I did not like most of these 1975 records at the time as I was too busy discovering all these great 1950s records. But they sound good now. I hope some of you are taking advantage of this countdown.

New Jersey's own Moments are on right now. The #12 song of the year, a pretty ballad called "Look At Me (I'm In Love)."

Soon after this they became known as Ray, Goodman and Brown.
