My next group was active from 1976 until 1982, but they had one of the biggest hits of 1977. The Floaters were a spinoff from the Detroit Emeralds. Former members James and Paul Mitchell. The group had one major hit that was co-written by James Mitchell. That song would reach Number One on the R&B Charts and Number Two on Billboards Top 100. It would also reach Number One on the United Kingdom Singles Charts.
The group would record other singles, but they never recaptured the magic of my next song.
Let’s hear The Floaters with “Float On.”
