    Fellows, may I present to you an early 70's power-pop album that's probably the most Beatlesesque album I've ever heard in my entire life! No, I'm not kidding. These three manage to emulate the Beatles' sound so precisely that John Lennon actually became a huge fan of them.

    Sometime in the 1960's, the then-teenage Hudsons landed themselves a contract for Scepter under the New Yorkers moniker (so named after a certain Chrysler automobile) and had a few hits for that label. In the wake of their third single, Show Me the Way to Love, they found out their manager had embezzled thousands of dollars and responded by quitting touring. They reunited in 1968 and released a few singles on the local Jerden label....and, believe it or not, this was a time when they found themselves constantly switching between labels. Following their tenure on Jerden, they released a single for Warner Bros. and then signed to Decca, who encouraged the group to tour the East Coast in support of Love Is the World, a single which they released as Everyday Hudson and which ultimately failed to sell, making Decca pull all its financial support for the group.

    They re-badged themselves (again) as simply Hudson and signed to Lionel (a very short-lived subsidiary of MGM, home to such acts as One Man Electrical Band) in 1971. Records they released for the label included an earlier version of Straight Up and Tall, one of the tracks that would be re-recorded for this album in 1973/74. The following year, in 1972, the Hudsons three switched to Playboy and released their first studio album on that label.

    In 1973, Elton John and his long-time collaborator Bernie Taupin discovered the group in Los Angeles, and signed them to the then newly-formed Rocket label, which AFAIK would arguably be the company that the band would remain signed to for the longest time. A year later, the Hudsons began starring in their own variety television show on CBS, known as the Hudson Brothers Razzle Dazzle Show. This is what the group are probably most famous for - quite a shame their best musical material didn't get widespread recognition (more detailed info below in my description of this album). In support of the show, they released an album for Casablanca named Hollywood Situation, another very cool Beatlesesque album which I'd also recommend checking out. Of course, Casablanca were the ones who obliged to put the Chucky Margolis sketch from their TV show in the tracklisting, kind of breaking the album's flow, but it's still great otherwise.

    During their time as television stars, the Hudson Brothers would compile some of the material they had recorded for Rocket into this one album. As I already mentioned, Totally Out of Control sounds SO much like something that the Beatles would have done, that you could almost swear it was them had you ever heard one of the songs from here BEFORE you knew who actually performed it! If You Really Need Me reminisces of We Will Work It Out; Sunday Driver is like Drive My Car albeit with harsher lyrical commentary; Be a Man being akin to something from side two of Abbey Road; Isn't It Lovely and Lover Come Back to Me sounding a LOT like Badfinger songs (the latter of the two also reminiscing of ELO); and the seven-minute medley at the end of side two is almost like the Hudsons' own version of the Abbey Road medley.

    Since then, the brothers have gone on to other things. Bill Hudson married actress Goldie Hawn and majored as a television/movie actor (the couple would go on to have two children, actors Kate and Oliver Hudson); Brett became a TV producer and writer and eventually the unlikely survivor of a car crash; and Mark Hudson became closely associated with Ringo Starr and Aerosmith, the latter of whom he co-wrote Livin' on the Edge for in 1993.

    Hudson Brothers Medley
    The quality is terrible. . .but hey. . . this is about listening to my 45 and how it would be if you listening too.

  • Hudson Brothers - Rendezvous


    Original 45 rpm from 1975. On the label Elton John created, produced by Bernie Taupin (Elton's songwriting partner), co-written by the Hudson Brothers and Beach Boy Bruce Johnston (who wrote I Write The Songs), and sounds like 10 years retro (at its time). How's THAT for a record!



    I've had requests or this song and I had it on a CD so this is a new artist from the 70's that I have not done yet. I kicked it up and notch. Fun song to work on and sounded very good in the headphones and monitors.
    Jack it up!

  • Joni - HUDSON


    Joni - Recorded on the 1980 HUDSON (The Hudson Brothers) album, Damn Those Kids, vocals by Mark Hudson, was written with Joni Mitchell in mind. As seen in the video's newspaper article, Mark, 23 years old at the time, was crushing on Joni (The Dispatch News, Lexington NC 3/21/1975). While at A&M studios, Mixonline reports, Mark had seen Joni Mitchell flirting with Graham Nash.

    Sean Dauber, from the abbyrd site, shares info into the song's background telling of when producer Bernie Taupin recorded Mark singing his new song 'Joni,' but without the benefit of hearing the entire song ahead of time resulted in some session musicians to storm out of the session due to some unintentional offensive lyrics, no doubt putting a kibosh on the songs' future radio airplay.

    Been searching for this song on YouTube for years. It has not been available so I've created this video/slide show with the music. Who of us hasn't experienced deep feelings and the desperate frustration of an unrequited love/crush? If you haven''re one of the fortunate ones!

    Grande Hit de 1974

  • The Hudson Brothers-Annie


    From their final album, Damn Those Kids, released in 1980 under the name Hudson. Although their entire oeuvre is filled with Beatle-esque tracks, in many ways this one has the strongest McCartney influence. One would think that the fact that they didn't release the album using their conventional monicker, along with the title of the album, suggests an attempt to eradicate their image as a children's show-biz band, but sadly, the lingering effects of their TV show did them in.

    The photo is the cover of their The Best Of The Hudson Brothers CD, from 1995 on Varese Sarabande, along with autographs from the band members I acquired when I met them that same year.

  • So You Are a Star - The Hudson Brothers


    The Hudson Brothers were an American musical group consisting of brothers Bill, Brett, and Mark Hudson. They garnered fame as teen idols in the 1970s after making an appearance on the Sonny & Cher show, which resulted in their performing in their own variety half-hour series for CBS, The Hudson Brothers Razzle Dazzle Show, which ran from 1974 to 1975. They also released numerous hit singles during this time, including this single, So You Are a Star, which they wrote and produced. It was their biggest hit, peaking at Number 21 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1974.

    Bill Hudson was married to actors Goldie Hawn from 1976 to 1982 and Cindy Williams (Shirley from Laverne & Shirley) from 1982 to 2000. He and Goldie are the parents of Kate and Oliver Hudson.

    The Hudson Brothers' song Hollywood Situation off the classic 1974 LP of the same name. Great album from a very talented band, they don't get mentioned nearly enough nowdays. Fingers crossed their comedy show will be available on DVD at some point. Hope this song brings back good memories or introduces you to a wonderful band if you haven't heard of them until now. I think this album is available for download, if you dig this song, please buy it, you won't be disappointed :)
