Brotherhood of Man

Formed by record producer and composer Tony Hiller in 1969, Eurovision winners Brotherhood of Man's first taste of fame came with the release of their 1970 Top 20 global hit, "United We Stand." The legendary British pop group – which originally featured co-writer John Goodison with session singers Roger Greenaway, Sue Glover, Sunny Leslie and Tony Burrows (who left shortly after the single's release) - unveiled their debut album of the same that year. By 1973, Hiller's initial concept of revolving session singers shifted to form a definite four-member line-up composed of Martin Lee, Lee Sheriden, Nicky Stevens and Sandra Stevens. As a four-piece, they scored a series of hits all over the world, including 1977's "Angelo" and 1978's "Figaro," but experienced their most iconic moment in the spotlight after winning the 1976 Eurovision Song Contest with "Save Your Kisses for Me." The platinum-selling song became a global chart-topper and the highest-selling Eurovision winner to date. During the late 1970s, Brotherhood of Man issued another seven studio albums, including Top 20 hit Love and Kisses in 1978, but marked their last commercially released studio album in 1983 with Lightning Flash, which contained their last single release, "When the Kissing Stops." The group notched up another slew of albums, including 2002's The Seventies Story, which is based on a live stage show they had undertaken at the time. Brotherhood of Man still performs live, and in 2006 appeared at the 50th anniversary of the Eurovision Song Contest gala held in Denmark.
