The Real Thing

By 2nd October 2017

The Real Thing are a British soul group formed in the 1970s. In addition to a string of British hits, the band charted internationally with their song “You to Me Are Everything”, which reached No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart, No. 28 on Billboard’s R&B Singles chart and No. 64 on the Billboard Hot 100. By number of sales, they were the most successful black rock/soul act in England during the 1970s. The journalist, author and founder of Mojo, Paul Du Noyer credits them alongside Deaf School with restoring “Liverpool’s musical reputation in the 1970s” with their success.

Following the sad passing of Eddy Amoo his brother Chris and Dave Smith have decided to continue as a duo backed by The Real Thing band.
