Just as our book review yesterday was apropos of nothing, it's the same with this song featured tonight. I saw it on youtube and realized I hadn't heard the great 1970s hit in years.
The band was called The Babys (yeah, spelled that way), and it was not one that I would have ever kept up with or known the names of the members and what they played. However, the name John Waite stuck out as one I remember. Not to be confused with the musician Tom Wait, John Waite had a 1984 song Missing You that was also a hit.
The Babys were a 1970s (basically) British band. Isn't it Time came out in 1977, and their other hit, Every Time I Think of You came out a year later.
Oh yeah, before you watch, please be aware that many male musicians dressed and looked like this in the 1970s. In this video John Waite looks just like like David Bowie did for a while. It's not like today, where they go to the doctor, and they want to be referred to with certain pronouns. Those musicians in the 1970s did not STAY THAT WAY!
John Waite - lead vocals, bass guitar
Michael Corby - keyboards, rhythm guitar
Wally Stocker - lead guitar
Tony Brock - drums
The backing vocalists, Lisa Freeman-Roberts, Myrna Matthews and Pat Henderson, are a big part of this song.
