Another Great Forgotten Hits Give-Away ... Courtesy of Tommy James!

It's another great Forgotten Hits Holiday Give-Away!!!  

We've got some GREAT Tommy James Christmas LP's and CD's to give away just in time for the big holiday!   

(Please specify when entering this contest your first preference ... the LP's have been signed by Tommy and the CD's are sealed ... we've got a limited amount of each version to give away ... prizes will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis with correct answers)   

Over the years, Tommy James recorded all different types of music ... dance and party music like "Hanky Panky" and "Mony Mony" ... bubblegum pop music like "I Think We're Alone Now" and "Mirage" ... psychedelia like "Crimson And Clover" and "Crystal Blue Persuasion" .. even gospel music like "Sweet Cherry Wine" and "Church Street Soul Revival".   

As such, Tommy's music crossed over on to ALL of Billboard's popular music charts of the day ... and therein lies your challenge to win a copy of this great holiday CD or album!   

Tommy James (both with The Shondells and as a solo artist) placed 32 songs on Billboard's Hot 100 Pop Singles Chart between 1966 and 1981.  TWO of those records went all the way to #1 ... name them.    

Six others made The Top Ten ... name them.   

One of these records crossed over to Billboard's R&B Singles Chart ... name it.   

A completely DIFFERENT record crossed over to Billboard's County Chart ... name it.   

And finally, five of Tommy's records charted on Billboard's Adult Contemporary Chart ... one of which went all the way to #1!!!  (And it's a record that did NOT top Billboard's Pop Singles Chart.  It IS, however the same title that crossed over to their Country Chart, where it peaked at #93.)  It became Tommy's biggest A/C hit at a point when most pop and rock and roll stations had already written Tommy off as an oldies act.  Name it.   

Send your answers in as soon as possible ... again, prizes will be awarded on a first come basis, based on ALL correct answers only.  (In the event that any product is left available after all of the correct answers have been awarded, we'll distribute these as "tie-breakers".)  Again, please specify your first choice of winning ... either a signed LP by Tommy or a sealed CD version of Tommy's Christmas album.  (We will do our best to honor your requests but supplies are limited.)   

Email your answers to:   forgottenhits@aol.com ...  

And be sure to include your name and mailing address.    

Good Luck to All!!!
