The Medallions got together in at Lander College in Greenwood, South Carolina, when group founder John McElrath and his friends formed the band to make a little extra money to help pay for school. It was a local hit when I was a teenager, and when we put our band together, we started to play it, too. We actually pulled in people off the street and had a big crowd in the studio to make background noise, and that party atmosphere gave us the sound we were looking for. Initially, the record was released on their For Sale label, and they sold them at their performances, but it got some airplay and really started to take off.
