About this topic


"Reach out of the Darkness" is a 1968 single and one-hit wonder by Friend and Lover which reached number 10 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart.[1] The song was written by James "Jim" Post, who together with his then-wife Catherine "Cathy" Post nee Conn made up Friend and Lover. The single was recorded in Nashville for the Verve Forecast label. Ray Stevens played keyboards and arranged the strings, with Joe South and Bill Lowery producing.[2] The 1969 follow-up album, also titled Reach Out of the Darkness, was recorded in Atlanta and produced by Buddy Buie.

The song was featured in a 1999 television commercial by Milton Bradley for their Get-Together Games and can also be heard in both the 1988 film titled 1969 and Episode 6 of the 2005 ABC Television series "Night Stalker."

Krush sampled this song for their recording of "Let's Get Together (So Groovy Now)", appearing on the soundtrack to the comedy Mo'Money, starring Damon Wayans and Stacey Dash[3].
