The legacy.

The Fabulous Denos - I've Enjoyed Being Loved By You - King

60s SoulPosted by Martin Wed, May 25, 2011 08:12:24

This is to my knowledge the last release by this Georgia group who also recorded as The Fabulous Dinos for the local Saber label in the early 60s. Members Robert Fears (aka Bobby Dixon), Allan Pace, James Walker, Hezekiah Sheffield and Rickey Andrews formed a band playing RnB in clubs in and around the Atlanta area in the late 50s. After an unsuccessful release on the Saber label in 1960 and one on New York's Musicor Records in 1962 they relocated to Macon Georgia to try out their luck. There they were signed to the King label and had a further two 45s released in 1964. Although both 45s are absolutely top drawer ("Bad Girl" has also been featured here previously) they sank without a trace. The co-writer of this track and most of the Denos' material Robert Fears later had his share of success as a member of The Ohio Players. Enjoy!
