Tony Orlando & Dawn - Candida (1970)

Tony Orlando & Dawn - Candida (1970)
"Candida" was the first single released by the American pop music group Dawn, with vocals by Tony Orlando, in July 1970. The song, written by Irwin Levine and Toni Wine, was produced by Dave Appell and Hank Medress for Bell Records. Appell and Medress originally recorded another singer on the track, but decided that a different vocal approach would be preferable. Medress then approached Orlando to do the vocals. Orlando had been a professional singer in the early 1960s, but now worked as a music publishing manager for Columbia Records. Although initially worried about losing his job at Columbia, Orlando eventually agreed to lend his voice to the track.

Tony Orlando - Bless You on Rare Oldies But Goodies (1961)

Tony Orlando - Bless You on Rare Oldies But Goodies (1961)
"Bless You" is a song written by Barry Mann and Cyntia Weil, produced by Al Nevins and Don Kirshner, "Bless You" reached No 15 for Tony Orlando, debuted the week of Aug.14.1961

"Bless You" was a breakthrough for Mann personally as well as for Mann and Weil professionally. Although Mann had taken songwriting and his singing career seriously, he had never seemed deeply engaged by pop music and its expressive possibilities. His music had been aloof. If his songs weren't parodies, they went through the motions of emotion. The melody of "Bless You" was much more expansive than most of Mann's previous work and much more successful.
