Namesakes Jeffrey Arthur, Neil Gottlieb, and Michael Hurley discovered a common interest in music while they were attending the University of South Florida in the early 1970s. The trio somehow attracted the attention of Clive Davis who signed them to Columbia. Co-produced by Clay Pitts and David Spinozza and recorded in New York with an all star cast of sessions players, the group made their debut with 1973’s cleverly-titled “Arthur Hurley & Gottlieb“. Arthur was responsible for all of the material which was heavily geared to sensitive singer-songwriter and country-flavored moves. So here’s the thing – these guys weren’t half bad. As lead singer Arthur had a decent voice and exhibited a knack for crafting a pretty melody. Unfortunately, the album lacked a single original note or thought. This was literally music as a product, rather than art. At least to my ears it was one of those albums that you listened to and ten minutes later were unable to remember (source: Facebook)
