Kind Of A Drag By The Buckinghams

The Buckinghams were a band from the north side of Chicago. Signed to the city-based label USA, they reached number one for two weeks, beginning February 18, 1967. It was a bright piece of rock and roll history driven by the horn section.

The large Columbia label quickly signed the band and they had five more hits. “Don’t You Care,” “Mercy Mercy Mercy,” “Susan,” “Hey Baby (They’re Playing Our Song)” and “Back In Love Again.” Two years later the Buckinghams were no more.

Left behind was their Columbia producer Williams Guercio who learned his lessons well and went on to produce Blood, Sweat & Tears and Chicago.
