The Significants - I'm Loving Too Hard - some info

I never did know anything about this group and apologise if it has been covered before (please direct em if I missed it)

I looked at who and where and "think" I have found 2 of the members (or at least writers)

Elder Edward M. Nesbitt Jr. of St. Jude Great Commission Church in St Petersburg, Florida,  is married to Jo Ann Nesbitt (Oct 1972)

Here is the info, I have asked them on facebook but to no avail (some people as we know don't wish to discuss)

The bands ( both the Sensational Sounds & The Significants) essentially came from Lakewood High School.

Joe Nero was Alvin's partner in building the 'record company'/label' Alesver's Records (at Alvin's home).

Ervin Little had a 3 piece band The Chosen Few ( note; there are/were dozens of bands called Chosen Few), Some of these;George McIlroy bongo's,Johnny Union guitar,...as well as those already listed in the Significants line up above, made up the groups.

Bought this for the flip, One Kindness deserves another, fantastic guitar work, lo-fi recording, which adds to it imo, sort after on the Sweet Soul scene in Califs, so imagine it's getting a bit scarce as it's collected on two fronts

Well, they had several American Football players, who managed to play some games in The NFL.  The only one on that who could remotely be considered an NFL star, was Cornell Green, and even his name wasn't a household word (e.g. he was only known by serious football fans).
