Brotherhood of Man is a British pop quartet which was formed in 1969 by the songwriter Tony Hiller
, who told us: "I had two jobs at that time - I was General Professional Manager of an American Music Publishing Company, Mills Music, and I was also a record producer for Decca Records UK. I produced the record at Decca Studios, London. At the recording I had great musicians, wonderful arrangement, terrific engineer, and the exceptional voices of the Brotherhood of Man which I had founded and put together. They were Roger Greenaway (who went on to become a hit songwriter and was inducted into the US Songwriters' Hall of Fame), Tony Burrows (who was unique in that he had three major hits in three different bands in the same period - 'Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes)
,' 'My Baby Loves Love' and 'United We Stand' - making musical history.
Johnny Goodison was the first member of my band and co-writer of many of the titles I wrote for them. After this, he went on to write and produce many hits, including the Bay City Rollers. Plus two sisters, who were the top session singers of the day and were on numerous hits for major artists at that time, Sue Glover and Sunny Leslie. I also recorded tracks with them and Sunny went on to have a hit with 'Doctors Orders.' I was so honored and LUCKY to have worked with such a wonderful array of talent. When I played back the recording I had made, there was thunderous applause in the studio. We all knew that there was magic in the air."
