The Fuzz (band)


The Fuzz (band)

The Fuzz was an American vocal trio from Washington, D.C.. They started out in 1970 as The Passionettes, but changed their name when they signed to Calla Records in 1971. Their self-titled debut came out that year, and the single "I Love You for All Seasons" went Top 10 R&B and peaked at #21 on the US Billboard Pop Singles chart. [Joel Whitburn, "The Billboard Book of Top 40 Hits". 7th edn, 2000] The follow-up single, "Like an Open Door", hit #14 on the R&B charts, but further singles had no success and the group split up in 1972.
