In 1967, the 1910 Fruitgum Company® was signed to a recording contract with Buddah Records. Their first release in 1968, Simon Says, became a top of the chart hit in the US and ranked number two in the United Kingdom, staying on the charts for over 10 weeks.
The group followed up with 1-2-3 Red Light which hit the charts and got to number three on the US National charts. Following was Indian Giver in March of 1969 which reached number eight on the charts and was copied by Joan Jett and the Ramones.
All three records sold millions and credited the 1910 Fruitgum Company with three gold records. The group had a total of eight charted hits and numerous albums throughout the world.
