Legendary music icons Three Dog Night celebrate their fourth decade of musical success. From 1969 through 1974, no other group had more top 10 hits, sold more records or filled more concert halls than Three Dog Night. With hits like "Mama Told Me (Not To Come)," "Joy to the World," "Black and White," "Shambala" and "One," there are few people who haven't been affected by the group's sound. From 1967 to 1972, The Grass Roots set a record for being on the Billboard charts 307 straight weeks. They are one of only nine bands that have charted twenty nine or more Top 100 Billboard singles. They have sold over twenty million records worldwide. Learn More

I loved it! My husband was laughing at me because he didn't realize how much of a diehard Kansas fan I was in my teens and still remembered all the lyrics for most of their songs. We had a fantastic time....

About Blue Oyster Cult:
Eric Bloom: lead vocal, Buck Dharma: guitar, Richie Costellano: Bass, Jules Radino: Drums Rudy Sarzo-Bass The missing link between the Velvet Underground, KISS and the nascent punk-rock movement of the late '70's, Blue Oyster Cult evolved out of the Stalk-Forrest Group which first came together as the psychedelic Soft White Underbelly on the campus of Stony Brook University on Long Island, NY. Supposedly, the band's producer Sandy Pearlman got the idea for the name while reading a recipe for Blue Point oysters. The band's noirish imagery was symbolized by their logo, the ancient symbol of Cronos, the Titan god who swallowed his son, the Grim Reaper. This ain't the summer of love," snarled Blue Oyster Cult singer Eric Bloom, resplendent in studs and black leather, back in 1976 on the band's platinum-plus best seller, Agents of Fortune, and the sentiment is perhaps even more revealing today.
From the beginning, Kansas achieved success by playing only their original music. This "garage band" from Topeka released their first album in 1974.
The band has produced eight gold albums, three sextuple-Platinum albums (Leftoverture, Point of Know Return, Best of), one platinum live album (Two for the Show) and a million-selling gold single, "Dust in the Wind." Kansas appeared on the Billboard charts for over 200 weeks throughout the '70s and '80s and played to sold-out arenas and stadiums throughout North America, Europe and Japan. In fact, "Carry On Wayward Son" was the #2 most played track on classic rock radio in 1995 and went to #1 in 1997. In 1998, Kansas released an orchestral CD, Always Never the Same, recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios in London. They followed with an orchestral tour accompanied by top-caliber symphony orchestras.
