Soft Rock For Summer Days 2018 by The Smooth Operators

C-Heads Magazine
Almost a year after the first part, The Smooth Operators present you the second part of Soft Rock For Summer Days! We have the exclusive world premiere of the new Young Gun Silver Fox single, Take It Or Leave It. Their album AM Waves is out tomorrow. Enjoy!

One of the most successful soft rock acts of the 1970s, the duo of Jim Seals and Dash Crofts met while playing with singer Dean Beard in 1958. That year, Beard was invited to join the Champs (of Tequila fame), and Seals and Crofts tagged along, remaining with the group until 1965. The two then bounced from the Mushrooms to the Dawnbreakers before deciding to strike out on their own as a duo in 1969. Seals played guitar, saxophone, and fiddle, while Crofts handled drums, mandolin, keyboards, and guitar. From 1972 to 1976, the duo had a string of five gold albums for Warner Bros., with an additional greatest-hits compilation certified double platinum. Their hit singles from this period include Summer Breeze, Diamond Girl, We May Never Pass This Way (Again), and Get Closer; all except the third mentioned reached number six on the Billboard charts.
