Continental Miniatures

Here is an odd one-off that actually charted in the Hot 100 at No. 90 in 1978.

The single takes two of the best songs of the British Invasion--Dusty Springfield's "Stay Awhile" and the Dave Clark Five"s "Glad All Over"--and tries to bring them into the then-current sound of the late 1970s.

The band is named after a TV show that aired in some markets in the 1960s that features Italian singers doing their hits. Well, this is this band's lone chart hit, so it kind of makes sense.
