The Real Thing is a British band from Liverpool who was successful in the 1970s.

History[Edit]Edit

The Real Thing was originally a Quartet but is nowadays a trio consisting of Dave Smith and the brothers Chris and Eddie Amoo (fourth man Ray Lake is now deceased). They started with soul-like covers of American hits and signed in 1972 on EMI; the singles that they released there, however, made no impression. Afterwards they toured as support act for David Essex. After the arrival of guitarist Eddie Amoo began the glory years that produced hits as You To Me Are EverythingCan't Get By Without You " (both 1976) and influenced by Star Wars Can You Feel The Force (1979).

In 1982 The Real Thing went on tour again with Essex, but then as background singers; They also fulfilled this role on his single " Me & My Girl (Nightclubbing).

In 1986 was You to me are everything again a hit in a remix version.

In 2005 was love's such a wonderful thing (from 1977) sampled by Freeloaders in their hit So much love to give.
