Street People was a short-lived studio group led by acclaimed singer-songwriter Rupert Holmes (of "Escape (The Pina Colada Song)" fame). Not to be confused with the same-named mid-1970s New Jersey-based R&B/disco band, this group made a splash on the Pop/Rock charts in 1970 with the Holmes/Paul Vance-penned "Jennifer Tomkins," a bubblegum classic with an cheery musical arrangement and contrasting sorrowful lyrics that became a Top 40 hit. Street People also had a minor hit later that year with "Thank You Girl." Over the group's very short history, the group released only one album, "The Street People," on Musicor.
