"Shake Your Groove Thing" was a song by disco duo Peaches & Herb. It reached #2 for four weeks on the Billboard Disco chart in 1978. The single also reached #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #4 on the Billboard R&B Chart. Peaches & Herb are an American vocalist duo, originally comprising Herb Fame and Francine 'Peaches' Hurd Barker. Herb has remained a constant in Peaches & Herb since its creation in 1966, while six consecutive women have filled the role of Peaches. Herb Fame (born Herbert Feemster, October 1, 1942, in Anacostia, Washington, D.C.), sang in church and neighborhood groups as a child. After graduation from high school, he worked in a local record store where he met record producer Van McCoy and was signed to Columbia subsidiary Date Records by McCoy and A&R executive Dave Kapralik. Francine 'Peaches' Barker (born Francine Edna Hurd, April 28, 1947, in Washington, D.C.), using the stage name Francine Day, started a singing trio initially dubbed The Darlettes and later renamed The Sweet Things after a change of record label to Date Records. Having produced two releases for the trio, McCoy decided to record Feemster/Fame and Hurd/Day together at Kapralik's suggestion. The new duo, christened Peaches & Herb, had a string of successful singles and albums over the next two years such as "Let's Fall In Love", "Close Your Eyes", "For Your Love", and "Love Is Strange". Despite burgeoning success and a media image as the 'Sweethearts Of Soul', Barker chose to semi-retire from the duo after two years because of the rigors of touring. Fame retired the act in 1970 when, for personal reasons, he enrolled in the police academy of Washington, D.C. and thereafter joined the city's police department. Peaches & Herb lay dormant until Fame decided to re-enter the music business in 1976. In his search for a new Peaches, Herb again enlisted the assistance of Van McCoy, who suggested that Linda Greene would be suitable for the position. Fame met Greene and concurred, thereby leading to the formation of the most successful of the Peaches & Herb incarnations to date. Fame and Greene recorded seven albums altogether, including one album released only in Argentina. Their first album, "Peaches & Herb", was recorded for MCA Records and produced by Van McCoy, but it generated only one charted hit, "We're Still Together". Peaches & Herb signed with Polydor and released the album "2 Hot", which went gold. Its first single was "Shake Your Groove Thing"' which went gold and peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 in March 1979.
