The Nite-Liters’ debut album reissued on paint-splash vinyl



The Nite-Liters were formed by the great Harvey Fuqua in the early 1960s in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. As a member of the doo-wop group the Moonglows, Fuqua scored a hit with his monster tune “Sincerely” in 1954. He went on to produce acts at Motown, including Tammi Terrell and Marvin Gaye. After leaving Motown, he secured a production deal with RCA, where he brought back his old instrumental band the Nite-Liters and produced their 1970 eponymous debut album, which has recently been reissued by Nature Sounds. With partner Vernon Bullock, Fuqua combined two other bands with the Nite-Liters to create the mega-group the New Birth. The Nite-Liters would record and release five albums for RCA, and the New Birth eight.
