Special Delivery

Profile:
The group was formed in 1972 under the name ACT 1.
Members were Reginald Ross, George Parker and Roger Terry.
Terry Huff joined the group in 1974. They collaborated with producer/songwriter called Rafael Gerald and released one album in 1974 on Spring Records. Then they left Spring Records for Mainstream Records and re-formed with Huff, and changed their name to Special Delivery.
Terry Huff, George Parker, Chester Fortune, and Reginald Ross recorded ballad entitled “I destroyed your love” in 1975 written by Huff.
The song quickly became a staple on quiet storm radio stations and remained on the low end of the R&B charts. Before Mainstream could record a follow-up, the group disbanded over musical, business, and personal differences.
Terry Huff recorded and produced "The Lonely One" with help from Al Johnson.
Johnson (Terry was friend with Al Johnson) and Huff's two brothers (Andy and Jimmy) did the backing vocals. For commercial reasons, Mainstream released it as being by Special Delivery featuring Terry Huff. The song's success caused a demand for an LP, which Huff and Johnson rushed to New York to record.
Then the group recorded album without Terry Huff on Shield Records in 1978. Produced by George Parker.
