1980 Mary MacGregor – Mary MacGregor

macgregor-mary-1980Mary MacGregor is Mary MacGregor’s fourth and final album, released in 1980. After recording two albums for Ariola Records – who had also released a Mary MacGregor compilation – MacGregor had recorded the track “Good Friend” for the 1979 film Meatballs whose soundtrack album was released by RSO Records. “Good Friend” had been sufficiently successful – reaching #39 on the Billboard Hot 100 – for RSO to sign MacGregor in December 1979. This resultant self-titled album produced a minor hit in “Dancin’ Like Lovers” – #72 in the spring of 1980 – followed by the non-charting “Somebody Please” which was evidently MacGregor’s final single release. The Mary MacGregor album is out of print and has never been issued on CD.
