Mel & Tim

Real Name:
Mel Hardin, Tim McPherson
Profile:
Cousins Mel Hardin and Tim McPherson, both from Holly Springs, Mississippi, were discovered by Gene Chandler in Chicago.
Mel's mother, Yolanda Hardin, signed them to her label Bamboo Records (4) in 1969. Their first single, "Backfield in Motion", went gold in 1969 with over one-million sales.
In 1971, they were signed by Barry Beckett at Muscle Shoals sound studio and recorded "Starting All Over Again", which master was bought by Stax Records, starting a string of Stax hits and sort of filling the gap left by Sam & Dave after the split with Atlantic in 1968. Unfortunately, Tim passed away in 1986.
