Though 'The Fruit Song' is her signature song, her highest charting single was the snappy 'The Phone's Been Jumping All Day' on Casablanca Records, which went to Number 10 R & B on Billboard's R & B chart in summer 1975.
Reynolds was actually cutting singles back in 1969 with 'Down On Me / Don't Set Me Free'. Following this release 1971 saw 'I Don't Mess Around / People Make The World' and then in 1974 came 'I Know He'll Be Back Someday / You Ain't The Only Man'.
Her only other R & B charting single was its follow up,'Lay Some Lovin' On Me,' Number 46 R & B, fall 1975.
With its 'fruitful' cover, the singer's LP, 'Cherries, Bananas And Other Fine Things' on Casablanca was issued in June 1976 and charted Number 59 R & B that fall.
One single from the LP, 'The Fruit Song', written by Lawrence Payton of The Four Tops and Fred Bridges, became a huge disco hit,a post-release collectible and a steppers standard.
One release followed in 1978 entitled 'I'm Hooked On You'.
'The Fruit Song' can be found on Classic Mellow, Vol. 1 on BMG / Mastercuts.
Tragically, Jeannie Reynolds took her two children's lives before committing suicide in 1980.
The sad event was, apparently, drug related.
