David Bellamy arrived on the music scene in early 1974 when Jim Stafford took his song "Spiders & Snakes" to #3. Stafford’s manager, Phil Gernhard, took an interest in Bellamy and had him record lead vocals on a Larry Williams composition called "Let Your Love Flow". The result was less than satisfying and the song was shelved. Stafford went to Florida to tape a TV special, and trying to beat a threatening storm that was on the way Gernherd had the roadies perform a sound check before Stafford arrived to save time. Gernhard was discussing the set up with Tony Scotti when he became aware of a roadie singing the sound check. He realized he had found the voice that could carry "Let Your Love Flow" and was surprised to find that it was Larry Bellamy, David’s brother. Gernhard had hired Larry as a roadie. Once the tour was completed, Gernhard took Larry & David into the studio and re-recorded "Let Your Love Flow". On the final day of production, he found out that ABC Dunhill was getting ready to release a cover of the same song. Warner rushed out the release on January 31, 1976 and it hit #1 on May 1, 1976. Mismanagement nearly broke them, but the Brothers regrouped and focused on recording country music with hit songs like ‘If I Said You A Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me)" and made a successful career for themselves to this day.
