" Grazing In The Grass" by Hugh Masekela.

OK, more one-hit wonders (MORE COWBELL!): This Philemon Hou composition was first recorded by a South African trumpeter. It hit #1 on Billboard's Hot 100 in '68 - one of very few instrumentals to do so. A '69 vocal cover by Friends Of Distinction also made the Top 10 in '69. Song? Trumpeter? More cowbell?

Yesterday's answer: "Summertime, summertime" by The Jamies. Tom and Serena Jameson were siblings. They started out singing in church choirs - easy to tell from their impeccable harmonies. Just one of those little feel-good songs that remind us that summer is (finally!) here.
