Hunt's Determination Band front

 An obscure little funky group from Detroit, one with a tight ensemble sound that’s very much in the Earth Wind & Fire mode – complete with a really great horn section, plenty of bass-heavy grooves a the bottom, and a relatively spiritual feel that comes through strongly on the best tracks! There’s a slight jazzy finish to some of the cuts too, a deeper sound that makes Hunt‘s Determination stand out strongly from their contemporaries – even some of the better-known groups of the time. And although indie, there’s a real polish to the whole record – a well-conceived sound that comes off beautifully from start to finish, and which has always made this one a standout for collectors!

Hunt's Determination Band back

 This is an album that many people missed and that’s a shame. For people outside of Flint Michigan, the name Hunt’s Determination Band doesn’t mean anything; but for those of us that are Flintstones and was around back in the mid 70s and early 80s Hunt’s Determination Band kicked. The song “Tonight” was a slow jam that really should have gone national. Before Ready For The World hit it big, they used to open for HDB. Before The Mac Band featuring the McCampbell Brothers, got their hit record “Roses are Red from LA & Babyface, they were in school with the brothers for HDB. Flint Michigan produced some major talent and HDB was major talent. To use a phrase from Grand Funk Railroad; another Great band from Flint, HDB was an American band. These brothers actually played real instruments and could sing. These brothers were performers. I looked for this album for 30 years and now I have it. I can still see Hunts driving around Flint in the big Step Van with their name written on the side, just seeing the van was enough for you to start groovin (Terry L. Williams).
