Vier englische Teenager gründeten 1967 die Band »The Elizabethans« - und blieben jahrelang unbeachtet. 1973 tauften sie sich um in »Smokie« - und noch immer ließ die Karriere auf sich warten. Erst 1975 erschien die gute Fee in Gestalt von »Suzi-Quatro«-Entdecker Mickie Most, der den vier Bandmitgliedern Christopher Ward Norman, Terry David Uttley, Alan Silson und Peter David Spencer nicht nur einen Schallplattenvertrag, sondern gleich auch noch das bewährte Autorenteam Nicky Chinn und Mike Chapman anbot.

Drei Jahre lang stürmte Smokie von da an mit melodiösen Popsongs fast jede Hitparade in Europa und vor allem die Tanzschulen, wie so viele ihrer Kollegen Mitte der siebziger Jahre, die sich wie sie durch einfache klare Tanzrhythmik auszeichneten. Von "If You Think You Know How To Love Me" (1975) über "Living Next Door To Alice" (1976) bis "Needles And Pins" (1977) reichte die Palette der Smokie-Hits, die der Band einen schier nicht enden wollenden Gold- und Platinregen bescherte. Die ohrwurmartigen Popballaden eroberten vor allem die Herzen des ganz jungen Publikums. Zwischen 1975 und 1981 platzierten Smokie 19 Hits in die deutsche Hitparade.

Doch Smokie ging es schließlich nicht anders als den meisten Bands, die jahrelang nach einem immer gleichen Erfolgsmuster arbeiten: Irgendwann hat man es satt, Erfolg hin, Erfolg her. So begannen die vier Musiker sich nach 1977 allmählich von Chinn & Chapman zu lösen und Norman und Spencer schrieben nunmehr ihre eigenen Songs (u.a. "Mexican Girl" 1978). Leadsänger Chris Norman baute zudem eine Solokarriere auf, die bis heute anhält.
