Growing up in Detroit this group was apart of the Home Grown Sound. They came from Ann Arbor as did Bob Segar ( at age 6 ). They did a great version of Otis Redding’s Respect in 65. In fact Aretha Franklin’s version didn’t come out until 66. In all honestly us Detroit Kids still liked The Rationals version better. And had their version of the song broke out in every city Nationally at the same time it would of went to number one as it did in Detroit.
Still sadly this group never received the National attention, audiences, recognition or notoriety they deserved.
Out of all the songs they recorded. I Need You is my favorite.
