Song of the Day: Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds, “Don’t Pull Your Love”

Dan Hamilton (guitar), Joe Frank Carollo (bass), and Tommy Reynolds (keyboards) were members of the band Liberty Records assembled and named The T-Bones when the original T-Bones, member of LA’s famed Wrecking Crew, refused to tour in support of "No Matter What Shape (Your Stomach’s In)." Shortly after their T-Bones days, they formed the soft-rock trio Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds (or, as some disk jockeys called them, "Hamilton, Joe, Frank Reynolds and the entire Eyewitness News team"). They had a hit in 1971 with "Don’t Pull Your Love," which reached #4 on the Hot 100 and earned the band a Gold record. Reynolds left the band in 1972 and was replaced by keyboardist Alan Dennison, but the band retained the name, and had a second hit, "Fallin’ In Love," under that name in 1975, which reached #1, the only #1 record for Playboy Records.

  1. I always thought it was Hamilton, Joe, Frank and Reynolds. This reminds me of the summer I watched my cousin. I didn’t watch TV much then either and spent the summer listening to the radio and reading and organizing baseball cards with my cousin which helped me a lot when my boyfriend (turned husband) turned out to be a baseball card collector. 🙂 Ah, the good old days.
