"Start It All Over" by McGuffey Lane

Song#:  0900
Date:  02/06/1982
Debut:  99
Peak:  97
Weeks:  3
Genre:  Country Crossover

Pop Bits:  The country-rock group's second album, "Aqua Dream," spawned this first single that was barely a blip at the bottom of the chart. It would be their last to hit the pop chart. However, they refined their sound by moving closer to country than pop and had four mid-charting singles hit the country chart. The real heyday of the group ended around 1985 when they were dropped by their label. A form of the group continued and later released a few albums and continued to perform.

ReduxReview:  I wasn't that fond of their first chart single, "Long Time Lovin' You," and this one doesn't make me a fan either. But I think the song itself is better and showed that the group had something going. It's still a bit of a snoozer, but an improvement from their debut.

ReduxRating:  5/10

Trivia:  This popular Columbus, Ohio, group was considered the house band at a local joint called Zachariah's Red Eye Saloon. Years after its closing, they spearheaded a reunion show of acts that used to perform at the venue. The reunion show turned into a popular annual event that continues to draw a large audience.
