Original group members were; William and Wilbert Hart, Frederick Johnson, Ritchie Daniels, and Randy Cain. Their first recording was for Moon Shot in 1967. Daniels was drafted and left for the service in 1968. Johnson left the group just before the groups first release. At Cameo, producer Stan Watson introduced them to producer Thom Bell, then working with Chubby Checker. The group's first album, released on Watson's own Philly Groove record label, featured the smash hit "La-La (Means I Love You)" in 1968. Four more Bell-produced albums appeared in the next few years: The Sexy Sound of Soul, The Delfonics Super Hits, The Delfonics and Tell Me This Is a Dream. Among the Delfonics' popular hits were the Grammy-winning "Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time)", "(For The Love) I Gave To You", "Ready or Not Here I Come (Can't Hide from Love)", and "Hey Love". Prior to the release of "La-La (Means I Love You)", they had a hit with "He Don't Really Love You" on the small Moonshot record label in 1966.
