Two years before Bill Jacocks became an anchor at Cleveland's WEWS-TV in 1975, he made a Hands On A Golden Key, a television documentary about students working to alleviate racial strife in schools. For his film, Jacocks envisioned an original score, but the producers at NBC station WKYC offered no music budget. Deciding to pay out-of-pocket, Jacocks found inspiration in his neighbor's garage, where Robert Goodson Jr., Terry Milliner, Raymond "Raymo" Travis, Joe Jenkins, and Raymond Bruton were rehearsing as Stone Creations. Jacocks brought the young group to Arnie Rosenberg's Agency Recording in 1973 to track the score, as well as a 45, released on Jacock's own Fly-By-Nite imprint. The single helped Stone Creations secure gigs, culminating in the Spinners inviting them to Detroit for a residency at the Sahara Supper Club. Feeling like they were on the cusp of fame, the Creations were shocked one night in 1976 to find the Sahara up in flames, incinerating their instruments and torching their career, their music dreams obliterated into ash.
