Additional information from the group manager
Actually this song was recorded more like 1973. We were the “Donations” since the group was founded in 1965 in the Carver Park Homes in Cleveland Ohio. During the time this song was recorded, rock music had become fairly popular, so much so that R&B groups began to change their sound to accommodate the social change. This was driven primarily by the Temptations with ‘Cloud 9’ This sound became known as psychedelic.
At the time we were struggling to stay a “working group”. A combination of an accident to Sherman Satchel in the winter of 1969 and the riots of Hough and Glenville made it difficult for us to work steadily but we decided to take the next step and begin recording.
Our first record was a ‘cover’ of the Temptations hit ‘Ain’t Too Proud to Beg’ due in an arrangement reminiscent of Marvin Gaye’s version of “Heard it Through the Grapevine’. (The ‘B’ side was our rendition of the classic standard ‘Summer Time’).
One of the things which made the Donations (“World War lll” – “The Donation to World War lll”) so dynamic was besides being the first non-du-wop local (Cleveland) group of our era we tended to do our own arrangements of songs. (We still have the best rendition of the jazz/pop classic ‘September Song’ I have ever heard anyone do).
Then in 1972 (or there about) we recorded ‘I’m Gonna Treat You Good” as the Donations, followed the next year (or so) by “When the Bomb Fall (We All Going Together)” recorded as World War lll.
This name change was ultimately a mistake in my opinion and we weren’t too comfortable with it back then since we finally compromised on ‘The Donation to World War lll” in an attempt to enter the psychedelic era while keeping our original heritage and name.
So there’s a little history for anyone interested. We were and still are Cleveland’s own Wrecking Crew the fabulous, the remarkable, the original “Donations”.
The Donations – Walter Johnson, Duane Gardner, Sherman Satchel and Eddie ‘BB’ Brown – The Managers were James Page, Travis Jones and Lloyd Tucker.
