Ones - You Havent Seen My Love (Fenton 2514-A)

Last updated on May 26, 2004.

Probably the hottest rock & roll band to ever come out of Lansing in the late 60's. Danny Hernandez was one of the very best.

Played in ta top group in Rochester NY during the early 80's. I brought this tune to their attention as we had a hammond b-3. The song really shows off the b-3. Great song. Wish I could find a CD or album that has it on it. I have a nt so good 45 of it, and a good mp3.

Danny Hernandez was my grandpa and in my mind he is the best artist in the history of Motown. When he died in 2000 he had a new band called Strong Hold. He was awsome on that album as well. He is one of the greats and always will be.

I first heard "You Haven't Seen My Love" in Anchorage Alaska probably in 1968 and absolutely loved it--couldn't believe it never made the charts. When I finally tracked down a copy of the 45 30 years later, I was astonished to see that ol' familiar Motown label. Neither Gerri
Hirshey nor Don Waller mention the group or the song in their books, so I've always considered The Ones to be the greatest Motown act (just based on that one spectacular song) that no one ever heard of. Just finding this webpage was a rather exhaustive process and I'm sorry to hear that the singer/songwriter is now deceased. Did they ever issue any other 45's? Where could one find a picture of the group? Best wishes to all who come here. Paul Maney

It Began to rain hard. Nothing to do but get out that box of 45's behind that other box of 45's stacked on the top shelf. Low and behold there it was staring me in the face. The Ones-You Haven't Seen My Love on Fenton Records. As powerful as it was when I first heard it. Had to transfer it to CD so I could listen to it over and over and over. Damn what a great song!!!!!!!!!!JMM

In the late 60s our Owosso garage band occassionally used to play between sets when Danny Hernandez and the Ones played at the armory in Owosso. I still think Danny had one of the most versatile voices I've ever heard. As I recall he could even do Martha Reeves & Aretha Franklin numbers that sent chills down your spine...he was that good. Danny and the band seemed to perform with pure joy. I recently found a copy of the Motown 45 of "You haven't seen my Love". It's as great as I remember it. After getting out of the Navy in 76 I found Danny and, I think, Bob Baldori playing with a group at a bar in south Lansing. We had a great visit and I'll always appreciate how nicely he treated one of his old fans.

Posted by: George Brown at February 27, 2006 11:33 PM

I recently converted my brother-in-law's 45 of "You Haven't Seen My Love" to MP3. It was pretty scratchy, but I put a filter on it an cleaned it up pretty good. Good enough for a GREAT song. If anyone wants me to email it to them, LMK.

Posted by: PCS at April 1, 2006 10:11 PM

I remember Danny very well. they had played in the hickory lounge and SunSet Inn in the 70s. these two bars in Owosso used to pack them in when they were there. also i bought two 45s from a recond place in Flint both in excellent shape and the guy claims he has more.(Had) this was several years ago. the record company sells vintage records from all years. The place is called Musical Memories on S.Dort 810 238-5572 i know they were just off M21(Corunna rd) in Flint. great guys and knew exactly what i was looking for. they have a michigan band only section. hope this helps. also, if youve ever been to the Taco house in Owosso, Bennie Hernadez the owner, is Dannys Nephew. he could tell you much about them.

Posted by: Steve Minarik at August 8, 2006 08:02 AM

One other note, i was in a Mid- Michigan band years ago,(70s) from the Chesaning,MI area, we was pretty good but the band split up early and i always believed we would go somewhere if we stayed together but we didnt. some may remember us we were called: The Moonlight Corporation. i later produced a solo but never got any recognition. the lack of funds caused me to abandon pursuing it any further. Steve

Posted by: Steve M at August 8, 2006 08:26 AM

Please if anybody can email me a Copy of You haven't seen my love, by The Ones, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Posted by: Chris at August 11, 2006 03:44 PM

I love this song.
Please may I have a copy of "You haven't seen my love".
Will someone email me a copy?
Thankyou & Aloha

Posted by: Keith Kubo at August 28, 2006 11:53 PM

Hi all! It would really mean a lot to me if someone would be so kind to email me a copy of "You Haven't Seen My Love". Thank you Thank you Thank you..........

