Brenda & the Tabulations were an R&B group from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, originally composed of Brenda Payton, Eddie Jackson, Maurice Coates and Jerry Jones. The group changed its line-up around 1971, with two female backing singers brought in to support Brenda. The group had a series of hits in the late 60s and early 70s, mainly in the USA soul charts. However, two were big US pop hits, the self-penned Dry Your Eyes and later Right On The Tip Of My Tongue, the latter written and produced by Van McCoy.
They released three albums, Dry Your Eyes (1967), Brenda and the Tabulations (1970) and I Keep Coming Back for More (1977). Brenda Payton died in 1992
