Hodges, James & Smith

In 1973 they signed a recording contract with 20th Century Fox Records. Their first album, "Incredible" ...was not! The only thing incredible about it was the speed it reached cut-out bins at discount record stores.... Another 20th Century album "Power In Your Love," disappeared so fast that most people can't recall its release.

I suspect part of the reason for their lack of success was a constant series of chest colds from being undressed in the studio all the time.


Their story here.

Speaking of possible Olympic events, how about one where the Big Band leader has to race around like a nut and take a turn at every instrument in the band?
