The club owner decided to invest in us and we recorded a whole album of songs.
You know, it was like anyone that could sing was featured in a Sunday program!
We slept in the bus and we had a hard time getting gigs.
I remember, one night we met this girl and she loved our music.
We did records for local labels between 19: Guyden, Liberty Bell (which was owned by Leon Fisher, who became my mentor in this business), Fairmount, Parkway, and Gamble, which was the first label that (legendary producer) Kenny Gamble started." Frankie's records with The Butlers were much in the traditional of vocal harmony groups but he says that listening to Sly & The Family Stone in the late '60s changed his whole musical direction.
"Sly was like a 'dressed up' James Brown to me," Frankie reflects. Before the Family Stone, black groups did doo-wop or they were a band with a front man.
