"Together" by Tierra

Song#:  0396
Date:  11/08/1980
Debut:  80
Peak:  18
Weeks: 21
Genre:  R&B

Pop Bits:  Tierra was basically a spin-off band from the L.A. chicano-rock/soul band El Chicano. That group placed a few songs on the pop chart including 1970's "Viva Tirado, Pt. 1" (#28). This first single from Tierra's third album "City Nights" performed a bit better and became their best pop effort. The song also reached #9 on the R&B chart.

ReduxReview:  This is an okay song. It's smooth and a nice listen, but there is nothing here that really sticks in my ear. The original version (see below) is the same way. It is a pleasant listen (except that spoken word section) and they perform it well, but it is not reeling me in. Bland R&B.

ReduxRating:  4/10

Trivia:  This song, written by the famous Gamble & Huff team, was a remake of the 1967 chart song by The Intruders. Their version peaked at #48 pop and #9 R&B (same as the Tierra version).
