Jimmy Greenspoon, Three Dog Night keyboardist, dies at 67

By Richard K. Barry

Three Dog Night had three No. 1 singles between 1969 and 1972: “Mama Told Me (Not to Come),” “Joy to the World,” and “Black and White,” a song about racial equality written in 1954.

In all, the group had 21 singles making it to the Billboard Top 40.

Jimmy Greenspoon played keys, an essential part of the sound for Three Dog Night. He died of cancer last week, according to his agent, Chris Burke.

Let's listen to the group's song about racial equality, written in 1954 (by David I. Arkin and Earl Robinson), made a hit in 1972, and as relevant as ever today.
