Tag Archives: Five Special
Formed 1978 in Detroit, Michigan, U.S.A.
Five Special comprised of:
Steve Boyd and Mike Petillo
This Detroit vocal group included lead singer Bryan Banks, the brother of the Dramatics’ Ron Banks.
They got off to a promising start in 1979, as their Elektra single ‘Why Leave Us Alone’ made it to number nine on the R & B charts.
It was their lone big hit.
Two other singles just made the R & B Top 30, and they disbanded after the release of their second album ‘Special Edition’.
The album was produced by Ron Banks, Bryan’s brother and contained a track penned by the late Garry Glenn entitled ‘Why Not Be Mine For A While’.
Wayne Henderson worked on the project in a role as Executive Producer.
