Let's Put Our Love Back Together - Denne and Gold
Time to go deep into the AOR Disco vaults with this lost track from 1977. Mickey Denne and Ken Gold were the writers behind The Real Thing's huge 1976 hit You To Me Are Everything and this (combined with their work with big leaguers like Elton John) must have made them feel confident about scoring a hit of their own when they stepped into the limelight and released an album under their own names. However, it was met with the rustle of tumbleweed and little else, even though this single with its Philly meets Westcoast sound is better than many similar but successful releases from this era.
It all went quiet on the song-writing front too for Denne and Gold for many years but they did eventually return to the charts in 1999 when their song Heartache No 9 (originally performed by Delegation) was sampled by Phats and Smalls.
