The Rugbys

The Rugbys were a rock band from Louisville, Kentucky that formed in the mid-1960s. They started out playing cover songs by artists like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, but soon began writing and performing their own original material.

In 1969, The Rugbys released their debut album, "Hot Cargo," which included their hit single "You, I." The song reached #22 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and helped to establish The Rugbys as a nationally and internationally known recording act.

The band's sound was characterized by their energetic performances and catchy, upbeat songs that blended elements of rock, pop, and garage rock. They were known for their strong vocal harmonies, driving rhythms, and catchy guitar hooks.

Despite the success of "You, I," The Rugbys struggled to replicate that success with their subsequent releases and eventually disbanded in the early 1970s. However, their music continues to be celebrated by fans of classic rock and power pop, and "Hot Cargo" remains a beloved album among collectors of rare and obscure rock records.
