Love & Kisses

Love & Kisses


Love & Kisses was a disco studio group assembled by European producer Alec Costandinos, with singers Don Daniels, Elaine Hill, Dianne Brooks and Jean Graham.

After collaborating on Cerrone's debut album Love In C Minor (1976), Costandinos assembled Love and Kisses in early 1977, and shortly after the group released two disco masterpieces as a double A-side, "Accidental Lover" and "I Found Love (Now That I Have Found You)", which were full side lengthy songs combining lush orchestral sounds, classical influences, male and female vocals, strong bass lines and intricate arrangements. The single charted at #1 for three weeks on Billboard's Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart.

The following year saw the release of their second album entitled How Much, How Much I Love You, (title track covered on side A, "Beauty And The Beast" completed side B) utilising the same basic formula. Both songs became top 5 Disco smashs. This was followed closely by the group's biggest hit, "Thank God It's Friday", the title song from the movie. It peaked at #23 R&B, #22 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and #1 for six weeks on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. The soundtrack, which featured Donna Summer's "Last Dance" and the Commodores "Too Hot Ta Trot", was nominated for several Grammy Awards.

Their third and final album was the unimpressive You Must Be Love released almost unnoticed in 1979. Shortly thereafter the group disassembled.


Although the lead singer is not identified most likely Joanne Stone was lead on most of his music. The usual singers are Sue Glover, Stephanie DeSykes, Sunny Leslie, Vicki Brown and Joanne Stone known as the Birds Of Paris.
