The Cuff Links
The Cuff Links were an American rock/pop studio group from Staten Island, New York, United States. The band had a U.S. No. 9 hit in 1969 [with "Tracy", with rich harmonized vocals provided entirely by Ron Dante. The track was produced as part of a series of recording sessions – sometimes as many as six in a day – by Dante, with the songs released under a variety of band names
"Tracy" hit the charts in October 1969, just as "Sugar, Sugar" ,a single for The Archies and the product of another anonymous recording session by Dante, was descending from its No. 1 spot.
Dante's vocals for "Tracy" were recorded in just hours. He recalled: "I put on a lead voice, doubled it a few times, and then put about 16, 18 backgrounds."
"Tracy" spent 12 weeks in the U.S. chart, and subsequently sold over one million copies, being awarded a gold record by the R.I.A.A.
