Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes) (Bell, 1970)

The single hit the top spot in the UK where it remained for five weeks. Tony Macaulay and Barry Mason wrote Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes). They were essentially a studio group. When the song became a hit, in order to perform it on Top of the Pops (a popular music chart show in England), the songwriters found a group called Greenfields and brought them in a week before their appearance on TOTP. They were renamed Edison Lighthouse and mimed along to what became the fastest climbing #1 hit record in history. Elsewhere around the world, Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes) hit #5 in the U.S., #3 in Canada and South Africa and #1 in New Zealand.
