The Messengers - 1969 US

Originally from Milwaukee, they cut Midnight Hour/Hard Hard Year (U.S.A. 866) at Chicago's U.S.A. Studios in 1967. Almost immediately afterwards they signed to Motown records, becoming the first white group to do so.The Messengers had a lean spell at Motown but eventually re-emerged with further recordings on its Rare Earth label.
