Shake Your Groove Thing – Peaches & Herb (1978)
This American duo, comprised of Herb Fame and a succession of six different female vocalists to-date, originally found fame in the 60’s. They reached their greatest commercial success with the incarnation – featuring Linda Greene as “Peaches” – that produced this hit. Fame & Greene worked together through 1983, when Fame returned to his day job in law enforcement and Greene started a gospel ministry with her husband. Another incarnation of Peaches & Herb surfaced in the 90’s but did not produce any releases. Greene & Fame re-united (pardon the pun) in court in the early 2000’s to claim royalties from their former label…and won. The current incarnation, started in 2008 and featuring Meritxell Negre as “Peaches,” released their latest album in 2009. They can be seen performing in the US this summer.
