You have the personnel incorrect. Larry Nestor was a songwriter, never was in the group. Lover's Reunion group was Art Mitcham, his brother Harvey Mitcham, James Dyson, Leroy “Sam” Dandridge, and lastly a girl, Gwendolyn Bradshaw.
The Witch group was Gwen Bradshaw, Manual Seal, Art Mitcham, Willie Weems, David Green, Nate Pendleton, LeRoy Dandridge
The Vee Jay group was Leroy Dandridge, Nate Pendleton, Manual Seal, and Willie Weens (in the photo), but probably David Green (bass) as well.
Information based on interviews by Bob Abrahamian with Art Mitcham and Nate Pendleton, and Robert Pruter's interview with Nate Pendleton.
