One of the Black community family greatest singer, song writer, Marvin Junior, lead singer of the Dells.
When I was in my 30's & 40's and to now, I always thought, "What this world would be without the soothing
and soulful sound of the Dells." I met the group in Compton California, in the 70's. By fate, strangest thing
about our meeting, for whatever reason, I had the Dells first album, "Oh What A Night." and brought it to California with me.
I purchased this album in 1958, in the Bronx at 17 years old. Anyway, a lady wanted to see their show and meet
her cousin, a member of the band. To make a long story short, I went backstage, met the group and got all their
signatures on the first album. Marvin and I stayed in touch until the film, "The Five Heartbeats."
He later changed his number and I lost contact. I saw them again at "Sweet Waters Club" in Manhattan, and
they signed another album. Truly, a void in my life in turn of music. I have played the Dells songs at least once a week for the past 59 years. We truly miss you.

I'm really saddened by the passing of Marvin Junior. The Dells has always been my favorite all time singing group. I was always at their shows when they performed at DAR (Constitution Hall). He will be missed greatly. Heaven has a new great voice.
