Charity Ball is the second album by the American rock group Fanny, released in 1971. The album's title track became the group's first top 40 hit.

Background[edit]

The album was, like the previous year's debut Fanny, produced by Richard Perry. The songs were all written by the group, with the exception of a cover of Buffalo Springfield's "Special Care". The group experimented with a wider range of musical styles than the first album, including ballads and funk in addition to straightforward rock 'n' roll. The front cover photograph was taken by Candice Bergen.[1]

Release[edit]

The album reached No. 150 on the Billboard 200.[2] The title track was released as a single,[3] reaching No. 40 on the Billboard Hot 100.[4]
