Starland Vocal Band - Afternoon Delight / Starland (1976) - single

Starland Vocal Band was an American pop band, known primarily for "Afternoon Delight", one of the biggest-selling singles of 1976. The group began as Fat City, a husband/wife duo of Bill Danoff and Taffy Nivert.
"Afternoon Delight" is a song featuring close harmony and sexually suggestive wordplay. The title came from the happy hour menu at Clyde's restaurant in Georgetown, Washington, D.C., where Bill Danoff was eating with fellow bandmember Margot Chapman while his then-wife Taffy Danoff was undergoing surgery for cervical cancer. Danoff enjoyed writing the song and downplayed the somewhat controversial lyrics, saying, "I didn't want to write an all-out sex song ... I just wanted to write something that was fun and hinted at sex."

Catapult - Spanish Eyes / The Highways And The By-Ways (1978) - single

Catapult was een Nederlandse muziekgroep, die haar bekendheid voornamelijk verkreeg door een aantal singles in de beginjaren 70. De band ontstond tijdens een vakantie in 1973 in Lloret de Mar, toen een aantal musici uit Leiden en Katwijk besloot samen een nieuwe band te starten. Zij speelden al in wisselende samenstellingen in Axis Purple (Leiden) en Oriental Garden (Katwijk). De basis werd gevormd door Aart Mol, Cees Bergman, Erwin van Prehn en Geertjan Hessing. Michael Eschauzier vulde aan op toetsinstrumenten.
De band kwam in de belangstelling te staan van ex-Golden Earringlid Jaap Eggermont, die hun aanraadde glamrock te gaan spelen, een muziekstroming die toen populair was met Suzi Quatro, Alvin Stardust, The Sweet en Mud. Barry Hay kwam met de naam Catapult. De glamrock-stroming zakte weg en de verkopen van singles van Catapult droogden op.
Een van de laatste singles die ze opnamen was het nummer “Spanish Eyes” in 1978.
Na een optreden op 23 december 1979 in Beervelde was het afgelopen.

Slade - We´ll Bring The House Down / Wheels Ain´t Coming Down (1981) - single

"We'll Bring The House Down" is a single from rock band Slade from their 1981 album “We'll Bring the House Down”. It was written by lead singer Noddy Holder and bassist Jim Lea. After years of touring in small venues and releasing a string of unsuccessful singles and albums, the single was the first Top Thirty hit for Slade since 1976, peaking at number ten in the UK during a chart run of nine weeks. This was largely thanks to the Reading festival the year before after Ozzy Osbourne's band had pulled out at the last minute and Slade agreed to step in instead. The band stole the show and became hot news once again. The idea for the track originally came while the band were performing in Amsterdam at the Paradiso club. An enthusiastic audience who wouldn't go home kept repeating the chant heard in this song. Lea, downstairs in the dressing room, as ever, on the hunt for the next song and realised the potential of the chant. The drums on the track were completely double tracked with Powell playing in the toilet on the second track which gave the echoey sound. Holder's lyrics reflected Slade's shift towards a heavier sound.
The song took two days to record on the 4 and 5 January that year. This was recorded at the Portland Recording Studios in London. To receive the distinctive vocal and drum sounds, the band recorded the parts in the Gentlemen's toilets at the studio. The band had to stop recording every time somebody flushed the toilet in the ladies' restroom, because the sound could be heard.
