Hudson Brothers - Hollywood Situation

As promised, their 3rd LP "Hollywood Situation" from Casablanca Records in 1974. Having established some success on television, the band works in songs culled from their variety show as well as a pointless Chucky Margolis skit. The material is mostly strong, though there appears to be a lack of focus here. Nonetheless, fans should eat this one up. Enjoy!

You're right about the 'Chucky Margolis' skit; it's not even one of the funnier ones (they could break-up as easily as Tim Conway & Harvey Korman from the Carol Burnette show)Still, they wrote great songs and it's a shame it's all but forgotten.

I took what I found from your blog and elsewhere and created this 80 minute CD-R compilation of my Hudson Brothers favorites. I cleaned up some things tastefully (De-Clicking, etc.) where possible. This is a torrent:

Thanks for helping turn me on to their music!
