Hi, R & B,
I'm not totally sure if I understand correctly the questio.
Anyway, i knows The Masqueraders appears in the credits as The Raders when are they the composers of the tunes.

Now I'm confused...what did you mean?
The Dells as The Players ??? What's that about???
I know the Andante's sang backgrounds on Supremes, Vandellas, etc... records, is that what you were looking for?

Okay gotcha, thanks for the 411 on the Players. Did The Dells also sing on all the songs in their album? I love the lead singer's voice especially on "I'm So Glad You Waited", what was his name again (my album is in a storage box with the rest)?
The Dells backing Dinah Washington in the studio.

For the Players' He'll Be Back Calvin Carter and Al Smith regarded the members of the band not good enough voices, so they were replaced by the Dells (without Marvin) leaving the Players' lead, Herbert Butler, as the only member of the group to sing on that single. Also on some later Players' tracks Chuck Barksdale attended.
|By Soul Sister (184.108.40.206) on Saturday, March 27, 2004 - 02:02 pm:|

Hi Soul Sister Robert Prueters books Chicago Soul & Chicago DooWop was excellent info regarding The Dells, The Players & the cross-pollenation between many Chicago groups. The relationships are quite broad & interesting.
Take care & say hi to Jimmy!
|By Juicefree20 (18.104.22.168) on Saturday, March 27, 2004 - 08:58 pm:|
Issac Hayes once recorded as Sir Issac & The DooDads. Regarding The Players & The Dells, listen to the sound of I'm So Glad I Waited by The Players. This was their follow up to He'll Be Back & the only voice to accompany Herberts was the bassman of The Dells. The record truly needed the harmonies that were present in He'll Be Back. Johnny Carters falsetto was sorely missed.
|By Soul Sister (22.214.171.124) on Saturday, March 27, 2004 - 09:08 pm:|
I have that book (Chicago Soul, that is) in with my other music books in storage boxes but must admit I never read it through.
Thanks for the 411, "I'm So Glad I Waited" is my favorite, then "He'll Be Back", in fact I like most of The Player's tracks on their album.
Jimmy says "Hi" to you too!

The Four Seasons recorded Don't Think Twice, It's Alright as the Wonder Who. Also The Dells were not credited for singing background for Barbara Lewis' Hello Stranger, or on a few of JoAnn Garretts' singles as well. Smokey & Ronnie White recorded "It" as Ron & Bill. And how about Valerie Simpson as Tammi Terrell on The Onion Song & others? Didn't The Cadets record as The Jacks? How about Patti LaBelle & The BlueBelles performing I Sold My Heart To The Junkman as The Starlets? Minnie Riperton recorded as Andrea Davis. Baby Washington recorded both as Jeanette & Justine Washington.The Vibrations recorded as The Jayhawks. The Persuaders recorded Give A Damn as The Internationals. Prince recorded as TAFKAP & as a glyph. Joe Tex, Don Covay, Solomon Burke, Ben E King & Arthur Conley recorded as The Soul Clan. Sonny & Cher recorded as Anthony & Cleo. L Rawls, Teddy P, D D Sharp, The O'Jays, B Paul & A Bell recorded as The Philadelphia International All Stars. Of course, Parliament recorded as Funkadelic. Jesse Belvin & John Watson recorded as The Shields. Harmon Bethea recorded as Maskman & The Agents. Darlene Love sang as everyone.

