Guys ‘n’ Dolls – Do You Remember (1980)

Picture1Guys ‘n’ Dolls was a British pop group established from 1974 to early 80s as a counterpart to ABBA . They were three girls and three boys after auditions to start the band consisted of vocalist Paul Griggs (1944), Dominic Grant (1949), David Van Day (1956), Thereza Bazar (1957), Martine Howard and Julie Forsyth (1958).

Kelompok vokal yg terdiri dari 3 pasang pria dan wanita hasil audisi, dibentuk di Inggris untuk menandingi popularitas ABBA asal Swedia. Namun mereka kurang bersinar meski telah berusaha lebih dari 10 tahun, juga gagal di berbagai ajang lomba seperti di Jepang 1978 hingga Eurovision 1979. Akhirnya mereka pindah ke Belanda setelah merilis singel Do You Remember. Judul yg terdapat di dalam kaset kompilasi lagu cinta versi Prambors awal 80an, saat pertama kali aku mendengarkan. Balada indah dari kelompok ambisius namun teramat minim informasi, maka kurilis kembali dalam video ini (nDy).
