The Disco-infused Soul sound of The Escorts came from humble beginnings. Formed in Rahway State Prison in New Jersey in 1970, The Escorts rode songs like “Make Me Over” and “Heart of Gold” and charting albums like All We Need Is Another Chance and Three Down, Four To Go to post-prison success. Despite some early protesting from the prison warden, producer George Kerr was allowed to record The Escorts before early members started getting released from prison in 1974 and the group gained both a following and notoriety in the Soul and Disco scenes. Eventually, the band linked up with legendary session drummer Herschel Dwellingham, who by the late 70s had become known as both a world-class producer, songwriter and savvy executive, releasing material under both Helva Records and My Record. Both of these labels are now proudly represented by Fervor Records.
