Wayne Fitch played bass and wrote music. His friend Harry also worked for T.K. Records as a writer and studio musician when he was needed. The two had completed a song and were listening to the playback when the record company owner heard it and said Gwen McCrae might sound good doing that song (she had a hit with a song called Rocking Chair recently).
Well, timing is everything because it wasn’t more that a few minutes later, Gwen’s husband George walked into the room and the label chairman said, George, why don’t you give it a try? It turned out to be one of the first hits of the disco era, and sold 11-Million copies. Oh and the two writers ended up having 5 #1 songs in the 70’s singing and playing their own songs.
