Re: one HIT wonders

Indian Reservation by Paul Revere and the Raiders. Last seen doing the county fair circuit.
Why would this be a one hit wonder. They had tons of hits. Actually "Indian Res" was listed under just "The Raiders"

Paul Revere and the Raiders recorded on and off for four decades, and with various names and member lineups they released roughly 30 albums and 50 singles of which only one was a Number One Hit. And that song was... Indian Reservation.

Ah-thankyou.

(Sorry, I thought we were just having fun with this thread, didn't know we needed to quote Billboard statistics)

Weren't they just a cover band?
