This studio group was created by Munich-based producers Silvester Levay and Michael Kunze. After scoring a UK hit in 1975 with Save Me, they went on to reach number 1 in the USA with Fly, Robin, Fly. The international fame persuaded the duo to audition some female singers to adopt the Silver Convention name and the lucky trio were Linda Thompson (ex-Les Humphries Singers), Ramona Wolf (formerly a solo artist) and Penny McLean. This second generation Silver Convention proved more than a match for their anonymous studio counterparts and achieved transatlantic Top 10 success with the infectious Get Up And Boogie (Thats Right), one of the most distinctive disco numbers of the period. A significant line-up change followed with the departure of Thompson, replaced by Rhonda Heath. Further minor hits followed until the group quietly disbanded in the late 70s.
