All About Love
In the late 1970's, Raoul J. Cita, while still a member of the 'harptones vocal group,' formed a vocal trio and named it 'Feelings,' the name coming from the first song learned by the group. The members of the group were, margaret moore karen starr johnson, and raoul j. cita. After a few months of rehearsing, raoul decided that they were ready to record. Though there were some wonderful selections recorded at that time, they were not released. Due to illness, margaret moore had to leave the group. That put the group on hold for quite some time. Margaret passed a short time later. It was 1990 when raoul and karen asked ava storey to join them in reforming the group. Raoul had coached ava in another group and was aware of her abilities as a strong vocalist, arranger and songwriter. At their first rehearsal, they decided to change the name from 'feelings' to 'klass'. that name was later extended to 'Klass Generation'.after two months of rehearsing, raoul felt that the group was ready to record. From the session came (5) beautiful songs which are included in this album. Karen got married and moved to west Virginia, and shortly after, ave got married also and moved to New Jersey. That put the group on hold indefinitely. In the year 2000 bcj productions was formed by raoul j. cita and billy dawn smith. The two having produced successful groups such as the crest and the harptones have worked together off and on for many years. They wanted to release the work of Klass Generation, but agreed that (5) selection was not enough. Raoul and karen then approved the idea of adding the previous works of feelings' to the session.
