The Blendtones - Come On Home - Success

60s SoulPosted by Martin Thu, March 31, 2011 00:06:29

Most likely a 1963 or 64 release from the short lived Success label. Based In Des Moines Iowa, the label had just ten releases before folding but, judging by the records that I've heard, it wasn't quality that was lacking. The Blendtones had their two releases (number 1 & 5 in the Success catalogue) and the first one entitled "Dear Diary" B/W "Lovers" sold well in the L.A. area, reaching #3 on the local chart. The group consisted of brothers and Des Moines natives Gilbert & George Davis together with Ronnie Brewer. This is the B-side to "The Slide", their second and final outing for Success. It was written, as all their Success material, by George Davis who is now back performing with his brother again in the Des Moines area.
