Disco Dynamite! Non-Stop Hits For Dancing

Detroit R&B and soul group The Fantastic Four were formed in 1965. "Sweet" James Epps, Ralph and Joseph Pruitt, and Wallace Childs were the original members. Childs and Ralph Pruitt later departed, and were replaced by Cleveland Horne and Ernest Newsome. Their first single on Ric-Tic, "The Whole World Is a Stage," was their lone huge hit, peaking at number 6 on the R&B charts in 1967. Their next superb release, "You Gave Me Something (And Everything's Alright)," reached number 12 that same year. Before the Motown takeover of Ric-Tic, The Fantastic Four were the label's biggest-selling act, outselling Edwin Starr.

They enjoyed renewed appeal during the disco era with some singles on Westbound that were moderately successful, among them "Alvin Stone (The Birth & Death of a Gangster)" and "I Got to Have Your Love." Dennis Coffey produced "B.Y.O.F. (Bring Your Own Funk)" in 1979, but didn't have much luck with it. The Fantastic Four have remained active, and released "Working on a Building of Love" in 1990 for Britain's Motorcity label. In 2000, however, the Fantastic Four lost one of its long-time members, Cleveland Horne when he suffered a heart attack and died on April 13, 2000 (source: Allmusic.com). Enjoy the Fantastic Four and other non-stop hits for dancing!
