Today's piece of Lost Jewelry from the Vaults at Oldiez 93 for Friday, January 19th, 2018 comes from The George Baker Selection!
On April 11th, 1970, "Little Green Bag" entered Billboard's Top 40 and crawled up to #21, not a great showing, but it had major staying power, sepnding ten weeks in the chart, longer than many songs that went to #1.
George Baker was born Johannes Bouwens on December 8th, 1944 in the Netherlands. The Selection was made up of Jan Hop, Jacobus Greuter, George The and Jan Visser. Lydia Bont joined in 1975.
The George Baker Selection placed two songs in the Top 40, thus narrowly avoiding the stigma of being a One-Hit-Wonder.
