US soul group from Los Angeles, CA. The Los Angeles-based Exits made only four singles -- three on Gemini and one on Kapp Records (really three, their debut came out twice) -- but two of them, "Under the Streetlamp" and "Another Sundown in Watts," feature some of the '60s finest soul group harmony. Their sound married late-'50s doo wop with mid-'60s soul and the material was a teary-compound of aspiration and hope and despair and hopelessness. They recorded their first song and biggest hit nameless and the producer came up with their name as James Conwell (lead), Godey Colbert, Esko Wallace, Louis Hendricks, and Charles Colbert were leaving the studio under the gleaming exit sign over the door. A new name was in order as they had recorded "Love Can't Be Modernized" b/w "There's That Mountain" in early 1967 as the The Trips
for Soundsville Records.
