Little is known about the origins of The Sensations.
Believed by some to be from Michigan, believed by others to be from Ohio, where they recorded with short lived and constantly struggling label, Way Out Records. The Sensations were the label's lead act and cut more sides than any other artists on the roster. 12 sides total between 1966 and 1969, displaying a pretty wonderful array of R&B and Motown(ish) Soul despite such minimal output. I get a real Four Tops feel from this group and that's a good thing in my books. If they had had a more competent label backing them, I suspect they would have soared to great heights instead of fading into obscurity. I probably never would have heard of the Sensations if not for the Numero Groups 'Eccentric Soul Series' which makes 2/3's of their material available and I was able to find the remaining 4 sides to complete this great little collection.
This one's super short but super sweet, enjoy!
