THE SHEPPARDS - STUBBORN HEART


Recorded towards the latter part of this Chicago group's career, this amazing side shows a group that started in the doo wop era adapting their incredible group vocals for the harder soul sounds of the day.

The Sheppards found their biggest success early on, in 1961, with a gorgeous ballad called "Tragic" that got them a slot on American bandstand. However, their career became just that- tragic- as they never had another hit, although the quality of records such as this certainly deserved more.

from 1967...
