The Buckinghams formed in Chicago in 1965 when Carl Giammarese and Nick Fortuna of The Centuries joined up with Jon Jon Poulos and Dennis Tufano of The Pulsations. After adding keyboard player Dennis Miccoli, the group won a Battle Of The Bands for a Chicago TV show called All Time Hits and became regulars on the show for fourteen weeks. The British invasion was happening at that time and the TV show wanted the band to have a more British sounding name. A young security guard that worked for the TV station gave them a list of names he thought might work. The band toured extensively as a nostalgia act with Giammarese and Fortuna and released new recordings, the album "A Matter Of Time" and the single "Veronica" in 1985 for Red Label records. They were also a part of the highly successful Happy Together Tour which featured The Turtles, The Grass Roots and Gary Lewis.
This time out Sellers material is a perfect match for his native inclinations as a vocalist. He grew up singing in his family's gospel group and, more than anything, Sellers brings a very powerful, soulful voice to his interpetation of country. He excels at ballad singing and six of the 11 tracks on A Matter of Time are exactly that sort of tune, the strongest of them being "What A Lover Is For" and "That's Not Her Picture" (an odd lyrical story). The first single off this album is not a ballad, however, but the title track, a song with an easy groove that should.
