Mel & Tim Biography
Mel's mother, Yolanda Hardin, signed them to her label Bamboo Records (4) in 1969. Their first single, "Backfield in Motion", went gold in 1969 with over one-million sales.
In 1971, they were signed by Barry Beckett at Muscle Shoals sound studio and recorded "Starting All Over Again", which master was bought by Stax Records, starting a string of Stax hits and sort of filling the gap left by Sam & Dave after the split with Atlantic in 1968. Unfortunately, Tim passed away in 1986.
