A Philadelphia group whose sound and songs were more pop than soul, Jay & the Techniques earned some points for the playful, joyous "Apples, Peaches, Pumpkin Pie," which was their lone Top 10 R&B and pop hit in 1967 on Smash. They got points in some circles for being an integrated group; lead vocalist Jay Proctor, Karl Landis, Ronnie Goosly, John Walsh, George Lloyd, Chuck Crowl, and Dante Dancho were in the lineup. They kept plugging away until the late '70s, but never had another hit, although their song "Baby Make Your Own Sweet Music" was quite popular in England.
