The Stereos

Not merely was Steubenville, OH, Dean Martin’s stomping grounds, the town situated around the Ohio River also spawned the Stereos, a quintet comprising Bruce Robinson (business lead), Nathaniel Hicks (first tenor), Ronnie Collins (bass), Sam Profit (second tenor), and George Otis (baritone). The group’s origins began within the middle-’50s when Robinson and Collins created the Buckeyes (Ohio’s nickname) who released two singles on Cincinnati’s Deluxe Information in 1957: “Since I Fell for you personally” b/w “Become Just You” and “Dottie Baby” b/w “Begging You, Make sure you.” The Stereos first documented in 1959 with Leroy Swearingen (first tenor and ex-Buckeye) becoming a member of Robinson, Collins, Income, and Otis for his or her Gibraltar debut, “A Like for Just You” b/w “Sweetpea’s in Like.” Its failing triggered Swearingen to keep and be changed by Hicks. The modified lineup experienced three singles on Cub Information from 1961-1962, with ex-member Swearingen penning their most effective record “I MUST SAY I Like You” (15 R&B/29 pop); two follow-ups floundered. Two 1962 Robins Nest’s singles: “My Heart” and “Don’t Cry Darling” also didn’t perform diddly. A GLOBAL Artists’ solitary “Mumbling Term” surfaced in 1963, trailed by “Existence” because the Sterios (sic) on Ideal Information (1964) and “DON’T ALLOW It Eventually You” in 1965 for Val 2 Information. Good records, however the Stereos had been a changeover group with ingrained doo-wop origins and never completely forsake the sound for full-blown ’60s harmonies, but Robinson’s gospel-inspired prospects produced them interesting. They resurfaced on Hyde Information in 1967 like a self-contained clothing adding Stanley Dark brown, Solomon Huffman, Don Walters, and Ronnie Parris. Income and Otis remaining. The revamped Stereos produced enough sound with “Stereo system Freeze Parts 1 & 2” that Cadet Information plucked it for mass distribution; but “I CANNOT Prevent These Tears” b/w “PERSONALLY I THINK Soul A’Coming” taken up lame in 1968; another Cadet one, “Your Storage,” under no circumstances got began, forcing long lasting disbandment and the finish from the Stereo’s run after for your elusive royalty verify.
