Little Anthony On Songbird

Hi all

Picked up a copy of this just recently and can't remember seeing one for a long time ?

LITTLE ANTHONY - LOVE'S THE ONLY WAY TO SURVIVE ( MCA SONGBIRD)

Now i know it was on one of his lp's and i knew it from a soundfile i have had for a long time,but it seems there is no discography for the 45 release ?

Its not listed on popsike and there's a lot of pages dedicated to the artist on there !

Date on the label is 1980

A very catchy modern piece that is quite infectious :yes:

Always amazing to hear records sung by artists whove spanned so many generations ,that also move with the times .

Anybody know anything about it please ...has it been a popular tune anywhere ???

Has anyone seen copies of it etc etc ??

Thanks in advance :thumbsup:

Used to have it on 45 until I got myself a copy of the album. Don't know if it had plays "on the scene" but it was on an old Kent compilation so it might had some at one time.

Thanks guys for the info so far , but why no copies in sales ?

Always wonder why they put on a 45 that it's off a particular album ?

Was the album a big success , and this a popular track that merited a 45 release ?

Robin Salter certainly had it in the early 80's Can only assume he played it too :)
