"Memories" by Tierra

Song#:  0524
Date:  03/14/1981
Debut:  90
Peak:  62
Weeks:  8
Genre:  R&B

Pop Bits:  Tierra's first chart entry, a remake of The Intruders 1967 entry "Together," got them some national attention when it peaked at #18. The second single from their "City Nights" album didn't do as well, but it was able to stay on the charts for a few weeks.

ReduxReview:  Although their singles were more R&B based, the group had Latin roots and they did show that off on album tracks. This song has a Latin rhythm feel, but keeps pretty close to pop/R&B like their first single. It's a nice tune, but sounds a bit old-fashioned to me.

ReduxRating:  5/10

Trivia:  Even though their sound leaned towards R&B, the group is credited with making inroads on the charts for other Latin artists. At the time, they received awards for Best R&B Vocal Group including from Billboard. They also performed at Carnegie Hall.
