In this week’s top ten back then selection, we travel back 41 years to October 1974. The song that came in at #5 on the Singing News top 40 chart for the month was the Oak Ridge Boys; “What A Time We Will Have Over There”.
The song, penned by Richard and Vivian Reid was found on the group’s first album (self titled) for Columbia Records, released in 1974. This was also the first album to feature Joe Bonsall on the tenor.
This was the highest the song would reach on the top 40 chart. This also happened to be the first Oak Ridge Boys album to feature the four vocalists still traveling with the group today; Joe Bonsall, Duane Allen, William Lee Golden and Richard Sterban.
Here is a YouTube clip of the song that landed at #5 in October 1974; the Oak Ridge Boys, “What A Time We Will Have Over There”.
