American Top 40 Flashback - "Brother Louie"

Since I'm on a total "Louie" kick these days, it makes sense to honor the show in a sort of a backhand way by featuring this #1 song by Stories, which more or less dominated the airwaves on AM Radio during the summer of 1973.

Now, to be fair, the version of the song played on his show is the Ian Lloyd version, but since it sounds exactly the same as this one, I'm not sure it makes a huge difference. And of course the song was written by Errol Brown and originally recorded by Brown's band Hot Chocolate, which finally had their American smash a couple of years later with "You Sexy Thing."

"Brother Louie," Stories, the #1 song this week in 1973.

I definitely remember the summer of '73 and this song! I lived them both, my friend. Thanks for the memory, Jeff.
