Gunhill Road is an American band based in Mount Vernon, New York, consisting of Glenn Leopold, Steven Goldrich, and Gil Roman, that was active primarily in the early 1970s. Paul Reisch replaced Gil Roman in 1973. They are best known as one-hit wonders for their lone pop hit, "Back When My Hair Was Short", which peaked at number 40 on the . Billboard Hot 100 in June 1973. On the Cash Box Top 100, the song reached number 25, and spent 15 weeks on the chart.

The people who bought the Gunhill Road album for the novelty hit "Back When My Hair Was Short" probably got quite a surprise when they got home and slapped the thing on the turntable. Instead of a collection of comic tunes, they were now the proud owners of a collection of mellow, introspective pop songs - and of course, one lightly comic number. The single version of "Back When My Hair Was Short" squeaked into the Top 40 in 1973 and continued to receive occasional rotation on oldies radio stations and on the Dr. Demento show. Two other singles were released, but to no purpose, and the band never followed up the album.

When I was 9 years old in 1973, my older brother Dave gave me the single "Back When My Hair Was Short" by Gunhill Road as a Christmas gift. I played it to death. I loved it. It became the song by which I measured all other songs. It told a story. It was catchy. It had a great chorus and message. It was concise. Over the years and through many changes including a time-consuming career, new cities, marriage, children, and bills bills bills, l lost the single, but I never forgot the tune. I found myself still able to sing parts of the song after not having heard the record for years. Then, a few days ago, my brother Dave came to visit and he had a new gift for me. It was a re-issue of the album containing "Back When My Hair Was Short" by Gunhill Road. I was surprised, but I was also worried. At my age, would I find the song "dated" and less engaging than I found it as a pre-teen? Would listening to the song now totally ruin my fond childhood memory of it? Well, I had no choice in the matter. My brother inserted the CD, clicked to the song from my childhood, and on came that wonderful piano intro to "Back When My Hair Was Short." I was instantly transported through space and time. I was in my childhood bedroom. I was 9 again and I fell in love with the song once more. But, here's the best part. I finally had the album and "Back When My Hair Was Short" was not the only good song. I listened to the album and I really enjoyed "42nd Street," "Sag Harbor" and "Ford Desoto Cadillac." I also enjoyed "We Can't Ride the Roller Coaster Anymore" which was the B-side to "Back When My Hair Was Short." Gunhill Road had a lot going for it. They had wonderful three-part harmonies and catchy songs. This album is now a permanent part of my CD collection and I will look for other Gunhill Road music. They should have been bigger! To me, they always will be right up there with the best.
