Carl Graves' smooth single "Baby, Hang Up the Phone" was a Top 20 R&B hit in 1974. Graves who was from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, sang with the band Skylark (which also included David Foster and singer Donny Gerard) who had a 1973 number nine pop hit with "Wildflower." Signed as a solo artist to A&M Records and working with producer Spencer Proffer, Graves' own "Baby, Hang Up the Phone" reached the R&B charts in late 1974 and was on his self-titled LP Carl Graves. His next charting singles were the more up-tempo "Heart Be Still," from the LP of the same name, and the Ariola America single "Sad Girl." Graves can also be heard on Lee Oskar's 1997 album, So Much in Love. ~ Ed Hogan, Rovi
