    It was not until 1961 to see a first single from the Chuck-A-Lucks released by Warner Bros with "Pick Up And Deliver" and "Long John", followed a few months later by "Cotton Pickin' Love" and "I’m Hospitalized Over You".   Ken Williams was the lead singer of the classic Northern Soul group, The Superiors, who were a fabulous New York harmony soul group in the 1960's.

    Ronald Tucker, was also in The Superiors. Ken was a very prolific songwriter, producer, and arranger, and often worked with the legendary Van McCoy, and occasionally also recorded songs as a solo singer as well, such as this classic, "Come Back" for Okeh. With the Superiors he recorded a huge classic called "What Would I Do", which seems to have been their only real monster on the scene. Ken also worked a lot with J.R. Bailey, and with Johnny Northern, two late but great geniuses.
