The group began as 'Fat City', a husband/wife duo of Bill Danoff and Taffy Nivert. The band was also composed of Jon Carroll (keyboards and vocals) and Margot Chapman (vocals). Carroll and Chapman were also married after meeting as members of the group, but later divorced. Their son Ben Carroll is also a musician.
The group's debut album was the self-titled Starland Vocal Band and included "Afternoon Delight". The song was a #1 hit and the album also charted. The group was nominated for five Grammy Awards and won two — Best arrangement (voices) and Best New Act. The follow-up album Rear View Mirror was a failure in comparison, although it was a minor chart entry, spending 13 weeks on the Billboard 200 (reaching a peak of #104). In 2010 Billboard named the song the 20th sexiest of all time.

This is a great song, but I think it should be a little faster.

I was 13 when this song came out and would sing it to the top of my lungs...that is until my Mother would hear me singing it and and squeeze my jaws so tight and say..'NO..you will not sing that song in my house'. Heck, I thought it was about lunch time....until I was 15 and understood....still was a favorite and more so after that. The summer of 76 was the best time in my life. And this song will forever be a part of that time in which I cherish so much!!!!

Little known fact: The original concept of this song was about having to run home in the middle of the day to take a number two. The title was "Afternoon Asswipe".

Ok, what gives? I used to hate this song with a passion. Now I kinda dig it. Has modern music descended so far or is my brain rotting?
