Tavares – Greatest Hits Live
• A collection of tracks from sensational soul group of five brothers, Tavares
• Hits include Heaven Must Be Missing an Angel, More Than a Woman, Don’t Take Away The Music and Whodunit
The five-brother singing group Tavares may be best known for such up-tempo hits as the million-selling single “Heaven Must Be Missing an Angel,” “More Than a Woman,” and “Whodunit,” but they first came to national attention with the luscious ballad “Check It Out.” Their crisp vocalizing and clean-cut, young-men-next-door image made them favourites on TV shows starring Johnny Carson, Mike Douglas, and Dick Clark’s American Bandstand. In 1974, Tavares also had the first hit version (number one R&B) of “She’s Gone” written by the then relatively unknown duo of Daryl Hall and John Oates. Hall & Oates scored a number seven pop hit with the song in 1976.
The Tavares brothers — Arthur, Ralph Vierra, Perry Lee, Tavares and Feliciano, nicknamed “Pooch,” “Tiny,” “Chubby,” and “Butch” — started the group in 1964. Many of their hits underplayed their R&B background and gave the group the image of being a disco act. This perception was reinforced by their appearance on the soundtrack to the film Saturday Night Fever in 1977. Tavares recorded the Bee Gees song “More Than a Woman”, and their version reached the Pop Top 40 that year. The soundtrack became one of the most successful in history, giving Tavares their only Grammy.
The group continues to tour all over the world and will be performing in the UK with the Four Tops and the Temptations in November 2018.
