Peaches and Herb

Story

Peaches and Herb 's first single, "Were in This Thing Together" enjoyed modest success. Months later, St. Louis Disc Jockey, Robert B.Q. picked up on the B side, "Let's Fall in Love".  The song became a huge hit, and was the first of a string of extrodinarily successful hits.  

A series of 45 releases followed the DATE label which included "Close Your Eyes", "For Your Love" and the smash hit song "Love is Strange" which established Peaches & Herb as international stars. The duet continued touring and recoding through the late 60's and in 1970 Herb went into law enforcement.

In 1978, after an 8 year hiatus, Herb this time with a new Peaches, was at it again with Polydor/M.V.P. Records.  Producer Freddie Perren took the group in the studio, and the result was the monster hit that became #4 in the World Wide: 

#4 "Shake Your Grove Thing" (1979)

#1  "Reunited" (1980)

Their album "Twice the Fire" went Gold and "Too Hot" went triple Platinum.

Peaches & Herb continued to be America's Sweethearts of Soul, still performing today.