Posted by: M Parker at October 21, 2006 05:31 AM

I noticed that no one has posted on here in awhile. So, I am posting again hoping to reach PCS who posted last on April 1st, 2006 offering to send an email of the song "You haven't seen my love". I hope he or she checks this site often and gets my message. I will check back everyday if I have to. Just in case PCS reads this, my email is pinkgrl_21@yahoo.com. You don't know what it would mean to have that song. Thanks again.

Danny Hernandez & The Ones were a GREAT band! I was living in Mount Pleasant (attending CMU) and listened to WVIC - AM from Lansing, where The Ones were played a lot.

I've got an mp3 of "You Haven't Seen My Love," but the one I'd LOVE to get is "Don't Let Me Lose This Dream." I wish Ronnie Hernandez would put out a greatest hits CD. OUTSTANDING!

Posted by: Mark Rummel at November 2, 2006 01:08 AM

Danny used to play baseball with my dad back in the 60's. Many times after a game during the week or on the weekend, Danny would bring the band over to our house, cause back then we had a pretty big yard, and they would practice out in the yard. That was pretty cool. Neighbors would come out onto their porches and wonder what the heck was going on. But pretty soon they would be stopping their feet to the music. Those were the days. I just downloaded "you haven't seen my love", on Limewire. It's there for all now.

Posted by: Manuel D. at November 8, 2006 11:14 PM

Yes, Danny was and is one of the best. It is a great injustice that no one gave our just reward, we were the first white group to be signed to the Motown Label. according to my records. Maybe if we talk about this more some one will see and give mention.
and they will see our Love Ronnie Hernandez

Posted by: ronald Hernandez at November 20, 2006 06:29 PM


The Ones were great. I grew up in Portland, Mi - 20 miles west of Lansing. I played in a garage band in the late 60's called Our Generation.I still do many shows a year with a band called the Mayfields. I was sad to see that our single, "Baby Boy", written by Dick Wagner, recorded on Fenton, as well as "You Haven't Seen My Love", on Fenton,(later of course on Motown) were both excluded from the new Fenton Story release on Way Back Records. Two great performances!! I hope you are well and still out there playing. Take care.

Kerry Nicholoff, one of the members of The Ones, is my dad, and Kevin Nicholoff is my Uncle. I've heard tons of stories about the band but have never heard a single one of their songs, since all we have are the 45s of their singles. If somebody had an mp3 they could share with me, that would be absolutely incredible.

Posted by: Kory Nicholoff at December 12, 2006 06:48 PM

Ronnie.... if you ever decdie to release a box set of The Ones.... maybe you'll want me to illustrate the cover?

I heard the song on wkbw radio in late 60s and hit record on my reel to reel tape machine ,I found the tape just lately and will share an mp3 and would love someone to share other songs by The Ones with me if they want.I also would love a better copy tho mine is listenable it doesn't have part of the intro .I havent cleaned it up because I love the sound of it as I taped it .Its a thrill to know others like this song .I thought I was the only one .I will share it,please share others with me .....

Posted by: Paul Mac Donald at February 1, 2007 01:26 AM

"You Haven't Seen My Love" was one of my favorite records from the late sixties. Several stations in my area gave it plenty of airplay. I have a copy on the Spirit label and a local station had a promotional copy on Motown pressed on bright red vinyl! It should have gone to Number One Pop and R&B IMO.

Posted by: Dan Higgins at February 19, 2007 11:18 AM

We are working with Ronnie on a fundrasier for Multiple Sclerosis Society which will be held on St. Patricks Day. If any one has "You Haven't Seen My Love" please send it to me. Thanks, Santiago Rios

Posted by: Santiago Rios at February 20, 2007 11:16 AM

I had the privilege of not only listening to two of the greatest musician from Lansing, as I consider Danny Hernnandez and Ronny Hernandez but to know Danny as a warm, loving family man and a good friend and also to play with Ronny with the New Paris Bakery. That was and is the best experience that I remember in my life. Destiny was not just. You two were better musicians than most of the ones who made it big. Danny´s guitar playing was powerful, dynamic and sensual at the same time. And NO ONE could sing like Ronny Hernandez. It was a one in a billion voice and it was the worlds lost not to hear it.

Posted by: Tomy Cupas at March 24, 2007 01:03 AM

Mark Boomershine, the drummer for the ones, is my father. I have never got a chance to hear any of the songs. If someone could email them to me I would appreciate it.

