Young Hearts

The Younghearts line-up changed over the years, however the high standard of their musical output endured throughout the late Sixties and Seventies.

The Younghearts were, originally formed at Dorsey High School in Los Angeles in 1961, by Bobby Sanders and Charles Ingersoll.

Dorsey High School was attended at the same time by the Beach Boys, Marilyn McCoo and the late Ron Townson of the Fifth Dimension.

Bobby and Charles initially formed the group under the name of the Extreems, whose ranks included Maurice Clark, Robert Rozel alongside Charles and Bobby making up the foursome.

The groups first recording was for the Dorsey imprint and was entitled ‘The Bells’.

‘The Bells’ made the top ten on the R & B chart.

The groups first record was a song entitled ‘A Little Togetherness’, which made the Top Ten on the R & B charts


A follow up album entitled ‘Sweet Soul Shakin’ was released in 1968 for the Minit label.

The ‘Sweet Soul Shakin’ album included the songs ‘I’ve Got Love For My Baby’, ‘Girls,Girls,Girls’, ‘Sweet Soul Shakin’, ‘Oh, I’ll Never Be The Same’ and ‘Misty’ all of which made the number one slot or the top 5 on the R & B charts at various times between 1968 and 1970.

During that time The Younghearts toured with several famous Soul Artists of that time, including The Temptations, The Dells, The Delfonics, The Moments, The Whispers, The Miracles and The Supremes.

The group also performed with the late Barry White, The Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, Sonny & Cher, Gladys Night and Sammy Davis Jr amongst others.



Not as good as the debut, but a nice mid-career collection that you can still find on the cheap.
