Frankie Beverly Background
When he was only a child, Frankie Beverly began singing gospel music at his church in his hometown of Philadelphia.
In his formative teen years, he established The Blenders - an a cappella, doo-wop band inspired by bands of the era (The Moonglows, The Del Vikings and The Dells). The Blenders' tenure was short-term but it didn't take long for him to form another act, The Butlers. The Butlers turned out to be the first group he ever recorded with, which was in 1963.
The Butlers didn't fit the mold of "Philly Sound," so Beverly learned to play the keyboard and rhythm guitar and started Raw Soul along with Sam Porter, McKinley Williams and Roame Lowry. Although they were not hurting for gigs around the City of Brotherly Love, Beverly believed that California offered more promise. In 1971, he moved to the San Francisco/Oakland area. Three more members joined the Raw Soul lineup, billing it as a funk band.
The single, Open up Your Heart, the band's debut track was released by Eldorado Records. Eventually, two other singles were released on Gregor Records, which similar to the Eldorado single, covered solving the world's problems, eliminating social injustices and ending prejudice and inequality.
The tune, Color Blind, was sprinkled with funk horns, characteristic of the '70s. It posed the question, "What color is harmony?"
Raw Soul became very well-known regionally but never quite broke through the national mainstream.
The iconic Marvin Gaye gave the group a chance when he enlisted Raw Soul to support him on a tour with their original material. Shortly after their tour with Gaye, the group inked a deal with Capitol Records. The Raw Soul concept was scrapped and Beverly started up Maze. He kept the core members and brought in new talents aboard to complete his lineup.
After years of trying to pierce the mainstream music scene, Beverly was unloading singles by the truckload. Beverly skimmed the best elements from Raw Soul and the Butlers and injected them into Maze. His recipe for success worked!
