The Flipside

Recording a hit record is like catching lightning in a bottle - certain pop stars manage to do it over and over, but for the people that were heard from - once was good enough. These were the stories of eight Texas musicians, each one immortalized by a single recording - never again to return to the hit parade. You've heard most of these hits--songs like "Hey, Baby!", "If You Lose Me (You'll Lose a Good Thing)", "Hey Paula", "Tighten Up"--but the stories of the people behind these songs have been mostly forgotten, until now. Here are the songs, and the people who made them, back together again.
