The Notations were an R & B vocal group from Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A.

The original group members were Clifford Curry, LaSalle Matthews, Bobby Thomas and Jimmy Stroud (replaced by Walter Jones in 1973).

The Notations featured an optimistic upbeat sound and made an impact during the 70's.

The group was formed in the late 60's and recorded unsuccessfully for a few local labels before achieving a hit nationally on the Twinight label with 'I'm Still Here' (number 26 R & B).

The Notations

They were signed by Curtom Records in 1975 to the company's Gemigo subsidiary and had hits with 'It Only Hurts For A Little While' (number 27 R & B) and 'It's Alright (This Feeling)' (number 42 R & B).

The Notations left Curtom in 1977, and three of the members (Curry, Matthews and Thomas) made one more single, 'Judy Blue Eyes', for Mercury, before breaking up in 1978.

In the U.K. the group will be best remembered for the 1975 single 'Super People' on Gemigo Records.
