(Vocal group, 1965–75)

Modelled on The Beach Boys and Four Seasons, and planting feet in both the easy-listening and hippy camps, this Californian sextet’s domestic chart career began with 1966’s ‘Along Comes Mary’. Next up were ‘Cherish’ and ‘Pandora’s Golden Heebie Jeebies’. After ‘Windy’ reached No. 1 and ‘Never My Love’ did nearly the same, The Association enjoyed another two domestic smashes in 1968, ‘Everything That Touches You’ and ‘Time For Livin’’ (their only UK Top 40 strike).
