The group started out in the mid 60's as Frankie & the Spinners but soon amended their name. They recorded from 1968 till 1977.

They were a mainstay on the Baltimore club scene.

What an incredible voice he had and what a legacy he has left. I have been giving "There Is A Beauty" a lot of plays lately - a wonderful track!

Another big Balto show he was on in 68  ..... 

I guess the song the handbill refers to ("Candy, Candy") was really "(My Girl Is Made of) Candy" ...
