I’ve always wondered why The Exciters didn’t enjoy greater commercial successes given their talents. Brenda Reid had an amazing voice – tough, but highly commercial and was more than the equal to scores of contemporaries who enjoyed far more commercial recognition and success. How do you explain something like that ? 1968 found the group signed to their fifth label in six years (which may have at least partially explained the lack of greater commercial success).
