WLS may have refused to play "Hot Rod Lincoln," but WCFL sure did ... in fact, it went all the way to #2 on the Super 'CFL Chart!
We traced the history of "Hot Rod Lincoln" many years ago in FH ...
Here's a link for those who may not have seen it ...
Austin Roberts was one of the first artists we met and got to know when I first started doing Forgotten Hits ... just a super nice guy.
I love his hit "Something's Wrong With Me" (#9, 1972), a big seller for him and second only to his #6 hit a year later, "Rocky," (which I'm not nearly as fond of! lol)
I loved the Arkade song "The Morning Of Our Lives" from 1971, too ... it got a lot of airplay here in Chicago on the soft rock stations at the time (although it never really became much of a hit, peaking at #60 in Billboard.) Austin was part of this group before his solo career took off. (He has also done some writing with Bobby Hart over the years.)
Betty Wright charted 23 times between 1968 and 1981 ... "Clean Up Woman" and her duet with Peter Brown ("Dance With Me") were by far her biggest hits.
