Exile a band from Richmond, Kentucky- started back in 1963- they had line-up changes over the years- and payed their dues before 15 years later finally having a hit- and it was a big one- “Kiss You All Over” which was inspired by Barry White’s “It’s Ecstasy When You Law Down Next To Me”- went to #1 and stayed at the top spot for a month. They had one other top 40 hit and it only made it to #40- “You Thrill Me.” In the 80’s they would have success as country artists.
