“Brother Louie” was written and first a hit by Hot Chocolate in the UK where it went to #7. The song is about an interracial love affair. The Stories were only together a couple years and this was their only single to crack the Top 40- but they made it worth it- going all the way to #1.

Singer Ian Lloyd–“All of a sudden,” Lloyd explained to Triad’s Russel Wiener, “we had a big hit with a song that did not represent our music and the direction we were trying to go in. I didn’t think it would affect me that much, but it did. Consequently, I decided that I had to remove myself from that, so that I could come back and show what I really can do.
