The George Baker Selection was formed in The Netherlands By Hans Bouwens, who used the name “George Baker” (which he had taken from a character in a mystery novel). With bassist Jan Visser, Bouwens wrote “Little Greenback” in 1969, changing it to “Little Green Bag” for the American market. The song reached #21 in the US in 1969. The band stayed together until 1978, having one additional song reach the charts here, “Paloma Blanca,” which reached #1 on the Adult Contemporary charts in the US and Canada in 1975. Baker re-formed the group in 1982, and they recorded several more albums before breaking up in 1989. “Little Green Bag” became popular again in 1992 when the film Reservoir Dogs used it in the opening sequence.
