Three Dog Night

Three Dog Night scored a succession of 21 hit singles, including eleven Top Tens, and twelve consecutive gold albums from 1969 to 1975, thanks to the slick, sometimes soulful vocal harmonies of singers Danny Hutton, Chuck Negron, and Cory Wells and an excellent ear for quality material. While often criticized as commercial, the band was noted for its creative arrangements and interpretations, and their cover choices gave exposure (and royalties) to several talented songwriters: Nilsson ("One"), Laura Nyro ("Eli's Coming"), Randy Newman ("Mama Told Me (Not to Come)"), Hoyt Axton ("Joy to the World"), Argent's Russ Ballard ("Liar"), and Leo Sayer ("The Show Must Go On"). Wells and Hutton met in the '60s while the former was the lead singer of the Enemies and the latter, a writer/producer for Hanna Barbera Records who had recorded several singles, served as producer. In 1967, Hutton conceived the idea of a three-vocalist group, and he and Wells enlisted mutual friend Negron. They took their name from an Australian expression describing low nocturnal temperatures in the outback (the colder the night, the more dogs needed to keep warm while sleeping). The three cut a few unsuccessful singles and decided to expand their range by hiring backing musicians, who included guitarist Mike Allsup, keyboardist Jimmy Greenspoon, bassist Joe Schermie, and drummer Floyd Sneed. "One" became the band's first Top Ten hit in 1969, while "Mama Told Me (Not to Come)" hit number one a year later. "Joy to the World" became the group's biggest hit in 1971, spending six weeks on top of the pop charts, and their streak continued with their final number one, 1972's "Black and White" (a U.K. reggae hit for Greyhound), and their final Top Ten, 1974's "The Show Must Go On." By 1976, internal dissent arose in the group and Three Dog Night officially disbanded a year later. There was a reunion in the early '80s, and Hutton and Wells have since taken Three Dog Night out on the international touring circuit. In 2002 With The London Symphony was released and then, in 2004, to celebrate their 35th anniversary, The 35th Anniversary Hits Collection was released. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

Louisa! You are DEAD WRONG! Chuck Negron IS the LEAD SINGER on most of the songs, You need to do your history!
Wish all 3 would get back together again.
Still love this song!!
Cory Wells is the Lead singer on must of the Albums so I doubt seriously that he was hanging on anyone's boot strap
I've seen them 3 times. All within the last 4 years. Amazing.
Love the reference to Licorice Pizza Long time ago in a galaxy far, far away
How can people be so heartless...
Can't get better than this!
This music is timeless... the arrangements are outstanding. . . they're amazing!!! Thank you abc dunhill
We wore the record out on the jukebox back in high school to this song.
I am 52 years old and a new fan of Three Dog Night. I am really getting into their work and I did not realize how good they were. I was a child of the late 70's so I was not diggin the scene of the late 60's- early 70's. Fast forward 2014.....I FREEKEN LOVE Three Dog Night's music and am aware of how talented they all really were.
just heard another one that's as good....Chic a g o - Pete Cetera Robert Lamm and when Terry Kath was still with us...
Crosby stills and nash
lars1383
Fleetwood Mac?
Quick, name another rock band in history with 3 better lead singers.... Eagles maybe...no, cant think of one.
Saw them in the eighties for three bucks and a Pepsi can. They were great. Signed autographs et al...
Man; they have been around for a while and still good. Saw them in concert, Miami Beach FL, 1969 and we loved to listen and sing along to Mama told me not to Come Da Nang 1972
Without Chuck, there is NO 3DN
Chuck Negron was 3DN. Danny and Cory were just hanging on to his boot straps
Three dog night is the best group in the world. I loved them ever since I first heard them on the radio. I love all of their songs. I'm only 19 years old but I live for thee dog nights music and I love their band members as well. Saw them in concert for the first time this year and they were phenomenal. Three dog night is my life. No one stands before them when it comes to the best music ever. Love them forever. Go thee dog night.
Just saw them for the first time in Sep 2013 in Reno.....Out s t a n d i n g show. Still great, voices well preserved.

Saw 3DN when I was only 8 or 9 at a promo for a place called "Licorice Pizza" in Long Beach, Ca. A lot of promo stints took place in L.B. First in the 60's

Pieces Of April , one of the best songs ever !

cmyers3402
Love 3DN - great arrangements , often better than the original, eg Liar, One.
vkidwell
3DN should be in the R&R Hall of Fame.

Pandora needs to stop airing political ads -- cant we just listen to some tunes?!
ronstanko
One of the best groups from the U.S. ever !!!
jalepard
Never been to Spain is an AWESOME song
I feel younger just listening to TDN. Good times!
strags11

All my teen years, '68/'69 7th grade to '73/'74 Sr year!
mikej10068
Takes me WAY back!
love this group 1 of my top 5 favorites and never been to spain
one of my all time favorites
Three Dog Night is playing in Cleveland, Ohio this month.
Again I'm just a kid on the south side listing to this awesome music and I have yet to smoke pot. But it's coming!
Don't they get royalties on their music? That would keep him from living under a bridge for God's sake! That's sad. Outstanding group in the day....
Once they played at Nixon's inauguration their career was over.Funny no mention of the lead singer living on the street.

These guys should be in the R&R hall of fame. What's the criteria? I love the Sex Pistols and won't argue their induction but TDN was just as important given the number of hits they had. True, they did not write most of them but had you given me the same songs nobody would have heard them.
Awesome song.
Except for Chicago, Three Dog Night might be the most underrated band in RR history. The versitility of their songs and lyrics is tremendous. Both these groups have been shunned by the R and R H of F. That's a disgrace.
My child loves it
milosdad
I wasn't even a teen when I got into these guys. Love the music and really happy I got to see them in 1974.
sverdugo52
Oh what a song! Gosh, what emotion it evokes!
I love these guys, love the memories they bring me. My youth my good times my music.
