Dubbed “the American Rolling Stones”, the Shadows of Knight shot to the top of the music charts in 1966 with the rock anthem“GLORIA”.
Over 8 million copies later, those three famous chords and that unashamed mating chant has found immortality among fraternities, presidents, wanna-be’s, rock stars and the rest of the nubile world.“GLORIA” has become the party song of generations and the Shadows of Knight have become the legendary messengers.
Chicago’s “golden boys of pop” released four subsequent hits, “I Got My Mojo Workin”, “Bad Little Woman”, “I’m Gonna Make You Mine”, and the much lauded version of the Muddy Waters tune, “Oh Yeah”. In late 1968, the band left Dunwich Records (Atlantic) to sign with Team Records (Buddah) and the ” bubble gum” empire of Jerry Kasentz and Jeff Katz. They recorded anonymously on tracks such as “Quick Joey Small”, “Yummy, Yummy, Yummy (I’ve Got Love In My Tummy)”, “Chewy, Chewy” and many more hit records. The Shadows of Knight then released their final chart hit, “Shake !” culminating in another million seller.
In 2001, VH-1 Music Television voted The Shadows of Knight hit “GLORIA” #81 Best Rock Song of Rock’n’Roll.
Their 2006 release is “A Knight To Remember”. They also headlined the Rolling Rock & Roll show for Little Steven’s Underground Garage in October 2006. The final night of The Underground Garage Tour, The Shadows shared the stage with Cheap Trick, Little Steven, The Romantics, and The Charms for an all-star version of “Gloria!”
Today, brings original vocalists, Jimy Sohns and veteran bassist, Lee Brovitz, full circle. Sundazed Records has re-released the “Gloria” and “Back Door Men” albums to critical acclaim.
