In the heydays of good, quality love songs, I remember this tune from the albums of my Dad. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to find the vinyl long-playing record anymore. Still, it brings back memories of the (really) good ol’ days.
Captain & Tennille are American pop music recording artists who achieved chart success from 1975 to 1980. The duo consists of husband “Captain” Daryl Dragon and wife Cathryn Antoinette “Toni” Tennille. Daryl was a one-time keyboard musician for The Beach Boys who was instrumental in also bringing Toni into the band, the one and only “Beach Girl.”
Their first hit single was “Love Will Keep Us Together,” which went to number-one on the Billboard Hot 100 nine weeks after its debut in 1975, and it went on to win the Grammy Award for Record of the Year. Tennille and Dragon eventually married on November 11, 1975. They reached number-one with their first single “Do That to Me One More Time” in January 1980.
Dragon & Tennille spent most of the 1990s and 2000s in the Lake Tahoe area in Nevada, where they had lived for more than a dozen years, and where, during that time, Tennille served as Ambassador for the Arts for the state. In the mid-2000s, they temporarily took year-round residence at their second home, located in the Palm Springs area of Southern California, until 2008, when they built a house and settled down in Prescott, Arizona, where Tennille participates in the annual Prescott Jazz Summit.
