Ain't that what you said? (Revisited)

Another from the deep archives, 7/17/2005:  And, continuing my recent trend to update when reposting. A couple of tweaks, added some links, and (of course) a photo:

Three Dog Night's song "Liar" made it's Top 40 debut on this day (7/17) back in 1971. Three Dog Night dominated the early 70's, with 17 Top 40 hits between 3/1970 and 8/1975. Add 4 Hits in 1969 and you get 21 Top 40 hits in under 6.5 years.  And every single they released made the Top 40.  That's pretty impressive.

"Liar" peaked at #7, one of 8 Top 10's.....  It was written by Russ Ballard of Argent, best known for their hit "Hold Your Head Up".  Ballard also wrote "Since You've Been Gone" which was a hit for Rainbow.   And "Winning" which scored for Santana.  And  "I Know There's Something Going On" which was a post-ABBA hit for Anni-Frid Lyngstad.  Hmmmm......  I didn't most of that until I started this post revision....

But this was supposed to be about Three Dog Night.
