Custom produced by Richmond sound stages
2314 W. Cary Street Richmond, Virginia

The Immortals began in the fall of 1966 at York Academy in Shacklefords, VA. , Jack Wray (lead guitar), Jack Lawson (bass guitar & lead vocals), Richard Cowles (drums), and Bruce Dawson (rhythm guitar) came together as a rock group not unlike millions of other teenage boys after the British Invasion in 1964.

They were ages 13-15 as they began this musical relationship that has spanned more than forty-five years

"Your Went Your Way” was recorded in December, 1967 at Richmond Sound Stages.  The production director and engineer's name there from 1965-1973 was Frank Brooks.  He also had a Jazz radio program on AM radio in Richmond during the 60s.  Although we’re not positive, he was more than likely the guy who engineered The Immortals record.  He was also probably the guy who engineered such contemporary efforts as  Why Did You Leave Me by The Klansmen and Lord I Need You  by Ray (Pittman) & the Soul Beats.
