R. B. Greaves

Shooting stars, flashes of light … and one hit wonders, hold a special place in music and the history of gold records. This hit by R B Greaves was one of them. Here you see it celebrated with an Authentic, First Presentation, Second-State, RIAA 45 White Matte.

Take A Letter Maria was released in September 1969 reaching a peak Billboard chart position of #2.  It tells of a man who has learned of his wife’s infidelity the night before, and dictates a letter of separation to his secratary Maria (then he asks Maria out to dinner!).
