The Dynamics

Recommended Posts

Guest vinylvixen

Doing a bit of fact finding. Were the Dynamics who recorded 'Misery' & 'I wanna know' on Big Top the same Dynamics who recorded 'Yes I Love You' on Tip Top and 'You make me feel so good' on RCA? Thanks in advance. Jo :thumbup:

Hi Jo

Think you'll find Big Top & RCA group are the same outfit. Big Top being early, about 63/64, RCA later.

Top Ten different group.

Cheers Sue :thumbup: I was also wondering if there was a 'definative' CD collection with their Big Top & RCA material. Perhaps Tony Rounce would have some idea. Jo

Doh - I meant Top Ten not Tip Top....that sounds like a 7Ts powdered cream topping laugh.gif

Thanks for the group line-ups thumbsup.gif I don't know any of their Cotillion sides. Any recommendations? Did they record on any other labels other than Big Top, RCA and Cotillion?? Ta very much. Jo

Hello Jo there's a Dynamics album titled " What a shame " which is highly rated by 70's fans , also check out " We found love " and " We can make it if we try " on Columbia , which are both superb .Best ,Eddie

Yes, there was an early group line up that recorded on Dynamics & Reprise, then in later years (70's) on the Black Gold label that Nordic Soul mentions.

Top Ten group is really The Dramatics . . . I think!!

"Top Ten group is really The Dramatics . . . I think!!"

You think right, I think.

Same guys who did "Bingo" on Wingate, credited to both The Dramatics and Dynamics.

RECORDED ON COTTILIION ,BRAINSTORM,DOUGLAS,DYNA ,WINGATE,SAA-CE ALSO,THINK THE SEVENTIES OUTFIT HAD A DIFFERNT LINE UP MIGHT BE WRONG.

The Dynamics on Dyna is an unrelated group from the Carolinas I think.

Just to confuse things even more, I thought the group on "Saa Ce" were a Seattle based group who had other discs on "Seafair Bolo" & "Jerden". I think they even put out an album, and backed "Jimmy Hanna" as well? What about the various Dynamics on "Cuca 1081" , "Decca 31046", "Liberty 55628 ",Herald 569" & "USA 769". Looks like a pretty popular name for a group back in the day!

The dynamics with zerben hicks etc were managed by a guy called TED WHITE he was married to ARETHA FRANKLIN apparently.All the line up were from Detroit but the percussion section were all Memphis stalwards including Reggie Young,Bobby Emmons and Bobby Wood,most of their later stuff was recorded in Memphis.

These are both quite good Jo:

DYNAMICSCOTILLION44004AIN'T NO SUN / MURDER IN THE FIRST DEGREE

DYNAMICSCOTILLION44038AIN'T NO LOVE AT ALL / WHAT WOULD I DO

The latter is my personal favourite of their Cotillion sides plus there's this released in the UK and Sweden(amongst other countries):

The Zerben Hicks led Dynamics may feature in the September Issue of There's That Beat! The group are on something of a revival at the moment with a CD release of lots of their hits from over the years and a new management/label in place.

Ok, lets see if I'm getting it:

The "Detroit" Dramatics who recorded on WIngate and Sport were aka Dynamics but have nothing to do with the "NYC" Dynamics on Big Top and RCA????

Jo,

The RCA and Big Top groups are the same. The CD is in the promo stage at the moment and I can tell you it's the dogs nads as it comes in a cardboard vintage looking sleeve. The mag may well feature the group and all it's tentacles within the Detroit music scene, in the next issue. There are lots of interesting overlaps with the group that will ceratainly surprise a few people. I'll ask Jason to send me a pic of the CD and post it up here on it's release.

Regards,

Dave