Posted by: Monica Boomershine at May 31, 2007 07:09 PM


My name is Tom Kirby. I was the drummer with Tonto and the Renegades. We played with and watched your Dad many times at the Sceen. Your Dad was 1 helluva guy and a GREAT player and singer. The WHOLE band was one of the Greats from this area ever.


Posted by: tom kirby at June 1, 2007 03:57 PM

I saw the Ones live in 1971. Grand Haven Michigan at the Roller Rink.
They openeded with Everday People (Sly Stone
It was a great show.
They had an older black gentleman with them in a wheelchair who seemed to be their manager. I remember him dancing in the wheelchair by moving and spinning it to the tempo of the music...What a geat fab night to remember. I'd love to hear You've Never Seen My Love again. It was a soulful song on a level with When a Man loves a Woman.

Posted by: t.h.e. Modfather at June 9, 2007 12:33 AM

Hello All,
This is amazing. I am a music collector, especially Motown. I found The Ones on wax several yrs ago. I have 2 or 3 45's and am not able to do Mp3 conversion however. If any of the family memebers, children of and alike need to hear their family history, I will do what I can to convert for you hit me at JayLyrie@tmail.com.

I thought I was the only one moved by these guys. I'm a young urban black kid from Oakland. I love Danny Hernandez voice and delivery. Those guys were great.

Posted by: jay lyrie at June 10, 2007 02:53 PM

To all of The Ones kids:
My dad (Kevin Nicholoff)has the 45 converted to CD. The sound quality is pretty good considering. With any luck I can find it and burn copies for those of you who would like it. Please email me if you're interested and I'll see what I can do.

Posted by: Paris Nicholoff at June 26, 2007 12:08 PM


Posted by: Paris Nicholoff at June 26, 2007 12:10 PM

I remember Danny Hernandez and the Ones quite well. Danny helped fuel my artistic fire and I owe much of my success in music to him. He even called me once to try out as a guitarist for The Ones. I told him I couldn't because I was already in a working band. Truth is, I would have quit that band in a minute to work for Danny, but I was too scared to give it a try.

In later years I joined a band with Ronnie Hernandez (The One's drummer and Danny's nephew), and had a lot of fun. I love Ronnie, even if he doesn't answer my emails.

My club act, Chariot, was very successful using the Danny Hernandez, take-no-prisoners entertainment philosophy.

God bless you Danny, I know you're with The Lord.


Posted by: BC at July 26, 2007 09:34 PM

Hi Everyone:
I was surprised to find this. Really enjoyed reading the comments.
Yes, the reason I liked no loved this song was the lead singer's voice and the haunting organ playing it contained. It is truly one of the greatest records and never got the recognition that it most certainly deserved.
I used to play it(45 r p m) over and over.If
my recollection is correct I used to listen to this song on C.H.L.O. 1570, a small radio station in ST. Thomas,Ontario Canada. So this record got more air play than some people think.
Maybe everyone could let us know where they heard You Have'nt Seen My Love.
I don't recall the fenton label, it seems to me it was predominantly black with white lines could this be because it was Canada and on a different label???
It has been a pleasure remeniscing with all you "Ones" fans and I thank the Ones, one and all,for all that listening pleasure.
If anyone can e-mail me a good mp3 copy I would be really appreciative of this kindness.
Thank-you so much Michael

Posted by: M J F at August 5, 2007 08:48 PM

I ran into Ronnie Hernandez playing in Traverse City earlier this week. Sadly, he doesn't have "You haven't seen my Love" on his play list. However, he did do Aretha's "Respect", which brought a big round of applause from everyone in the lounge. All that was needed was a Hammond in the background and it would have been the late 60s all over again. Thanks Ronnie for the deja-vu!!!

Posted by: George Brown at September 22, 2007 08:54 PM

Owosso Armory dances!
DON'T LET ME LOSE THIS DREAM!We've been trying to get a copy of it for years.

Ronnie Hernandez was in T.C. this month I heard.

Posted by: Jeanne at September 30, 2007 04:59 PM

Just stumbled across this post....nice to know that The Ones had so many loyal fans. I worked on the single and we had some great response, it was #1 for us @ WYSL(Top 40) in Buffalo NY. I believe it stayed at #1 for 4 or 5 weeks. So 40 years later,thanx to the Ones for making such a memorable recording and alwways know in your heart of hearts that you weren't wrong! Be safe and keep ROCKIN'

Posted by: Richard Sargent at February 18, 2008 04:29 AM

A great song with soaring vocals that sound amazingly mature for a guy who was only in his late teens at the time! Love the Hammond B-3 and the simple, powerful arrangement. BTW, the song also got a few spins on Buffalo's WKBW which was heard all over the east coast. I have a well-worn promo copy and plan to rip it to WAV and clean it up using a professional audio processing program. Not only is the song great, that classic Motown label makes it even better.

