Milwaukee tossed its hat into the kiddie soul ring when Gee brothers Johnnie, Jerome, and Dewitt got together with a few kids from their neighborhood to form Step By Step. “Time After Time” was recorded and released by Jim Kirchstein’s Cuca label. It’s a moody, labyrinthine song that showcases the immense talent of 13-year-old frontman Johnnie Gee. The 45 failed to breakthrough on the national level, but it did catch the ear of Brunswick’s Chicago office. Four years later, the label finally released their follow-up album, We Always Wanted To Be In The Band, a bootless effort by a group that had unfortunately missed its window.
