Through the ’70s, Dan Hartman was an associate from the Edgar Winter season Group and was also in Johnny Winter’s strap for a while. Hartman was also a program musician that backed artists as varied as Ian Hunter, Stevie Question, Todd Rundgren, and Ronnie Montrose. After liberating one undistinguished single pop/rock recording in 1976, he strike the big style using the good disco album, Quick Replay. Its follow-up, Relight My Open fire, wasn’t as effective and Hartman retreated towards the studio room, creating .38 Special, the common White Band, and James Brown; he was behind the panel for Brown’s return hit, “Surviving in America,” in 1986. Hartman got one more strike in 1985 using the pop-soul “I COULD DREAM OF You.” Once again, his follow-ups weren’t effective and he came back to creating. He was planning a new record during his loss of life in March of 1994.
