Chilliwack - My Girl (Gone, Gone, Gone)  (c.1981)

…forgotten tune from the early 80’s

I grew up listening to a lot of 50’s, 60’s and Motown music thanks in large part to my Dad.  This is one of the first post-oldies tunes I can remember being really excited about, to the point that my brothers and I stayed up late waiting for it to come on the radio so we could record it onto a cassette tape.  Listening to it now I think I must have heard hints of the 50’s & 60’s music I loved so much.

Chilliwack had a long career in their native Canada but only a handful of low-charting hits in the US, My Girl (Gone, Gone, Gone) being their biggest.
