Eind jaren 70, ruim na het vertrek van Elbersen, kreeg de groep versterking van de van oorsprong Amerikaanse zangeres Lilian Day Jackson. (geb.3 maart 1960 in Parijs). Zij is een stiefdochter van Art Blakey[1] en heeft onder andere bij Hans Dulfer gezongen. Met Jackson als leadzangeres en Driessen als zanger kreeg de groep zijn kenmerkende geluid en brak door. De single You and Me werd de bestverkochte plaat van 1980 in Nederland en bereikte daar de nummer 1-positie. Ook buiten Nederland werd deze plaat een grote hit (onder andere nummer 1 in Italië, België, IJsland, Peru en Suriname).<br /> <br /> Tussen augustus 1980 en maart 1982 scoorde Spargo nog vier top-5 hits in Nederland, maar het succes van You and Me (maart 1980) zou niet meer worden geëvenaard (zie discografie singles onderaan deze pagina). Andere nummers uit deze periode waren onder andere: Worry (1980), Back in my arms again (1980), Inside Your Heart (1980), Hey you!

The album is best known for the hit single &quot;Come On Eileen&quot;, which included the refrain that inspired the album's title. It was the band's most successful album, debuting at number two on the UK Albums Chart.[10]<br /> <br /> Shortly before recording this album, Dexys' bandleader Kevin Rowland had decided to add a violin section to the band's existing horn section, which had contributed strings (viola and cello) to the band's previous single, &quot;Liars A to E&quot;. However, after violinists Helen O'Hara and Steve Brennan joined the band, the three members of the horn section, including Dexys' co-leader and album co-composer &quot;Big&quot; Jim Paterson, decided to leave Dexys and become an independent horn band (ultimately known as The TKO Horns). Rowland convinced them to stay with the band long enough to record the album and to perform in a kick-off concert debuting the album on BBC Radio One in June 1982.<br /> <br /> All the songs on the album were rearranged to add strings, which caused Dexys to re-record the 1981 singles &quot;Plan B&quot;, &quot;Liars A to E&quot;, and &quot;Soon&quot;. During the rearrangement process, &quot;Soon&quot; was revised into the opening section of &quot;Plan B&quot;; since both songs were written by Rowland and Paterson, the merged songs are credited on the album simply as &quot;Plan B&quot;.<br /> <br /> Release<br /> The album's &quot;Come On Eileen&quot; became a number one hit in both the UK and the US. Dexys Midnight Runners is best known as a one hit wonder in the US (&quot;Come On Eileen&quot; was also the first US single release by Dexys), but in the UK, &quot;Geno&quot; had previously reached number one, and &quot;Jackie Wilson Said (I'm in Heaven When You Smile)&quot; and &quot;The Celtic Soul Brothers&quot; were also UK hits.<br /> <br /> Before &quot;Come On Eileen&quot;, Dexys' only North American single was the Northern Soul classic &quot;Seven Days Too Long&quot;, which Dexys' previous label EMI America had released only in Canada (with &quot;Geno&quot; as the B-side).[11] However, on the strength of &quot;Come On Eileen&quot;, Too-Rye-Ay reached number 14 in the US.[12] Dexys' success in US was not maintained; the best performer of the band's follow-up singles in the US was &quot;The Celtic Soul Brothers&quot;, which peaked at number 86.[12]<br /> <br /> Different releases of Too-Rye-Ay featured different versions of &quot;Come On Eileen&quot;. Certain editions of the album featured a version beginning with a solo fiddle playing the first line of the folk song &quot;Believe Me, if All Those Endearing Young Charms&quot; and ending with a simple fadeout (length: 4:12). This version of the song is the one featured on the single release. However, many other versions of the album omit this fiddle solo, beginning directly with the bassline (length 4:07).[13][14][15] Other editions of the album (including many of the &quot;re-releases&quot;) featured a version without the violin intro and including a tag of Kevin Rowland singing &quot;Young Charms&quot; at the end (length: approximately 4:32), while the digital version offered by Spotify and the 2002 US CD reissue includes both front and end &quot;Young Charms&quot; tags. (length: approximately 4:47, or 4:19 without the ending tag).[16][17][18][19] In addition, the most common release of the album features &quot;Come On Eileen&quot; as the final track, while the original US release features the tune as the opening track on Side 2.[20]<br /> <br /> The album was re-released in 1996 on CD with 8 bonus tracks. In 2000 an enhanced edition was released with the music videos for &quot;Come On Eileen&quot; and &quot;Jackie Wilson Said&quot; as bonus material. In 2002 a US edition with bonus tracks was released. Marking its 25th Anniversary, a 2007 2-CD Deluxe Edition was released, which included the entire 14-song album kickoff performance on BBC Radio 1 that had previously been released (without &quot;I'll Show You&quot;) as BBC Radio One Live in Concert.</li> </ul> <p>-, The Celtic Soul Brothers, 3:13, -, -, Let’s Make This Precious, 4:02, -, -, All in All (This One Last Wild Waltz), 4:11, -, -, Jackie Wilson Said (I’m in Heaven When You Smile), 3:04, -, -, Old, 5:45, -, -, Plan B, 5:07, -, -, I’ll Show You, 2:41, -, -, Liars A to E, 4:12, -, -, Until I Believe in My Soul, 7:06, -, -, Come On Eileen, 4:47, -, -, -, -, -, -, -, -, -, -, -, -, -, -, -, -, -, -, -, -, -</p> New Wave Ha Ha!

