Thursday 9pm: Feature Artist – Three Dog Night

Three Dog NightThree Dog Night is an American rock band. They formed in 1967 with a line-up consisting of vocalists Danny Hutton, Cory Wells, and Chuck Negron. This lineup was soon augmented by Jimmy Greenspoon (keyboards), Joe Schermie (bass), Michael Allsup (guitar), and Floyd Sneed (drums). The band registered 21 Billboard Top 40 hits (with three hitting number one) between 1969 and 1975. It helped introduce mainstream audiences to the work of many songwriters, including Paul Williams (“An Old Fashioned Love Song”), Hoyt Axton (“Joy to the World”), Laura Nyro (“Eli’s Comin'”), Harry Nilsson (“One”), Randy Newman (“Mama Told Me Not to Come”), and Leo Sayer (“The Show Must Go On”).

Three Dog Night’s original recordings were released by ABC Dunhill Records (except for 1983’s It’s A Jungle). In 1973, executives at ABC Dunhill (Jay Lasker is usually blamed) decided to discard all of their multi-track recordings and mono masters to save storage space in a cost-cutting measure. As a result, all re-issues on CD have been remastered using album masters (sometimes second or third generation tape) which often results in an inferior sound when compared to other catalogs of the era. – Wikipedia
