The Originals was a successful Motown R&B and soul group during the 1960s and 1970s. After finding modest success in the first half of the decade, they found their biggest success under the guidance of Motown legend Marvin Gaye who co-wrote and produced two of the group's biggest singles, "Baby I'm For Real", and "The Bells". Both songs became seminal to soul music and both songs have since been covered (1990s R&B group After 7 re-recorded "Baby I'm For Real" and made it a hit again in 1992 while another 1990s R&B group Color Me Badd re-recorded "The Bells" for one of their albums). While the group went on to have more modest success in both the soul and disco fields near the end of the decade, it's the songs they did with Gaye that is most memorable.
