Background[edit]

All This and Heaven Too reached the British Top Five in the albums chart in 1978. "Thank You for Being a Friend", which peaked at No. 25 in 1978, later gained popularity as the theme song for the 1985–1992 NBC situation comedy The Golden Girls (although performed by Cynthia Fee for the show). Andrew Gold is also known for his biggest UK hit song "Never Let Her Slip Away", which was a No 5. chart hit in the UK; Freddie Mercury assisted Gold as an uncredited background singer on the track.[1][2][3][4][5][6] Undercover duplicated the chart position of Gold's original with a 1992 cover version.
