The Muglestons - The Muglestons 1977 Lp

The Muglestons was a five-member family group which appeared in various places with artists such as Frank Sinatra, Pat Henry, Judy Lynn, Barbara Mandrell, Bob Hope and Charlie Rich. It has also appeared on the "Merv Griffin Show". In addition,  it was possibly one of the first musical groups to perform on Dick Clark's "American Bandstand" without a recording. The group has started singing together since the late 60s. They consisted by the brothers and sister Bob, Blaine, Troy, Lance and Desiree. In the mid 70s the group signed with the Mike Curb's label, called AOA. In 1977 the group released an album on ECI (Entertainment Consultants International).

The group sold nearly 2000 copies. The album was produced by Darwin Lamm. Arranged by Ken Harrison. Vocal arranged by Desiree Mugleston.
I have chosen a great song entitled "Do me wrong but do me". This song was written by Alan O'Day. This song has been performed from many famous artists like Johnny Mathis, Jack Jones, Mel Carter. Probably original recording by Laura Yager in 1974 on Ovation Records.

The group continued appearing in various shows like People Against Child Abuse (PACA) in the early 80s.

The Muglelstons used to come play at the Humboldt County Fair in Ferndale California. All the girls had crushes on the boys! Have wondered over the years whatever happened to them. Good memories!

The Muglestons played at my grade school (Carl Sandburg) when I was in fifth grade. I didn't see them again until years later when they appeared on a Lisa Hartman television special in the early 80's.

I am still in touch with them... Lots of changes. I still have the best memories hanging out at fairs, casinos and various other venues with them.

I hate to say this but these guys have been around for a looooong time. I remember the first time they came to Calgary, Alberta I was about 12 years old at the time. They came back to perform at the Calgary Stampede at least 20 years later, where they were a hit with the girls. Great performers, but they just couldn't quite hit the big time they had worked so hard to achieve. BTW I'm 52.
