Anybody know if Joe Jeffrey is still around?
I heard "My Pledge of Love" in a store the other day, it was out in the summer of '69, but was the only hit for The Joe Jeffrey Group.

One of my favorite songs from 1969! It used to get a lot of play on the radio in Staten Island where I went to day camp.

Joe was from Cleveland but cut some of his LP tracks down south (in Memphis if my memory ain't playin tricks on me).
Strange thing is, I know numerous old Cleveland artists and yet none of them knew anything about Joe when I asked em.

I remember seeing the video for "My Pledge Of Love" when it was a current hit. I don't know where it was filmed, but it was somewhere outside. The song was cut in Cleveland. I have the information, but not with me. I'll post it when I get home later. I remember the arranger was somebody named Al Russ.

He had a followup single-- I think called "Dreamin Till Then".

Joe Jeffrey never did gigs or play the clubs in Cleveland. If he did it was only sporadically. Ditto for the singer who passed last year or so who drove a school bus here whose name escapes me now. Most Cleveland singers and Clevelander couldn't tell you much about Cleveland Robinson either whose Noshibor label was in Cleveland. Obscure artists like Lou Ragland and Bobby Dukes are known here because they played the clubs, especially Lou. People would go to little hole-in-the-wall clubs just to hear Lou Ragland sing.
