Corrections are always welcomed, Enjoy !

01. Cody Black - Stranger Than A Fairy Tale
1961 - Pamela, born in Cincinnati

02. Special Delivery - Straight From The Heart
Originally called Act 1, the group Special Delivery was a rotating bunch of Washington D.C.-based singers that had a brief moment in the spotlight in 1976.

03. The Decisions - It's Love That Really Counts
1972 - Sussex 214

09. Otis Jackson & The Compromisers - Turn Out The Light

I think Jackson may be the originator of this joint since he passed away in 1970 here in ChiTown, if so it was also covered by The Captions which was on my FairyTales Vol. 4

Dottie Haynes & Millie Weaver aka The Cooperettes
it sounds like this music was taken right off , Monique - Never Let Me Go/
"If You Love Me" on Maurci label...another backing track that originated in Detroit but somehow ended up on a Chicago label too. It definatly is the same band! I saw MONIQUE 45 sold for $648.88 after 23 bids dayyymmmm!

15. Smoke - I'm So Glad You Came Along
1976 - Arco

16. Pure Gold - Have A Good Time
