THE CREATIONS - A DREAM b/w FOOTSTEPS
A beautiful record with a rather odd story...
Allegedly, the Chicago group THE CREATIONS travelled to Detroit to cut this record, and three of the singers (Charles Boyd, Eugene Amos and Michael Wiggins woke up in the morning with no voices due to having colds! Only Gerald Dickerson appears on the record, and the other voices heard are those of the Detroit group BROTHERS OF SOUL (Fred Bridges, Richard Knight & Robert Eaton), whose members also wrote the song! Chicago plus Detroit is the musical equivalent of steak and lobster; it's just PERFECT.
While the downright nocturnal 'A Dream" gets most of the attention, the flip side, "Footsteps" is a superb uptempo track.