Posted by: Jim Pastrick at April 2, 2008 04:52 PM

I was a friend of Ronnie Hernandez when he sang with a group called the Rupertss "33" Club Band in Chicago. Later when Rupert's closed, he sang with "The Late Night Band" with Dave Farley. I would like to say hello as I now live in Las Vegas. Hope someone has an email for Ronnie.

"You Haven't Seen My Love" and "Don't Let Me Lose This Dream" are both available on iTunes, as part of 1968 and 1969 Motown "Greatest Hits" albums. The best music ever!

Posted by: Mark Rummel at April 28, 2008 10:35 PM

i have dont let me loose this dream and you havent seen my love on cd

Posted by: chuck hofacker at June 9, 2008 11:28 AM

I first saw Danny with the Nicholoff`s in the 60s as they won the Battle of The Bands , they were great .
Then at a teen center called Hullabaloo I found myself sitting at a table with Dan on one side and Ted Nugent on the other , that was cool...
In the early 70s Danny was the ultimate showman with his vocals , humor and Gibson SG , Ronnie absolutley hammered the drums and vocals , Tom Taylor let his Les Paul and 335 Gibson do the talking , Jim Pitchford on the Hammond B3 and vocals and Gary Melvin on Bass , I was doing the sound and light show and for a few years of my youth I was a part of the The Ones family . I was there when Danny`s father passed and later his mother , Ronnie`s aunt worked with my mother at the hospital and later Danny`s daughter worked with my wife ... Danny and The Ones have always been apart of my life and I still enjoy the records , the Live at The Brewery album and all the 45s . Danny has gone on to a bigger stage in a better place and if he ever needs a sound and light guy who plays a little guitar I`ll be there ... Ronnie , Tom , Jim , Brad Hersey ,and Ron Michler , all I can say is Thanks your awesome people ! ~Dave

Posted by: Dave Morehouse at August 6, 2008 04:35 PM

Dave - Good morning. Beautiful entry! Is there any chance that you have transferd the One's material onto a CD? If so, I would (as well as many others I'm sure) love ONE. Let me know if you can.

Posted by: Patrick Dawdy at August 8, 2008 08:18 AM

Patrick ~ No I have not copied to CD , I would like to see a CD or maybe a Memorial CD available but not really my place to do it .
Perhaps I can copy what I have to CD for Ronnie to distribute, would certainly make available what I have if needed.
I`ll contact Ronnie and kick it around , copy rights or other issues may also exist ? will let you know the scoop soon I hope ...
I listen , when I hear the music of The Ones ,
I remember , when I hear Danny sing ,
And for a moment he puts a smile on my heart....

Posted by: Dave Morehouse at August 28, 2008 01:09 PM

Dave - Thanks.

Posted by: Patrick Dawdy at August 29, 2008 08:09 AM

I have a copy of Dancing in Lansing that was givin to to me by one of Ronnie's nephews back when we were in High School. The record has a scratch on it and does not play very well. does anyone have any idea where i could find a new one or a copy on mp3

Posted by: Rob Chrisman at September 19, 2008 08:41 PM

In 1965 the original "Ones" consisted of four guys from the southside of Lansing - Kevin Nicholoff his younger brother Kerry Nicholoff, Mark Boomershine & Terry Miller. A young super talented teenager from the Eastside of Lansing by the name of Danny Hernandez replaced Terry Miller. Before Danny joined "The Ones" he was the front man in an amazing club band by the name of "Pepi & the Problems" Danny being Pepi. Danny was such an amazing talent that he not only could out sing and out play anyone around, but he could also out dance anyone. Danny was such a showman and talent onstage that he could sing the song like no one else, could play the guitar with his teeth and over his head like Jimi Hendrix and at the same time, dance across the stage like James Brown. Hey Ronnie, do remember that! Once he got with the Nicholoff Brothers, it was the perfect combo of talent & taste. One more thing, Danny had great humor and was a very humble guy with a great heart. I'll always love him.

