HEAVEN'S GIFT * THE STEELERS * CRASH 8642 * USA

The group a five piece male vocal outfit consisting of  three brothers and two friends: Wes Wells lead vocals, Alonzo Wells aka “Kool”, George Wells, Frank Allen and Leonard Truss, to be joined later by Lorenzo “Go Go” Johnson, they started recording in 1965 with Crying Bitter Tears.
