Classic Country Connection: Seals And Crofts

The 1970′s in Pop and Easy Listening music circles could be called the decade of Seals and Crofts.

Beginning in 1972 with ‘Summer Breeze’ and continuing with hit’s like ‘Get Closer’, ‘Hummingbird’ and ‘Diamond Girl’, the duo of Jim Seals and Dash Crofts were consistently in the Top 10 of Pop music charts.

Also in the 1970′s another duo was making some serious chart noise in Pop and Easy Listening circles.  England Dan and John Ford Coley sold millions of records with hit songs like ‘Nights Are Forever Without You’, ‘Love Is The Answer’ and ‘I’d Really Love To See You Tonight’.

It’s interesting (in a ‘trivia’ sort of way) that two of these guys were brothers, England Dan and the ‘Seals’ half of Seals and Crofts.

But what’s the Classic Country connection?

Well, England Dan wasn’t really ‘England’ at all.  He was from Texas and, well, being the brother of Jim Seals, let’s put the Dan with the seals, and you have a country artist that from 1985 through 1990 had a total of eleven #1 Country hits!

Yep, the brother of the Seals half of ‘Seals and Crofts’…the ‘England Dan’ of ‘England Dan and John Ford Coley was Dan Seals, one of the great Country Artist’s of the 1980′s and 1990′s.
