The Longo Brothers - Looking for love 1978

The Longo Brothers was an unknown blue eyed soul group formed by the brothers Frank, Larry and Dino Longo from Canada. They have written and produced singles/albums for many other recording artists. They are focused on placing their songs with major producers and artists as well as with producers of television/commercials/movies. They have recently had 16 songs signed to a long term publishing contract with a prominent Los Angeles Publisher.

In 1978 they released a single entitled "Looking for love / Sun side up" on People City Music. Both of these songs were recorded at Zaza Sound, Toronto. Produced and arranged by Paul Zaza.

Both of these songs were included on the album entitled "Imitation Life" which was released on the same label in 1979.
Later they recorded some songs along with the female singer called Jill Vogel such as "In the middle of the night" and "Easy Life". They also recorded "The nightlife" and "Manhattan" which were both very good songs. "Manhattan" is a incredible and fantastic instrumental which released on People City Music in 1983. I don't know if this group ever released another album.
