I grew up in Texas and used to go dancing whenever BJ Thomas & the Triumphs were in the area.

He's right; Tom Jobim is one of the best song writers of all time.

And Thomas's 'Hooked on a Feeling' is one of the best pop songs of all time!

Please ask Mr. Thomas about his days with the Scepter label, which had its offices on West 54th Street and had a diverse (to say the least) line-up of fine singers and musicians including Tammi Terrell, Dionne Warwick, Roy Head & The Traits, and The Esquires.
