Executive Suite was the Philly group that Daryl Hall contributed vocals to on their first single ("Christine," for Jubilee Records) in 1970. The members were Vincent Unto, Henry Tuten, William Tyler, and Charles Conyers. Their next release, a smooth, Philly ballad named "I'm a Winner Now" from 1972, remains the jewel of their career. Babylon Records picked it up for national distribution in 1973, but the move didn't help much as the record never expanded beyond the Philly/New York area.

A 1974 release, "When the Fuel Runs Out," embraced disco, Philly style, and achieved some club notoriety. Two more singles "Your Love Is Paradise" and "You Believed in Me," suffered from indifferent promotion. Polydor released an LP, Executive Suite 1, in 1974 that contains the North Bay singles, produced at Sigma Sound Studios by an assortment of Philly's finest: Norman Harris, Phil Hurtt and Bunny Sigler. They released one final single "Hey Pearl" on United Artists but the results didn't change. Unto and Tyler previously sang with the Millionaires on Castle Records; Tyler also sang with the Jewels, and Conyer with the Lovenotes.

Como lo prometido es deuda, aquí está el album de Executive Suite, sacado en Polydor alrededor del 1974. Una rareza donde las hayan sin duda en el que podreis encontrar, ademas de su mayor exito "When The Fuel Runs Out", su version instrumental o el tambien corte philly-disco "You Believed In Me". La cara B, contiene 2 excelentes baladas y el increiblemente extraño corte "You Got It": atentos a su Parte 2. A disfrutar!

When The Fuel Runs Out was also recorded by the Ambitions. The exact same music backing track was used for both groups, and the Ambitions 45 also has the instrumental on the B side.

You Believed In Me was an early Patrick Adams production, and is on a CD compilation of his work.
