Boney M – 1977 Love for Sale (Second Album)

In 1977, Boney M released their second album, Love for Sale, which contained the hits (#96 on the
Billboard Hot 100, #31 on the Club Play Singles chart), and “Belfast”. It also includes covers:
“Love for Sale” (by Cole Porter), “Have You Ever Seen the Rain?” (by Creedence Clearwater Revival), and “Still I’m Sad” (by The Yardbirds). It has been released in vinyl and then CD.
The group embarked on their first major concert tours with a live band of musicians called ‘The Black
Beautiful Circus’ (given their name after Maizie Williams’ first band, ‘Black Beautiful People’).
Though slow to start Love for Sale was certified Gold a year after its release in the UK. Both singles
from the album reached no.1 in Germany and the UK Top 10. By this time, sales had also slowly increased for their first album which had peaked at no.40 in the UK but was now certified Silver.