Hey Soul Sister, I'll always love He'll Be Back, Johnny sings his behind off & Herbert had such a great voice. My cousin was in Vietnam & I was 6. My Grandmother used to cry whenever that song came on. It took me years to find that 45 again, didn't find it until the 80s. Of course, it would later come out on CD. I liked I'm So Glad I Waited, but, there seemed to be a big hole there. With only Herbert & the Chuck on the tune, there were too many holes in the song for my taste. It needed those supporting background harmonies & I think that the lack of it hurt their records. Regardless, I have liked The Players from the age of 6 & I always will.
Sis, if you want to see the relationship between so many great groups & singers of the 60s & 70s, Robert Preuters Chicago Soul & Chicago DooWop are the greatest. Chuicago DooWop expanded even further when it came to Herbert Butler & the origins of The Players. I never knew any of this, as back then I was a baby & the music was so regionalized. I was amazed to learn how the different members of groups were intertwined with one another. Great books, simply great!
As always, it's great to see you here. God bless, always
|By Soul Sister (184.108.40.206) on Saturday, March 27, 2004 - 10:53 pm:|
Thanks Juice, the feeling is mutual.
I also love "Why Did I Lie", their verson of "Since I Don't Have You", and thought they did a good job with "Sunny". I liked the sentimentality of "I'm So Glad I Waited". I understand where your Grandmother was coming from, thats deep, I hope your cousin made it back alright Juice.
Jimmy is here bugging me to come upstairs and get the fights on HBO, Jermaine Taylor is boxing, middleweights are my faves. Gotta run, enjoy your night.
Take Care & Best Always,

You really seem to be a Players and Dells fan.
The Dells did uncredited background on many records.
Marvin: "...we made a living doing backgrounds. We were a studio group. We went and did things behind Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry and many others."
Chuck: "There was a time period in Chicago, when the Dells were probably the most sought-after background group..."
"...A lot of these people we did background for, we may not have known personally. We were the background vocal sound everybody was after."
Michael: "Calvin Carter at Vee-Jay had almost made us a studio group..."
They contributed to the sides by Barbara Acklin, Betty Everett, Wade Flemons, Andre Williams, Etta James, the Players etc. - and Joe Murphy:
Michael: "We did 'So Blue Without You' and another song. Joe's dead now. He was a big old vigorous, fun-loving guy. He had a very good voice like the guy with the Spinners, Philippe Wynne. A great singer, but never exposed."
(Soul Express, The Dells Story).

Don,-are you SURE that Barbara Jean (of The Lyrics) was Barbara Mason? I thought they were a local Detroit group with a connection to Johnnie Mae Matthews? Barbara Mason was already successful in Philadelphia by 1967. Why would she record for a local Detroit label which had no national distribution? The Lyrics were a local Detroit group. Why would they bring in a successful singer, and not exploit her fame?
Also, I find it hard to believe that Frances Nero was Freda Payne. It was quoted here on SD, that Frances Nero only had the one record on a Motown label, because she won a talent contest (no contract). Freda Payne had already been singing for several years (ABC) before Nero's record was recorded and released. Also, their voices sound different to me. Where did you get your information for these two assertions?
I find your guess that Geraldine Jones might be Geraldine Hunt, intriguing. I'll have to play their songs back-to-back, to hear if their voices seem to be the same person.
|By STONEWALL (220.127.116.11) on Thursday, April 15, 2004 - 06:33 am:|
Responses to enquiries by Robb the K ---
BARBARA MASON was only & always Barbara Mason - I had some one ask her grown son, who is a musician in her band.
P.S. If U don't have her c.d. already, "The Best Of Barbara Mason", from "Yes, I'm Ready" to "Another Man", get it. Barbara as soulful, sweet and sexy as ever, has re-recorded all of her songs for this great collection.
FREDA PAYNE only sung under her name FREDA PAYNE. As Robb stated, she was FREDA PAYNE at ABC Records. I have some of her singles from ABC. From there she went directly to Invictus in 1970. Much as Motown wanted her, Freda never sang for Motown.
|By STONEWALL (18.104.22.168) on Thursday, April 15, 2004 - 01:13 pm:|
FYI, our own talent scout/record producer/music historian Weldon McDougal is the one who actually brought BARBARA MASON into the recording studio in 1965 in Philadelphia for Arctic Records. Ask him!
Bi the way, B.M. recorded her international hit, "Yes, I'm Ready", in just two takes.
