The Foundations had two major hits, the first was “Baby Now That I’ve Found You” which went to No.1 in the UK and Canada and was Top 10 in the US. Their second track "Build Me Up Buttercup" was released in 1968 through Pye records. This well known record is still played today and was recently used in the film 'There's Something About Mary'. Their final hit was "Born to Live, Born to Die" after which the records dried up and they split in 1970.
