In The Middle of the Night. The friction between Lester and Fuqua continued through most of the year, and the latter's increasing control of the group's direction also caused friction with BarnesGravesand Johnsonwho were more or less caught in the middle between the two most identifiable voices in the group. Complicating their strained internal dynamics were the changes in public taste that had taken place since -- they not only couldn't decide who ought to be leading them, or agree on who should sing lead, but also on which direction their music should go in, toward the more pop-oriented sound of the Platterswho were selling large numbers of records to white audiences, or toward the harder sound that seemed to be coming out of some quarters of the Black community, and seemed to be where Black listeners were moving.
Torn by these multiple schisms, the Moonglows' lineup collapsed under circumstances that are still a bit murky, in terms of who decided what and who exited. In latea pair of sides were recorded featuring Fuqua and possibly Johnsonand in earlya new single appeared entitled "Ten Commandments of Love," featuring Fuqua as a speaker. The group's ranks changed quickly -- though he kept Gayewho had sung lead on the group's recording of "Mama Loocie," with him -- and eventually included a young Chuck Barksdalefrom the Dells.
In addition to his work with the new group, Fuqua was featured on solo singles throughoutincluding "Don't Be Afraid of Love," which he co-authored with Berry Gordy, Jr.
Fuqua 's professional association with Gordy had begun when they met, on the latter's visit to Chess to license the early sides of the Miracles ; the two wrote songs together, and eventually Fuqua married Gordy 's sister Gwen. He continued recording for several more years, including some legendary sides with Etta Jamesbut increasingly concentrated on the purely creative rather than the performing side of music.
Having had the group and the LP) name pulled out from under him, Lester went solo on the Chess label for a short time, before giving up performing for a decade.
Johnson passed through gigs backing Jackie Wilson and Brook Benton before joining Motown Records, and passed away in the late '80s. Walton put together a new Moonglows lineup in to cover some of the group's '50s sides, but this effort didn't last long, and Graves and Barnes left the music business, and the original Moonglows were consigned to history, apart from Chess' periodic attempts to continue selling sides left in the vaults.
Chess kept several vestiges of the Moonglows sound alive more profitably when they signed the Dellsand the group's sound could also be heard in the early work of the Four Tops who had also spent time on Chess and the Temptations at Motown.
Lester tried reviving the group name twice, at the beginning and end of the '70s, and even recut "Sincerely" the first time around. That composition remained the jewel in Fuqua 's songbag -- in36 years after the Moonglows cut their version and 35 years after LP) McGuire Sisters ' pop hit, the Forester Sisters ' country rendition of "Sincerely" earned a LP) nomination; that same year, filmmaker Martin Scorsese who is known to take a very deep interest in the music used in his Dont Say Goodbye - The Moonglows - The Best Of The Moonglows Volume 2 (Vinyl used the Moonglows' version of the song in the film Goodfellas.
Between the original and the successful covers, "Sincerely" bids fair to remain a popular song well into the 21st century.
