1966 The Tropics won The International
Battle of the Bands held at the famous McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.
The Band took first place over more than 1000 bands, which included
names as Chicago and Tommy James & The Shondells. Out of that came
a recording contract with Columbia Records and the single "Take
the Time," produced by Teo Macero, which made it to the top of
the charts and got a "92" on Dick Clark's American Bandstand!
On this 17 song CD The Tropics Anthology 1965 - 1969, you'll find most all of the origional recordings of the records made by the band, some on Major labels like Columbia and Malaco Records, some on local Florida labels such as Thames and Laurie Records in NewYork..
All songs on this CD are the ORIGINAL RECORDINGS of Florida's #1 Show Band 1965-1969, The Fabulous Tropics!
