In The 1970s Hello


Hello
This song was originally a hit in 1960 under the title "Tell Her", and a bigger hit in the UK for Billie Davis as "Tell Him" in 1963. The group Hello were a boy group from London, and had already tried to get  TV fame by appearing on the teen show "Lift Off" with the beautiful Aneysha who went on to star in the Gerry Anderson series UFO. I bet you did not know that?

The teen group started off in 1969 and were called The Age.  Tell Him on Bell records was their very first single chart success getting as high as No. 6 in 1974. I actually still have this single!
They later had a minor hit with their version of Bend Me Shape Me, but it was in 1975 they had their next and last big chart hit. It was a good one too. New York Groove was written by Russ Ballard from Argent and gave the group a top ten single hit in the UK and Germany, from the album Keep Us Off The Streets. The single did chart in the U.S. But it was in 1978 and sang by Ace Frehly who also performed with Kiss.
