The Majestees entered the studio in the summer of 1966, a shade greener than a 7-Up bottle. The high school variety show celebrities of Highland Park, Michigan recorded "Take Back All Those Things," the band's first original, and "Let Her Go," a sugary dream created by Brothers of Soul's Fred Bridges and Robert Eaton during their brief residency at Inkster, Michigan's Mutt concern. The record was, like every other Mutt-labeled 45, doomed upon release, receiving paltry airplay and an egregious typographical miscrediting: "Majjestee's". The Vietnam draft would tear The Majestees apart in 1968, and give band member Angelo Bond fodder for his co-penned hit "Bring the Boys Home" as rendered by Freda Payne in 1971.
