Climax Blues Band needed a hit tune for their L.P., Gold Plated, and out of desperation and inspiration created “Couldn’t Get It Right.” The song vaulted to #3 on the US Hot 100 and #10 in the UK. Looks like they did get something right that time.
Watch the band, with sax player Colin Cooper singing lead, perform on the UK’s Top of the Pops in late 1976.
