The Magnetics

Rather a mish mash of a discography this one. There are at least six different groups using the name The Magnetics, so all are listed below.

The Magnetics (From Detroit. Members: Bobby Peterson, Sharon Peterson, Tony Johnson (lead singer), Jackie Perkins and Candi Bell). When Tony Johnson left the group he teamed up with Tyrone Pickens to record as the duo Tony & Tyrone

Allrite 620 - Where Are You / The Train - 1962

The Magnetics (From Detroit. Members:
Gerald Mathis (lead singer), Bobby Peterson (the same singer who was in the Magnetics on Allrite), Elijah Davis, Ernest Newsome & William ‘Pete’ Crawford) This group was in fact The Volumes who were at the time in between contracts.

Bonnie 107374 - Lady In Green / Heart You're Made Of Stone - 1965

The Magnetics (From Detroit. The third Detroit Magnetics are definitely a white sounding girl group, which according to Andy Rix, are not particularly good, which would account for the tracks never gaining an actual release.)  

Hitsville Acetate - Father Time
Histville Acetate - Please Don't Go Away

The Magnetics (From Philadelphia) (The Philadelphia Magnetics have as far as I know only the one release, although other releases on the Ra Sel label exist. John Anderson at Soul Bowl is rumoured to have several unreleased acetates by the group.)

Ra-Sel R7-104 - I Have A Girl / Love And Devotion - 1967

The Magnetics (From Chicago The Chicago Magnetics releases have Lee McKinney as the lead singer, so are all the same group.)  

Sable  102 - When I'm With My Baby / Count The Days - 196?
J-V 2501 - Oh Love / Wasting Time - 1969

Lee McKinney & The Magnetics (Same group from Chicago)  

Sable 104 - I'll Keep Holding On / Jackie Baby - 196?
