The Buckinghams formed in 1965 at the height of the British Invasion. After winning a “Battle of the Bands” contest in Chicago, the group recorded covers of hit songs before the debut of their first national hit Kind of a Drag, which went to #1 on the national pop charts. After signing with Columbia Records, they had back-to-back hits with Lawdy Miss Clawdy and Don’t You Care, began appearing on such programs as The Ed Sullivan Show and American Bandstand, and later released a hit remake of Mercy, Mercy, Mercy, followed by Susan and Hey.
