    I was setting on the beach in a tiki bar in Marco Island Fla.When Easy Loving came on the radio in 1971. The bartender said good song but won’t be a big hit. I said I have 50$ not only will that song be a big hit it will be a number one song.The people at the bar said put your money up no guts no glory.well we all thank him for the drinks cause the next day on the radio we heard now the number one song on the charts, is Freddie Hart EASY lOVING. the always taste better when thet are free we all thank him for the drinks. back then drinks were mix 65 cents beer was 50 cents on draft and 1$ for a picther of beer. Thank him for being a good sport.

    Razzy Bailey had a bunch of #1 records but none of them sold as well as expected well or helped generate the appropriate level of album sales so RCA dropped him – I’m not sure why they didn’t sell well but they didn’t – they were strictly airplay hits
