With a two minute recording "KIND OF A DRAG," five teenagers from Chicago's west side, found themselves propelled into the national spotlight. Neighborhood kids drawn together by music, they had landed a showcase on WGN TV's All Time Hits, and succeeded in recording their first original song on USA Records. In February of 1967, the single swiftly climbed to the #1 spot on the national music charts.
Signing with Columbia Records, THE BUCKINGHAMS had numerous hit singles:
"KIND OF A DRAG"
"DON'T YOU CARE"
"MERCY, MERCY, MERCY"
