From 1973, please enjoy the Sutherland Brothers and Quiver and their unjustly forgotten hit single "(I Don't Want to Love You But) You Got Me Anyway".
These guys were Brits, of course, but at the time everybody pretty much assumed they were Americans. Because the song, fine as it is, has a distinctly California vibe, although I can't think of a California band of the period that made a record even remotely as good. In any case, let's just say I wasn't surprised when SB&Q bassist Bruce Thomas turned up as one of Elvis Costello's original Attractions.
In the meantime, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded to the first reader who gleans the song's relevance to the theme of tomorrow's Weekend Listomania. And no, it isn't great lost singles of the 70s.
