Daily Herald report

The final band performing as part of the weekly Mid-Summer Classics Concert Series in Elk Grove Village offered a trip down memory lane for baby boomers. The concert Tuesday night featured Three Dog Night, one of the hottest bands of the 1970s. From 1969-1974, nobody had more Top 10 Hits, moved more records, or sold more concert tickets. During this period, Three Dog Night was the most popular band in America with 21 consecutive Top 40 Hits and 12 straight gold LPs. By late 1975, the group had sold nearly 50 million records. Hits included "Mama Told Me (Not To Come)," "Joy to the World" and "An Old Fashioned Love Song." The concert was presented by the village of Elk Grove and the Elk Grove Park District.
