The Creations were vocalists Charles Boyd, Eugene Amos, Michael Wiggins and Gerald Dickerson, and they released some wonderful records during the late '60's/ early '70's Chicago vocal group movement.

Here, the group (with such lovely vocals) takes on a very serious subject- the draft was gutting the male population of a huge proportion of inner city and less privileged youths, and so many young men didn't return home. In this song, they gently urge their young lady friends to simply remember them, and it gives me a big lump in my throat thinking about all the senseless killing from ANY war and the memories of those (with their whole lives ahead of them) left behind.

from c1969...

Have you ever thought of trying to clean your vinyl records using wood glue Derek? I saw a tutorial on youtube and it cleaned the vinyl almost to CD quality, pretty scary how good it worked actually. Just a thought, i figure it would make your quality here even better, plus once you clean them and record them, then when you put them away they are clean and ready to use at anytime and or sell for much more $ as they seem flawless =) Thanks again, derek
