Ain’t No Big Thing But It’s Growing / Coming Together - New Birth (The)

Ain’t No Big Thing But It’s Growing / Coming Together

New Birth were brought together by Motown writers and producers Vernon Bullock and Harvey Fuqua, plus music industry veteran Tony


The New Birth name was an umbrella for all manner of artists. In 1970 the pair moved from Detroit to Louisville and signed up The Nite-Liters (who would have one or two hits of their own), The Gentlemen And I, The Mint Juleps and Duet. The logic was that these four acts would tour together, and then as a show finale, all of them would be onstage performing as New Birth. This quickly developed into a band featuring The Nite-Liters (who had eight members), The Mint Juleps (featuring four women), plus The Now Sound (four men) and one additional singer, namely Allen Frey. A deal was done with RCA Records, and the band released a self-titled album in 1971. The Mint Juleps were dropped from the project and at this time,

New Birth actually had 12 members and it was this line-up that recorded the 1972 album 'Ain't No Big Thing But It's Growing'.

The arrival of Ann Bogan (previously from the hit group Marvelettes) finally helped to shape the band's sound.1972's 'Coming Together' (which was to be Bogan's only album with New Birth); was a far more cohesive and decisive release reaching number 40 on the R&B charts.
