MEL AND TIM were cousins and were signed to Mel’s mother’s label, Bamboo Records (managed by Gene Chandler), when they hit with “Backfield In Motion” in 1969. The disc went to No.3 R&B and No.10 Pop on the Billboard charts selling over one million copies. prolific solo career. “A Lot Of Love” featured on his second album The Natch’l Blues and first appeared on the rare soul scene at The Twisted Wheel.
