top 100), Orlando wanted to start performing again. The ensemble then recorded the follow-up song "Knock Three Times", which topped the Hot 100 on 23 January - 6 February 1971.[2] Bell Records was desperate to have a real-life act to promote Dawn's records. Orlando asked former Motown/Stax backing vocalists Telma Hopkins and Joyce Vincent Wilson to become Dawn. The threesome then went on the road after "Candida" and "Knock Three Times". After a tour of Europe, Hopkins and Vincent assumed background vocal duties in the studio as well. They were joined in the studio by Vincent's sister Pamela Vincent, who in addition to singing, arranged all the backing vocals. Prior touring commitments with Aretha Franklin prevented Vincent from appearing with Dawn on tour. The first single with their voices in the background was "Runaway/Happy Together" in 1972. The group (now billed as 'Dawn featuring Tony Orlando') released another single in 1973, and it almost immediately became their next No. 1 single — "Tie a Yellow Ribbon 'Round the Ole Oak Tree." In terms of sales, this single was the most successful in the group's career, starting a string of seven consecutive Hot 100 appearances with long titles by the group. ------- Hit singles 1970 "Candida" No. 3 US (Gold); CB No. 1; No. 9 UK; No. 8 AC 1970 "Knock Three Times" b/w "Home" No. 1 US (Gold); CB No. 1; No. 1 UK; No. 2 AC 1971 "I Play and Sing" No. 25 US; CB No. 22; No. 15 AC 1971 "Summer Sand" No. 33 US; CB No. 19; No. 9 AC 1971 "What Are You Doing Sunday" No. 39 US; CB No. 26; No. 3 UK; No. 23 AC 1972 "Runaway/Happy Together" No. 79 US; CB No. 41 1972 "Vaya con Dios" No. 95 US; CB No. 60; No. 37 AC 1972 "You're a Lady" No. 70 US; CB No. 68 1973 "Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree" No. 1 US (Gold); CB No. 1; No. 1 UK; No. 1 AC 1973 "Say, Has Anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose" No. 3 US (Gold); CB No. 4; No. 12 UK ; No. 1 AC 1973 "Who's in the Strawberry Patch with Sally" No. 27 US; CB No. 13; No. 37 UK (1974 release); No. 3 AC 1974 "It Only Hurts When I Try to Smile" b/w She Can't Hold A Candle To You" No. 81 US; CB No. 56; No. 36 AC 1974 "Steppin' Out (I'm Gonna Boogie Tonight)" No. 7 US; CB No. 14; No. 4 AC 1974 "Look in My Eyes Pretty Woman" No. 11 US; CB No. 20; No. 6 AC 1975 "Gimme a Good Old Mammy Song" 1975 "He Don't Love You (Like I Love You)" b/w "Pick It Up" No. 1 US; CB No. 1; No. 1 AC 1975 "Mornin' Beautiful" b/w "Dance Rosie Dance" No. 14 US; CB No. 15; No. 2 AC 1975 "You're All I Need to Get By" b/w "I Know You Like a Book" (non-LP track) No. 34 US; CB No. 38; No. 13 AC 1975 "Skybird" b/w "That's the Way a Wallflower Grows" No. 49 US; CB No. 52; No. 7 AC 1976 "Cupid" b/w "(You're) Growing on Me" No. 22 US; CB No. 21; No. 2 AC 1976 "Midnight Love Affair" b/w "Selfish One" CB No. 93; No. 15 AC 1976 "To Be With You" b/w "(You're) Growing on Me" canceled 1977 "(You're) Growing on Me" b/w "You're All I Need to Get By" 1977 "Sing" b/w "Sweet as Candy" (non-LP track) No. 58 US; CB No. 62; No. 7 AC
