FlinterFile: Dan The Banjo Man- Dan The Banjo Man

From some songs, you can ask yourself how they ever became hits. This is such a song.The instrumental song, which did not feature a banjo in either the clip or the song, was made by Phil Cordell. Under the name Springwater he already had had a hit (I Will Return), but after that song, he success stopped. With this new name he released a song on the label Rare Earth, which belonged to Motown. It didn’t chart in the UK, but it became a number 1 hit in Germany in 1973 (mostly because it was used in a commercial for orange juice)! Enjoy
