Signed to Atlantic by Ahmet Ertegun in the ‘70s, Daryl Hall & John Oates have sold more albums than any other duo in music history. Their 1973 debut album, “Abandoned Luncheonette,” produced by Arif Mardin, yielded the Top 10 single, “She’s Gone,” which also went to No. 1 on the R&B charts when it was covered by Taveras. The duo recorded one more album with Atlantic, “War Babies,” (produced by Todd Rundgren) before they left and promptly signed to RCA. Their tenure at RCA would catapult the duo to international superstardom.
From the’70s to ’80s, the duo would score six No. 1 singles including “Rich Girl,” “Kiss on My List,” “Private Eyes,” “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do),” “Maneater” and “Out of Touch” from their six consecutive multi-platinum albums including “Bigger Than Both of Us” (1976), “Voices” (1980), “Private Eyes” (1981), “H2O” (1982), “Rock N Soul, Part I” (1983) and “Big Bam Boom” (1984). The era would also produce an additional five Top 10 singles, “Sara Smile,” “One on One,” “You Make My Dreams,” “Say It Isn’t So” and “Method of Modern Love.”
In 1987, the R.I.A.A. recognized Hall and Oates as the No. 1 selling duo in music history, a record they still hold today. On May 20, 2008, the duo was honored with the Icon Award during BMI’s 56th Annual Pop Awards. The award has previously gone to the Bee Gees, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Paul Simon, Brian Wilson, Willie Nelson, James Brown, Ray Davies, Carlos Santana and Dolly Parton. In 2014, Hall and Oates were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Hall and Oates released their first new concert video in seven years: “Daryl Hall and John Oates: Live in Dublin” in March 2015.
