FRIENDS - Friends (MGM, 1973)

"(Won't You) Reach Out"

Even though Friends is a new group and this is their very first  MGM record, the individual members are no strangers to music. Michael Lloyd, Darryl Cotton and Steve Kipner have been responsible for the sale of several million records. 

Michael Lloyd, as a record producer, has had fifteen singles and twelve albums on the music charts during the past two years, including twelve gold records and a Grammy Award. Some of the artists he's produced include The New Seekers, The Osmonds, Kenny Rogers, Coven, Anthony Newley and Lou Rawls. He sings; he plays piano, organ, guitar, bass and drums.

Darryl Cotton was the lead singer of Zoot, which was voted Australia's 
top group several years in a row. During Zoot's reigning years they had eight top ten records and monopolized the music charts in Australia. 

Steve Kipner's first record went all the way to No.1 in Australia and was followed by four more hits. Steve then moved to London and formed Tin Tin, a group produced by the Bee Gees. Tin Tin had two international hit singles which Steve co-wrote entitled "Toast And Marmalade For Tea" and "Is That The Way". Notas da contraportada
