Radio Mans fave with Orleans


Love Takes Time (1979)

Orleans is an American pop rock band best known for its hits “Dance with Me” (No. 6 in 1975); “Still the One” (No. 5 in 1976), from the album Waking and Dreaming; and “Love Takes Time” (No. 11 in 1979). The group’s name evolved from the music it was playing when it formed; their music is inspired in part by Louisiana artists, including Allen Toussaint and the Neville Brothers.

Orleans was formed in Woodstock, New York in January 1972, by John Hall, Larry Hoppen and Wells Kelly. In October 1972, the group expanded to include Larry’s younger brother, Lance, on bass. Drummer Jerry Marotta joined in 1976, completing the quintet.