Single-succes was er voor Nancy (1980), en bovenal voor Fred Astaire (1981).<br /> <br /> Nadat begin 1981 Huub de Lange de groep had verlaten en was opgevolgd door Ton van der Meer, viel de groep in juni 1981 uit elkaar door het vertrek van Heili Helder en Clemens de Lange. <br /> Bieger en Van der Meer maakten vervolgens een doorstart. <br /> Met twee nieuwe bandleden - zangeres Linda Bloemhard en toetsenist Hans Nieuwint - trachtten ze de oorspronkelijke Mo te kopiëren en een vervolg te geven aan het succes.<br /> <br /> Er volgden nog twee albums (Ha Ha! The Sound of Laughing en Stop Staring), maar het grote succes bleef uit. <br /> <br /> Wel was The Mo redelijk succesvol in het zalencircuit, mede op basis van de podiumpersoonlijkheid van Bloemhard en een bescheiden hitnotering voor het nummer Cheese (1982). <br /> De single Asia haalde in 1984 nog een tipparadenotering. <br /> Na de opnamen voor Stop Staring, geproduceerd door Willem Ennes, verliet Harm Bieger de groep. <br /> <br /> De nieuwe drummer was Hans van der Meer, een broer van toetsenist Ton van der Meer. In 1985 werd Mo definitief opgeheven.<br /> <br /> Discografie<br /> Albums<br /> Mo (1980)<br /> Ha Ha!

Het nummer is een medley van bekende rock-'n-roll nummers: Lucille, Bird dog, Runaway, Bread and butter, That's allright, Rip it up en Jenny Jenny. De rest van het nummer is geschreven door zanger Arnie Treffers en multi-instrumentalist Tony Britnell. Ook hun tekst refereert aan oude nummers. Zo benoemen ze Peggy Sue, Hello Mary Lou, Buona sera, Rock around the clock, Heartbreak hotel, Rubber ball, Whole lotta shakin' goin' on en Diana.<br /> <br /> Het idee voor een medley kwam van producer Jaap Eggermont. Het leek hem een passende manier om het 5-jarig bestaan van de band te vieren. Aan de Hitkrant vertelde Treffers: &quot;We stonden in het begin wat huiverig tegenover het idee om zo’n kollage [sic] te maken. [..] Het uitzoeken van de nummers heeft erg veel tijd gevergd. Eerst hebben we oude hitlijsten doorgebladerd. Daarna mocht iedereen zijn favoriete nummer opgeven. Kwa [sic] ritme moest het passen, het moest authentiek klinken en toch nog het geluid van nu hebben.&quot; De keuze van Treffers viel op zijn favoriete groep The Everly Brothers. De medley paste goed in de heersende popmode, met eerdere medleys hoog in de hitlijsten, zoals The best disco in town van de Ritchie Family, What kind of dance is this van Veronica Unlimited en het nummer dat vóór Do you remember op nummer 1 stond, I remember Elvis Presley van Danny Mirror.<br /> <br /> Vanaf 8 oktober 1977 stond Do you remember 4 weken op nummer 1 in de Nederlandse Top 40 en in de Nationale Hitparade. Vanaf 22 oktober 1977 stond het nummer ook 4 weken op nummer 1 in de Vlaamse Ultratop 50. In andere West-Europese landen scoorde het nummer ook, bv in Duitsland, waar het de 20e plek behaalde.<br /> <br /> Do you remember kwam als openingstrack op het tweede album van Long Tall Ernie and the Shakers, Do you remember. De andere tracks waren de voorgaande singles van de band, waarmee het album gezien kan worden als verzamelalbum.<br /> <br /> Het succes van Do you remember was zo groot, dat de band besloot in 1978 een tweede medley uit te brengen als volgende single: Golden years of rock 'n' roll. Toen producer Eggermont een paar jaar later begon aan zijn project Stars on 45, had hij dus al ervaring met medleys.