Man what a band those guys had. My wife was at the dollar store & found a vhs of them in concert back in the early '70's. The only songs I knew were "Sara Smile" & "Rich Girl" so I thought I would watch it to see if the other songs were any count. To my surprise their band reminds me of old Billy Joel or the E Street band. They were a far cry from the bubble gum band they became in the '80's!

They were a very popular band that recorded a lot of songs that were great to sing along too.

Nothing wrong with that, they have their place in history as one of the best selling duos ever.

I would like to say I've really no familiarity w/ '70s Hall & Oates. Came upon them early 80s Big Bam Boom album. "Out of Touch" was a great song, and "Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid" is just a personal fave, if only because it allows for a little interplay (they musta been aware a song running 5:30 wasn't gonna hit AOR anytime soon...)

Left them behind until '90 When 'Change of Season' dropped. "Don't Hold Back Your Love" was a schmaltzy but effective ballad.

Last I knew, they were still at it. An album in '97, I think? Indie release?

The funny (maybe sad) thing is that Daryl shops @ the same supermarket I do....& I usually don't even realize it was him until someone says something to me ("Know who that was?" "Nope." "DUDE! Only the best White soul man ever!!")

I sneaked into one of their shows when I was at college in Shippensburg Pa. I had always liked there Abandoned Luncheonette album. I was pleasantly surprised how much more of a rock'n concert it was then expected

If anyone can ever find the ounce of talent that John Oates must be hidng somewhere that allowed Darryl to carry him all those years, I'd be curious to know where it is.

They have had a few stages in their career. My favorite is their "folk rock" phase when they were on Atlantic Records from 1972 to 1974.

WHOLE OATS
ABANDONED LUNCHEONETTE
WAR BABIES
NO GOODBYES


Then they switched to RCA Records and entered their "Glam, pop and disco" phase. This is sort of their lost era, but they did have some big hits and great tunes. 1975 to 1979

DARYL HALL AND JOHN OATES
BIGGER THAN BOTH OF US
BEAUTY ON A BACK STREET
ALONG THE RED LEDGE
LIVE TIME
X-STATIC

Then their popular 80s Top 40 Phase. Most of their popular radio hits and chart success 1980-84:

VOICES
PRIVATE EYES
H2O
BIG BAM BOOM

Before they hit the commercial airwaves really good. After, still really good.
