The Futures

David Nathan, Blues & Soul, April 1975

"TO BE a moon, not just a star" is the collective ambition of five, talented young guys from the City of Brotherly Love. Known as The Futures, James King, Kenny Crew, Harry McGilkerry, Frank Washington and Jon King are set on the right road and the recent release of their first album on Buddah Records – Castles In The Sky – seems to herald the arrival of a fine team of together brothers.
