Daryl Hall will alwys be associated with one of the most commercially successful pop duos in music history, Hall & Oates. There was a time, however, when he released some music that was very different from the smooth pop/rock that they were known for.
During 1977, under the direction of Robert Fripp, he created a solo album that was very experiemental rock music. SACRED SONGS was so different that the RCA label did not release it for three years.
His second solo album, THREE HEARTS IN THE HAPPY ENDING MACHINE, was a little more pop oriented. The lead single, “Dreamtime,” became a huge hit. Released during the summer of 1986, it reached number five on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart. It was the most successful solo single of his career.
