Peter Lemongello… WHERE ARE YOU?


Let me know…

You played at my father-in-law’s restaurant, The Piermont in Closter, New Jersey (many years ago) so, my wife always says that she met you. We still have the 8-track you gave her, but unfortunately, no 8-track player. You were the first to sell a million records on TV and yet you don’t have a website today?

Whenever we don’t know who sang a song, the same answer is always shouted out… Peter Lemongello!

So, tell us where you are or where to buy a CD or I’m changing my answer to Gordon Lightfoot.


There’s not a real lot out there on Peter. The mastermind of marketing isn’t marketing himself. He needs to get his name out there more. I’ll do my part, but with no new info, it isn’t easy. *hint*
Hey, Rex Smith is selling CDs out of the Philippines, (I know, I bought one). Come on… I’ll advertise.


Time Magazine article from 1976 from the time of Love 76.

Update: The hits on this post have far exceeded any other on the site. Here’s a Lemongello commercial for Love 76. Thanks to Nat for reminding me to look on YouTube and thanks to TattooedGQ for posting this on YouTube.

    I’ve never left commens on sites for anything.. I just had to leave one here. I grew up listening and lovin’ Peter Lemongello. Stone-cold fox! LOL. I was born in August of ’71 so I never purchased Love’76 personally but Thank God my mom did.I get chills to this day just looking at the album cover, which I still have and cried when movers broke my record. Was never able to replace but hope to. Good to still have you around. You are part of a globe of reasons why I love music and love to sing. Funny thing with that commercial for Love ’76 on youtube, the address they advertised to send in for ta copy of the album is the area I’ve lived in all my life NY,NY 10028. I am 10029.. Too funny. I’d kill for an 8-track..LOL

    I remember a commercial for Peter Lemongello (Love 76) when I was 12 years old. I always wondered what ever happened to him or was it just a dream I had. Well, 31 years later I finally got a chance to see and hear the commercial and other videos of him. Wow.

  18. Neil Says:

    Found this on YouTube. A new artist named Will Dailey seems to have had some great fun recreating the old Peter Lemongello TV commercial. Thought I would share:

  19. Alan Kornweiss Says:

    I knew Peter back in the 70’s. I worked in a shopping mall on Long Island in New York. I remember him coming into our store when he was just getting popular. He’ll know what store and where it was if he ever reads this. Would love to speak to him again. I was always a big fan!
