The golden voice of PAT UPTON, is missed “More Today Than Yesterday,” on the 5th anniversary of his passing (July 28), as the original lead singer of SPIRAL STARECASE, left us in 2016 at age 75. Pat and the group burst on the scene with their signature hit song, blaring from AM radios in the late spring of 1969.

It was Pat’s commanding vocal delivery, that took it all the way to #12 on Billboard’s Hot 100. The song’s popularity has made it a favorite choice for decades, being played at weddings, and among the beach music community in the Carolinas.

Often overlooked, is this great follow-up hit from Spiral Starecase, entitled “She’s Ready” (1969)
