Between 1969 and 1975, Three Dog Night was one of the bands that ruled the singles charts and top 40 radio. They had 21 chart hits, 11 that reached the top ten, and three that topped the charts.
“Never Been To Spain” was released Christmas day of 1971 and reached number 5 on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart.
It was different from many of their hit singles. It was a song that built to a number of climax’s and the lead vocal was more gritty. A welcome addition to their pop catalogue.
