"Smoke From A Distant Fire" by Sanford-Townsend Band.

OK, more one-hit wonders: These two blue-eyed soul keyboardists from Alabama reunited in L.A. in the 70's as a songwriting team. Their credits include, among others, "I Keep Forgettin' " for Michael McDonald. Their hit came in '77, topping the Cashbox charts and peaking at #9 on Billboard. Recorded at the noted Muscle Shoals Sound Studios in Alabama. They opened for Fleetwood Mac during their Rumours Tour to promote their record. Kenny Loggins sings background vocals.

Yesterday's answer: "Silhouettes" by the Rays. The doo-wop group The Silhouettes, as in "Get A Job", took their name from this song.
