The Creations-A Dream-Zodiac

70s SoulPosted by Martin Wed, February 04, 2009 11:23:00


By Martin:

This record has a strange story.

Credited to the Chicago group The Creations which consisted of Gerald Dickerson, Charles Boyd, Eugene Amos and Michael Wiggins it is actually the Detroit based group Brothers of Soul singing! It is written by The Brothers Of Soul (Fred Bridges, Richard Knigh &Robert Eaton) and produced by them to. The story is that The Creations went to Detroit to record ”A Dream” with the Brothers Of Soul as producers but the group had the A.C. turned on in the hotel room overnight and woke up with a cold, so the only person from the group actually on the record is Gerald Dickerson.

To add more confusion to the story, Soul Harmony Singles has this (there were several groups with the same name) Creations line up containing a certain Al Green among others. That line up is wrong.

Released on Rick Williams and The Brothers Of Soul´s Zodiac label in ´67, which was most known for its releases by Ruby Andrews as well as on Boo records #1002 but then credited to The Brothers Of Soul ,there is a Detroit and Chicago connection on this one bringing it all together nicely enough and sounding like a dream...

Be sure to listen to the wonderful radioshow called Sitting In The Park, check out the interviews page to get the full story of The Creations.

A Dream
