Los Bravos

In 1966, this Spanish quintet became one of the very few rock groups from a non-English speaking country to have an international smash with "Black Is Black," which got to number four in the U.S. and number two in the U.K. Lead singer Mike Kogel's overwrought, pinched vocals sounded so much like Gene Pitney that many listeners assumed that "Black Is Black" was a Pitney single, and the strong resemblance remained intact throughout Los Bravos' career, both in the singing and arrangements. Indeed, with their brassy pop/rock songs and production, which sounded about halfway between New York mid-'60s pop-soul and Jay & the Americans, Los Bravos sounded far more like a mainstream American pop/rock group than a Spanish or British one. Most of their records were sung in English, and although they never made the American Top 20 again, they were far more popular in Europe, even placing another single in the British Top 20 in late 1966 with "I Don't Care." ~ Richie Unterberger

rewrite: (1) this is the first heartbreak song I related to at the age of 10 going on 11. (2) does anyone else sense the similarity in Tom Jones vocals in any of this song? I'll bet TJ liked this song, and probably Gene Pitney as well.

Maybe a 1-1/2 hit wonder? Bring a Little Lovin didn't get super high on the charts, but was a great, powerful song.

They were a Spanish rock band in the sixties.

"Black is Black"...one of my all time favorite songs from my youth. Those "Gene Pitney" sounding vocals combined with the hard driving bass line and its great "hooks"...ju s t makes me smile and invites me to sing along. What a great "one hit wonder" song!

LOVE the angst growley wails. Love the plaintive high harmonies.

Never got the Pitney sound until now. WOW! It really is Pitney-esque from the vocals to the production. It brings to mind the sound of Bobby Vee after (sigh with a heavy heart) Buddy Holly's all too early departure. Which is rather ironic in that the sound of Richie Valens, who lost his life in the same plane crash near Clear Lake, was recreated years later giving fame in the U.S. to another "Los" - Los Lobos. I'd better stop now before Kevin Bacon works into these so many degrees....

The singer is German, as for 'non-spanish sound'

They always sounded like Gene Pitney to me. It's hard to believe that they were a Spanish group! "Black is Black" is a great sound!
