   The Devotions consisted of three females, Ragina Wood (lead), Rosemary Green and Bobby Hemmitt. A point of interest, on the official 'a' side of 501 "Same Old Sweet Lovin", released on a gold label with black lettering, there is no copyright stamp simply a box with the letters PEND in it, possibly indicating a rush release.
   Ed Crook "That's Alright" was issued in 1966, the same year as the Devotions, on a yellow label with black lettering, some copies have a black cross over label. The label was owned by Robert Eaton and Benjamin Knight and both discs were licenced from B & B Music. The logo's full address was 11825 Hamilton, Detroit, Michigan 48203.
