Apple, Peaches, Pumpkin Pie
#6 in 1967
|Jay & the Techniques was an inter-racial pop group, which
was formed in Allentown, Pennsylvania during the mid 1960s. A group
whose sound and songs were more pop than soul. The band was best known
for its Top 10 debut single, "Apples, Peaches, Pumpkin Pie",
which was released in 1967 and reached #6. Although this song served as
the band's primary hit, the group also captured various chart positions
with "Keep the Ball Rolling" (#14) and "Strawberry
Shortcake". "Keep the Ball Rolling" also notched up sales
in excess of a million copies, to secure a second gold disc for this
group. However, its position on the 1960s pop charts declined after "Baby
Make Your Own Sweet Music" was released. Jay & the Techniques
made their final effort with its R&B hit, "Number Onderful",
but after that, the group disbanded.
