The Common People

The Common PeopleFrom: Grand Rapids, MI, USA

Forming in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1968, The Common People are best remembered for their live attraction, where they extensively toured the upper Midwest in the late 1960s and ’70s. In 1968, the band recorded an excellent cover of the Beatles’ “Here, There And Everywhere,” featuring Lynn Nowicki on vocals. Nowicki was the singer for Lyn & The Invaders, an early female-led rock ‘n’ roll band who released the 1966 song “Boy Is Gone.” Early incarnations of The Common People included some of the members of the Invaders, however, “Here, There And Everywhere” is quite an anomaly, sounding very different than the Invaders or the Common People’s club/festival-friendly rock. For the recording, Nowicki’s vocals were run through a Leslie amp or tremolo unit, with only an acoustic guitar and a delicate rhythm machine as accompaniment.
