Reflections Groups

Reflections (Minneapolis) (Howie Butler & The) – Treasure Of Love/ Have A Good Time, ’60 (Gaity 6017)



Reflections (Queens)

– I Really Must Know/ Maybe Tomorrow, ’61 (Crossroads 401)

– Rocket To The Moon/ Because Of You, ’62 (Crossroads 402)



previously as Aristocats (Indianapolis) – Big Girls Don’t Cry, Connie-O, Just Two Kinds Of People, ’62 (Recorded in Indianapolis as part of an audition tape for the TV show ‘Shindig.’)


Reflections (Indianapolis) backing Mona Thomas – There He Goes/ Just In Between, ’63 (Jan Hutchens Studio-unreleased & USA 776, ’64) (Distribution and Label info corrections welcome.)


Reflections (Indianapolis) – Don’t Worry Baby/ Rag Doll, ’63 (Unreleased-Recorded for Jan Hutchens studio)

(Group confirmation is needed.)  (Read that the group became the Reflections to help set up the studio for Jan Hutchens Indy music.)


Reflections (Indianapolis) – (I Remember) In The Still Of The Night/ Tic Toc, ’63 (Tigre 602)

(Charted regionally, but the masters were ‘lost’ before national distribution.  Some issues have Tic Toc as the A-side.  Many sources still miscredit these titles as being done by the five-man Detroit group of Romeo & Juliet fame.)


Reflections (Indianapolis) renamed as The Illusions (Indianapolis) – In The Beginning/ Maybe (I Just May Be Wrong), ’64 (Laurie 3245)


Gms for the Artisocats, Reflections and Illusions: Dave Dunn (Lead), Chuck Tunnah (Bass), Pat Baldwin and Larry Dunlap.)

I am uncertain of the personnel when the group(s) became Stark Naked And The Car Thieves in California.

For the sake of doowop, brings The Aristocats (Indianapolis) to light and explains why the Reflections and Illusions are the same group.



Reflections (Miami Florida) – I Need Your Love/ You Don’t Love Me, ’68 (Went 001)

as The Swinging Reflections – I Need Your Love/ You Don’t Love Me, ’68 (Went 001)

According to a source, Went 001 was withdrawn because of other ‘Reflections’ groups and reissued on the silver Went label as the Swinging Reflections.  Scans found for all releases.)
