The Volumes - You Got It Baby - Inferno

60s SoulPosted by Martin Thu, February 03, 2011 21:09:41

The Volumes consisted of Ed Union, Elijah Davis, Larry Wright, Joe Travillion, Ernest Newsome and on one of their releases (Impact 1017) Gerald Mathis sang lead. During their eight years together, from approx. 1962-70, the group went through eight different record companies, but stayed with the same production team for most of the time. Harry Balk (co-owner of the Impact and Inferno labels) and Duke Browner (co-owner and songwriter extraordinaire) worked closely with the group throughout the sixties without getting that all-important breakthrough hit. The group actually came closest on their first attempt, the 1962 release "I Love You" on Chex records which made the Top 30 on Billboard´s pop chart. This is their first release on the Inferno imprint, released in 1967.
