Note: The Sharpees on One-Derful 4835 ("Do The 45" / "Make Up Your Mind", originally issued in 1965, reissued on Knockout 4 in the 1970's-80's) feature Herbert Reeves [lead vcls on a-side], Benny Sharp, Horise O'Toole & Vernon Guy [lead vcls on b-side]. Soon after this single O'Toole was replaced by Stacy Johnson due to medical reasons. According to www.soulfulkindamusic.net/sharpees.htm: the group stayed together while various members were working as solo artists on the road or in the studio, until 1972 when Herbert Reeves was shot and killed. The newly formed Sharpees in 1981 consisted of Vernon Guy, Stacy Johnson, Bobby Williams and Paul Grady.
