Letters from home brought more than messages from wives and sweethearts,
for these young men it brought visions of home.
Of the simple, everyday things that were once taken for granted.

The singer of this song has a special distinction in the world of rock & roll. His name is Tony Burrows, and he may be one of the most famous / anonymous characters in music history. He was a session singer in England, and in 1970, he had the distinction of singing lead on 4 hit songs in a few month span.
“Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes” by Edison Lighthouse,
“My Baby Loves Lovin’” by White Plains,
“United We Stand” by Brotherhood Of Man, and
“Gimme Dat Ding” by The Pipkins.
Music videos were produced for White Plains and Edison Lighthouse, but the studios did the Milli Vanilli move by having actors lip sync the parts. This video shows Tony singing live, and as anybody who has seen the color videos for both songs on youtube can attest, those singers look nothing like Mr. Burrows.
He also had the opportunity to perform 3 different songs by 3 different groups on January 29th of 1970 on BBC’s “Top Of The Pops.
On a final note, his last Top 40 contribution came in 1974 when he fronted the band First Class, which gave us the song “Beach Baby” He still performs today, but not too many people would know who Tony Burrows is if he came to their town. That is, until he started singing.
