The Real Thing - You To Me Are Everything

So i bought 2 boxes of records recently of mostly 80's punk and new wave stuff with a little rock thrown in the boxes, and while digging through the boxes when i got them home i found this odd little thing. I say odd because it just seemed out of place amongst the Blondie, B52's and Knack records so i took a peep around the interwebs and found out its a highly sought after piece of early funky DJ disco vinyl that goes for a few bucks. So now i give it to you for nothing...

This Liverpool-based group had its origins in the Mersey boom. Lead singer Eddie Amoo was a former member of the Chants, whose excellent beat singles garnered considerable praise. Although they failed to chart, the Chants continued to record for various labels until the name was ultimately dropped. The Real Thing emerged in 1976 with 'You To Me Are Everything', which reached number 1 in the UK. They were also very snazzy dressers, just check the youtube clip...
