Vernon Burch was considered a child prodigy of sorts when he made his performance debut with the Delfonics as a teenager.

Later he moved on to join the reconstituted Bar Kays on their early 70s albums, then bolted for a solo career after their contract with Stax ran out. He did not receive the fame his former band mates would later experience, but the guitarist recorded for United Artists, Columbia and Chocolate City during a six-year period the produced the minor hits "Frame of Mind" and "Give It To Me." Today his reputation is loftier than the chart position of his work, proving again that sales are
no indicator of quality.
