Stars on 45, which consisted solely of studio session musicians under the direction of Jaap Eggermont, formerly of Golden Earring, popularized the medley, by recreating hit songs as faithfully as possible and stringing them together, with a common tempo and relentless underlying drum track. The point was to provide a danceable disco record which used familiar tunes.
Dutch girl Group formed around Patricia Paay. Originally formed as a gimmick for a Dutch TV-show ( with Yvonne Keeley and their mother Mrs. Paay) to perform a Andrews Sisters medley. Becoming a huge success, they replaced mother for Sylvana van Veen and became an act. After a few years the succees declined and they split up around 1987. In 2007 they tried to make a comeback with their former successingle "Stars on 45".
