Buy Abandoned Luncheonette. For all the success that this Philadelphia-based duo would experience later on in their career, Daryl Hall and John Oates struggled to find a commercial footing early on. Despite only reaching 33 on the album charts during its initial run, this album slowly grew in stature and would finally reach platinum-selling status about three decades after its release. The duo first met in while each was leading a separate group during a band competition. They later discovered that they had common musical interests and that both attended Temple University. Their debut album, Whole Oates , was produced by Arif Mardin and released in November but failed to have any commercial success. Rhythmically, the song is kept moving by the drums of the legendary Bernard Purdie.

Twenty-nine years after its release, the album was certified platinum over one million copies sold by the Recording Industry Association of America. After their first album, Whole Oats , failed to make an impact, the duo moved from Philadelphia to New York and started recording Abandoned Luncheonette , which became the first album they recorded as New Yorkers. Our producer, the legendary Arif Mardin carefully crafted each song, every bit of nuance, bringing in the perfect players for the right moments. And it all worked together as one beautiful musical tapestry. When Hall and Oates began producing their own records in the early s, they thought back to the things they had they learned from watching Mardin.
