from YOUR PLACE OR MINE
written by Wally Holmes
Originally from California, The Hues Corporation was a pop/R&B trio formed in the late sixties under the wing of manager/music-maker Wally Holmes. In 1974, The Hues Corporation rose to fame thanks to their mega-hit, “Rock The Boat.” Written by Holmes and sung by group member Fleming Williams, “Rock The Boat” sold well over two million copies and kept the #1 position for weeks on both sides of the Atlantic. “Rock The Boat” also has the distinction of being one of the first disco songs to reach the top of the charts worldwide.
