NS538 The Trends [1967] - Thanks For A Little Loving [ABC 10993]

b/w: I Never Know How Good I Have It
Format: 45
Label: ABC
Cat No: 10993
Year: 1967
Value: $300-$800

Played at Stafford around 1985 covered up as Freddie Gorman.  This is a great mid-tempo typical 60s (Motownesque) dancer.

The Trends were from Chicago's west side and consisted of Eddie Dunn, Emmett Garner Jr., Ralph O'Neill and Jerome Johnson.

They cut 2 45s on Smash in 1964 before moving to ABC where they released 7 45s between 1965-68.  Unfortunately they never had a national hit.

Emmett Garner Jr. released a solo single Maxell in 1970.

Both sides of their follow up to the featured 45 i.e. Soul Clap / Big Parade is still available over at Derek's Daily 45s
