By 1973, Mr. Camillo was well established as a producer and arranger, scoring a huge hit with Freda Payne's "Band of Gold" in 1970, and was on the verge of another smash with Gladys Knight and the Pips' "Midnight Train to Georgia".
The "magical difference" was that many of Tony Camillo's biggest hits were recorded right here in Hillsborough, in the $150,000 (1973 dollars!) basement recording student he built under his house.
