A SOULFUL CONVERSATION.
Forty-five years ago, Harry Elston, Jessica Cleaves, Barbara Love and the late Floyd Butler formed one of pop/soul’s enduring vocal groups of the era - the Friends of Distinction. From the get-go, they scored a hit with their classic version of “Grazing In The Grass” (a #1 pop/soul instrumental for Hugh Masekela). Other smashes followed - “Going In Circles”, “Love Or Let Me Be Lonely”, “Time Waits For No One” - as well as great album cuts such as “I Really Hope You Do” (Grazin’) and “Lady Mae” (Real Friends). Actor Will Ferrell included the Friends’ “Grazing In The Grass” in the 2004 hit movie, “Anchorman - The Legend Of Ron Burgundy” and the tune makes another appearance in the trailer for the upcoming “Anchorman 2”. Harry joined us for this SOULFUL CONVERSATION about the group’s career and successes.