</li> </ul> <p>A1, Do You Remember, 0:00, -, A1a, Lucille, 0:00, -, A1b, Bird Dog, 0:00, -, A1c, Runaway, 0:00, -, A1d, Bread And Butter, 0:00, -, A1e, That's Alright, 0:00, -, A1f, Rip It Up, 0:00, -, A1g, Jenny Jenny, 0:00, -, A2, Turn Your Radio On, 0:00, -, A3, Operator Operator, 0:00, -, A4, Kiss Me Baby, 0:00, -, A5, Ballerina, 0:00, -, B1, Big Fat Mama, 0:00, -, B2, Alright Makin' Love In The Middle Of The Night, 0:00, -, B3, You Should Have Seen Me (Rock 'N Rollin'), 0:00, -, B4, Get Yourself Together, 0:00, -, B5, Rockin' Rocket, 0:00, -, B6, Get It In, 0:00, -</p> Rock Concerts For The People Of Kampuchea <img style="float:right" src=";collec=0&amp;img=Kampuchea_concerts.jpg&amp;x=1000&amp;y=120" /> <ul> <li>Artist : Various Artists</li> <li>Publication date : 1981</li> <li>Duration : 0:00</li> <li>Origin : Kringloop</li> <li>Label : Atlantic</li> <li>Compositor : Rockestra</li> <li>Producer : Chris Thomas</li> <li>Added by : 10/02/2022</li> <li>Comments : -</li> </ul> <p>01, Baba O’Riley, 5:19, The Who, 02, Sister Disco, 5:16, The Who, 03, Behind Blue Eyes, 3:36, The Who, 04, See Me, Feel Me, 5:58, The Who, 05, Wait, The, 3:28, Pretenders, 06, Precious, 3:24, Pretenders, 07, Tattooed Love Boys, 3:18, Pretenders, 08, Imposter, The, 2:10, Elvis Coatello &amp; The Attractions, 09, Crawling From the Wreckage, 3:04, Rockpile, 10, Little Sister, 3:34, Rockpile Feat.

The album was recorded during July–August 1971 at Abbey Road Studios by McCartney and his wife Linda along with session drummer Denny Seiwell, whom they had worked with on the previous album, Ram, and Denny Laine, formerly of the Moody Blues. It was released by Apple Records on 7 December, in both the UK and US, to lukewarm critical and commercial reaction.<br /> <br /> In July 1971, with a fresh set of McCartney tunes, the newly formed Wings recorded the album in slightly more than a week with the mindset that it had to be instant and raw in order to capture the freshness and vitality of a live studio recording. Five of the eight songs were recorded in one take. Paul McCartney later cited the quick recording schedule of Bob Dylan as an inspiration for this.[1] The first session was held at Abbey Road Studios on 25 July.[2] McCartney was filmed playing &quot;Bip Bop&quot; and &quot;Hey Diddle&quot;, around this time, which would later be included in the made-for-TV film, Wings Over the World.[3]<br /> <br /> The album was rehearsed at McCartney's recording studio in Scotland dubbed Rude Studio, which Paul and Linda had used to make demos of songs that would be used in the album, and recorded at Abbey Road with Tony Clark and Alan Parsons engineering. Paul can be heard saying &quot;Take it, Tony&quot; at the beginning of &quot;Mumbo&quot;. Paul handled all of the lead vocals, sharing those duties with Linda on &quot;I Am Your Singer&quot; and &quot;Some People Never Know&quot;. &quot;Tomorrow&quot; features background vocals from Denny Laine and Linda McCartney.[4]<br /> <br /> On the promotional album, &quot;The Complete Audio Guide to the Alan Parsons Project&quot;, Alan Parsons discusses how he did a rough mix of &quot;I Am Your Singer&quot;
