stband#13 – Sanford-Townsend Band – “Smoke From a Distant Fire” – (1977)

John Townsend and Ed Sanford aren’t really household names in the world on rock ‘n’ roll, but they did have a successful single in 1977 with this soft rock hit. In fact, it broke the top ten, peaking at #9. Interesting note: this group was the opening act for Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours tour. That would’ve made for a pretty awesome show.