Posted by: Jim J at September 22, 2008 12:54 PM

Man what a great place to learn a little bit about this band!!! My father in law was one of the original band members. He was the drummer Mark Boomershine. I love learning more and more about him and this band. I just found a 45 on ebay of a song they made written by the one and only Aretha Franklin titled "Don't Let Me Loose This Dream." I would love to hear some of the original music from when they were in high school and just starting out. If anyone can help me please email me. Thank you.

Posted by: Rich Pulido at November 17, 2008 02:23 AM

Mark Boomershine is my brother. He was the bands origional drummer. He was a star and by association I was a star. The Ones rocked mid-michigan for several years and I was able to see other great bands as well because of them. It was a great time to be in Lansing as places like Hullabaloo and the battle of the bands were jamed for the concerts. As I am writing this I am listening to You Haven,t Seen my Love on Napster.
I found it last year and continue to love it.

Posted by: Mike Boomershine at December 10, 2008 05:14 AM

does anyone have the lyics to "you haven't seen my love" have not heard this song in over 30 yrs. thank God for computers. best song ever and could not be sung and will never be sung by anyody better than Danny.

Posted by: john sylvester at February 12, 2009 09:33 PM

Anyone interested in music by the GREAT band The Ones can purchase all 3 singles (A and B sides) that the band recorded for Motown Records at iTunes. Type in the Complete Motown Singles. It's well worth it! Enjoy!

Posted by: Patrick at February 19, 2010 09:17 AM

I remember seeing them at the Round Lake Lodge outside of Lansing/Haslett back in the late 60's what a wonderful sound, the band was great.
I can't remember how I know the Boomershine family but the name is so familiar. Thanks for the memories. Eric

Posted by: Eric at April 16, 2010 03:30 PM

Hi could someone email me a good copy of you've never seen my love by the ones . thank you so much.


Posted by: Rana at November 28, 2010 02:34 PM

Rana - You can purchase all singles by "The Ones" on itunes.

Posted by: Patrick at December 4, 2010 08:10 AM

Wow, I just found this site, as it is close to fathers day and I was thinking about my dad. Danny Hernandez was the best father a girl could ask for. It is so incredible to see how his music has touched so many. What a fantastic tribute to a fantastic man. I couldnt be more proud.

Posted by: Jodie Hernandez Snyder at June 17, 2011 10:32 PM

Grew up in Colonial Village in Lansing and lived on Victor Street the same as Kevin and Kerry. Mark lived on Boston Blvd. and his backyard was right next to the Elmhurst School playground.

Remember the "Battle of the Bands" well. I believe the 1st winner was Boogie "Bob Baldori and The Woolies" who had a local hit with "Who Do You Love".

It seems Danny and the Ones won the second and part of the award was a Motown deal. Danny told me once that Berry Gordy had them under contract but was more interested in promoting "Rare Earth" who also played Lansing frequently at the Dells and earlier at the Coral Gables when they were known as the "Sunliners"

The Ones were fondly remembered as the Band that actually brought the roof down (seems it couldn't handle so many decibels) at "Grandmothers, or maybe it was known as the "Brewery" then and later became the infamous Silver Dollar Saloon{.

Another local Battle of The Bands band were Ron and Gary Kemerer who used Shannon as their stage last name and were known as "Shannon's Cannon", "The Saharas", and "EZ Living". Amazingly they grew up on Victor Street prior to moving to Holt at the same time the Nicholoff brothers did.

So glad I found this site and I know a couple Lansing DJ's from the mid 60's to mid 70's who are searching for clean copies of anything "The Ones" recorded.

There is a lot of local interest in the music and bands from that era. I just seen "The Blue Echoes" last weekend and they still have the 2 original founding members.

It was a privilege for me to know Danny, Kevin, Kerry, and Mark and to have been there and seen them live in concert many times.

PS - The old Hullabaloo Teen Club is now a DeJa Vu strip joint and of course the Incline Teen Club has been gone for a long time.

Posted by: Chuck Pope at October 4, 2011 03:34 PM

I've been in touch with Kerry the last couple weeks , my buddy and I went in and recorded " Haven't seen my Love " with Kerry Nicholoff 's blessing ...we learned the song as kids back in the day ..and alway's loved it ... it's on Facebook ( MARINER ) you'd like to hear it ....jimmy
