Soul quintet, had two albums scheduled for release, one on MoWest (MW 105) in early/mid 1972, tentatively entitled "Devastating Affair Mountain", and then a second album, titled "The Devastating Affair", on Motown (M-781) in September/October 1973. Sadly, both albums were cancelled.

Performed backing vocals on Diana & Marvin's "You're A Special Part Of Me" and, indeed, the group cut the original version of this tune which three male members of this ensemble wrote.
