1968 Edition, by Rich Paschall
Many musicians toil away at their craft hoping to break through the mass of musical acts and reach success with a hit recording. Following endless rehearsals and low paying jobs, some of the best, or most interesting, will land recording contracts. These artists wait eagerly for the day when one of their songs will be heard on the radio and climb the pop charts. In 1968 there was no shortage of new acts to reach the Top 100.
Success may mean interviews and television appearances. In an era with many television variety shows and, of course, American Bandstand, a chance to show off in front of millions could be at hand. After finally having made it, performers looked for the next hit. For many it would not be. They would go down in music history as “one hit wonders.”
