The Volumes: I Love You - Golden Classics Vinyl LP (Cut-Out)

(1990/Collectables) 10 tracks - rare Doo Wop Vinyl LP - small hole in corner

Big Noise From “Volumes” Things are looking big in the record world for a Detroit group known as “The Volumes.” Composed of five young men between the ages of 19 and 21, the singing Volumes has been working for over a year in preparation for the big break.


Members of the Volumes, Joe Travillion, Elijah Davis, Ernest Neusom . and Edward Union, were active in music at Central high school. Ernest and Elijah were members of Central’s honor choir. After graduation, the ' young men were joined by Larry Wright, a graduate of Chadsey, and they worked many hours to perfect their harmony.


In September, 1961, they were discovered by the Chex Recording company and shortly afterwards cut their first recording “ I Love You.” Released in February, the record has sold over 20,000 copies in Detroit. Their appearance at record hops for disc jockeys created wild hysteria among local teenagers in Detroit and Canada.

The Volumes

I Love You

Motown didn't have every talented vocal group in Detroit locked up. Case in point: The Volumes, who had their biggest success their first time out with I Love You for Willie Ewing's local Chex label. Consisting of lead Eddie Union, tenors Lawrence 'Elijah' Davis and Larry Wright, baritone Joe Truvillion, and bass Ernest Newson (listed as writer of I Love You with Ewing, though Union claims he actually penned it), they cut the effervescent number in a garage with future Motown producer Norman Whitfield on tambourine and producer Richard 'Popcorn' Wylie banging on a suitcase rather than a drum kit. If The Volumes could make a record like this under those circumstances, they had to be good.

Four of The Volumes attended Detroit's Central High School, while Larry went to Chadsey High. They formed the group in 1960, their name inspired by one member asking another to turn up the volume on a stereo.  While appearing north of the border in Windsor in '61, Ewing caught their act, signed them to Chex, and pressed up the song that catapulted them up to #22 pop in the spring of '62 (some pressings listed their name with an odd apostrophe: Volume's). The gentle ballad Dreams resided on the flip. They originally intended I Love You as the B-side, but Richard Street's Distants beat them to their projected plug side, Answer Me.

Their next Chex outing, Come Back Into My Heart, sounded quite a bit like I Love You with Ernest's burbling bass again setting the tempo (this time Lamont Dozier played drums). The Volumes split with Ewing and took up with producers Harry Balk and Irving Micahnik, who supervised their 45s on Jubilee, Old Town and Lou Guarino's American Arts label, where their Duke Browner-penned soul outing Gotta Give Her Love bubbled under in 1964 with instrumental backing by The Royaltones.

Balk produced their '65 outing I Got Love for Twirl (a Balk/Micahnik enterprise). Gerald Mathis replaced Union in the lead role on their '66 Impact 45 The Trouble I've Seen for Balk before giving way to Jimmy Burger for three singles on another Balk-headed enterprise, Inferno Records (the third, Ain't That Lovin' You, was distributed by Motown). After a 1970 single for Ollie McLaughlin's Karen logo, The Volumes packed it in when Ernest joined The Fantastic Four. Newson died in 1990.
