You already KNOW!!! Check out this footage of Brenton Wood from the late 60's.
Early singles for Brent Records and Wand Records failed to chart. After signing with Double Shot Records, Wood had a hit with "The Oogum Boogum Song" in the spring of 1967. It reached number 19 on the Billboard R&B chart and number 34 on the corresponding Billboard Hot 100 pop listing. His biggest hit came in September of the same year, as "Gimme Little Sign" hit #9 on the pop chart and #19 on the R&B charts. It sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc In the song, "Gimme Little Sign" is not sung, instead the chorus repeats "Give Me Some Kind of Sign".
