Why is The Martineques on ME-O listed on a Chicago collection?  That was Detroit's Martiniques recorded by Romeo Taylor either totally in Detroit, or partly in Detroit and finished in L.A.  One of the group members' sons claims it was recorded totally in Detroit.  But it was released on an L.A. label.  I never heard of any Chicago connection, even a slight or tenuous one.  And Walter and The Admirations is spelt incorrectly.  It should read: "Admerations".  And, as I recall, that was NOT a typo.  They named the group that way to be "different".

Must have slipped it in the wrong folder, I have loads of these going so easy done, as for the Admerations why would the group change there name just to be different as it is the same line up as the Admirations definitly a typo.

I'm pretty sure I read that one of the group members said that in an interview.  Maybe it was just a false rumour?

I think Ted Daniels had (had) an ADMIRations group, so changed it to ADMERations

Thanks.  I seem to recall that one of the group members mentioned that they changed it in their interview with Bob A.  I'll have to go back and listen to it again.

Yes!  My senile old memory DIDN'T fail me THIS time!   Walter and his new Admerations stated on their Sitting In The Park interview with Bob Abrahamian that the first Admirations group, with One-derful Records, kicked Walter out of their group.  Ted Daniel, their manager wanted to continue managing Walter, who wanted to form a new Admirations group.  Daniel told him that if he insisted upon calling his new group, "The Admirations", he'd have to change its spelling, for legal reasons.  So, they changed it to "AdmErations".  It was ironic, because The old Admirations broke up only a few months after La Cindy's "Man Oh Man" came out.  So a second La Cindy release could use the Walter and The "Admirations" spelling.

The first (One-derful) Admirations were from Walter's Cabrini-Green housing project on The Near North Side (from where Curtis Mayfield, Jerry & Billy Butler, Major Lance, Otis Leavill, and VJ's (Chicago's) Falcons came.  Whereas, Walter's 2nd Admirations/Admerations group came from The South Side, between 56th and 61st Streets, and they attended Tilden High School.  Everyone but Walter lived within about 5-6 blocks of my father's store.  What a small World!  I probably walked past them several times!  They were called The Four Gents before they were joined by Walter.

In addition to Walter Smith, they consisted of Cliff Frazier, Brad, Keith, and David Donaldson.
