About MERCY

A Florida-based pop group formed by Jack Sigler, Jr. in the late '60s, Mercy hit it big in 1969 with the flower power ballad "Love (Can Make You Happy)." After enduring numerous lineup changes in its early days, with Sigler serving as the only consistent member, the band caught the attention of movie producer George Roberts, who wanted to use the band's new single ("Love [Can Make You Happy]") in a film called Fireball Jungle. The movie never saw a release, but Sigler found a home for the single with the small Sundi label, and the song became a huge hit, peaking at the number two slot on the Billboard Top 100. The group managed to chart once more with the single "Forever," but it would be their last taste of commercial success. ~ James Christopher Monger
