This is an awesome tune ... does anybody know who was in the group

Andy

We had a discussion about this on Soulful Detroit.  With Gary Pipkin and Brice Coefield involved. and the longtime rumour that Dorothy Berry, Oma Heard, and Zelpha Crawford were the group members, I think that that rumour might be the real answer.  But, I don't think anyone ever got a definitive answer from parties involved. 

 

There also was a rumour that the members were The Holloway sisters and Pat Hunt with Hunt on lead.  But I've ruled out the latter, given that Pat's voice isn't even close to The Wooden Nickle's lead singer's, and Brenda's and Patrice's voices are unique and easily recognisable, and, thus, are clearly not on that recording.

I think you are confusing Carol Hughes' release on Corby Records, which was distributed by Vault Records.  I lived in L.A. at the time of the releases of both records. I never saw, nor heard of The Wooden Nickles' cuts being on Corby Records, nor any third label.  Vault and Omen were the only issues I have ever seen.  And I've looked through literally millions of 45s, and hundreds of thousands of them in L.A. between 1965 and 1972.

Think you are right the Corby 45 I had was the Deuces Wild Keep on also on Vault, sorry for the confusion.
