Description

This album from 1976 was a promo that missed the pop charts; now it's a hit-making pop album of the '70s for a cause of women.

A one-hit wonder artist, Cyndi Grecco achieved fleeting fame in the 1970s. Her most-remembered song, titled “Making Our Dreams Come True,” which was the theme song of Laverne & Shirley, was also released as a single and became a Top 40 hit in July 1976. Grecco followed this up with an album and another single “Dancing, Dancing” which went unnoticed on the chart.
