Cheers Pete -

in honest: it was nothing more than an educated guess. I knew that several BBs individually sang backing vocals on Californian AOR hits.

Here's my entry: what do the following albums have in common?

Ry Cooder: Ry Cooder

Allen Toussaint: Southern Nights

Prince & The Revolution: Purple Rain

Deep Purple: Stormbringer

The Electric Prunes: Underground

Van Morrison: Astral Weeks

?

Sorry, Mike Love is an incorrect answer.

I'm ready this time.

1966 -Singer/Songwriter A (far better known as a singer than as a writer) has a huge hit with a song written by Singer/Songwriter B.

1969 - Singer/Songwriter B (a far more successful writer than singer) has his only US chart record as an artist with a song written by Singer/Songwriter A.

Name the singer/songwriters and the tunes.

Correct!

(an afterthought, Thrasher also did more obscure releases, but well- you were fast and right on the money!)

I can understand that, Pete. Brian, Mike, and Carl actually did numerous backing vocs with an array of artists. IIRC they weren't even always credited. And Mike is not really an obvious answer.

I think he did basically every LP release on the Warners labels for many years.
