The Lovers One Way To Love Frantic

This 45 is the other side of "Without A Doubt" which was played on the UK Northern Soul scene back in the early 90's.

The group were a West Coast one and started out as the Emotions before changing their name to The Lovers. The group consisted of Otis McHenry on lead; James Gregory second tenor; Daniel Sanders tenor; Robert Coleman baritone; and Melvin Williams bass/baritone. Otis McHenry left the group before the Frantic outings and was replaced by Cliff Butler. The group later became the Pacesetters with Darry Cannady joining them before he left to join the Natural 4.

    Is there any good reason to suppose that the Lovers on Frantic 801 have anything to do with the Bay Area group? That Frantic is a Kentucky label and Cliff Butler was a well-known Kentucky bandleader/singer; see
