Mill Valley

Post by Ben Zonia » Fri May 03, 2024 2:03 pm

Anyone remember this? It was played on more modern (not the Sinatra, etc. dominated ones) Adult Contemporary Stations in Michigan back in 1970, even though not on any remaining local charts from Michigan on ARSA. Teacher singer Miss Abrams and her third grade class from California. Drove the acid metal rockers nuts.

The song runs 3:00 instead of 2:17 as the 45 mono single labeled.

Miss Abrams had 2 more songs that hit the Billboard Adult Contemporary Chart. This song "Buildin' A Heaven On Earth" was written by Norman Greenbaum (of 1970 "Spirit In The Sky" & "Canned Ham") which went to # 39 in January 1971. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kNzpH26CHyI

By the way I could not find the original song "Buildin' A Heaven On Earth" by Norman Greenbaum on any of his albums or on YouTube.
