The Volcanos - Help Wanted - Arctic

60s SoulPosted by Martin Wed, June 01, 2011 08:29:33

A wonderful 1966 dancer from Philadelphia PA. The Volcanos released nine singles between 1964 and 1968, and used only thirteen songs. Such is the case with this release, where "Help Wanted" had previously been used as the A-side (it's the B-side here) in ´65, then backed with "Make Your Move". Here the official A-side is instead "A Lady's Man". I believe this is the group's first collaboration with songwriters Gamble & Huff who later on had huge success with acts like O'Jays etc. on Philadelphia International Records in the 70s. Although The Volcanos only charted once in the 60s, they too did well in the 70s when a large part of the group formed the backbone of disco act The Trammps. Enjoy!

"Help Wanted"
