Ace Spectrum was an R&B, soul and disco musical group that was popular in the mid-1970s. Based in New York City the group consisted of Rudy Gay Sr., Elliot Isaac, Henry "Easy" Zant, Aubrey "Troy" Johnson, and, on their final album, Frederick G. Duff and Lawrence Coley. Zant, (also known as Edward "Easy" Zant), was not only a member but he also managed the group. Gay, Isaac, Zant and Johnson began collaboration as a group in 1966. Don't Send Nobody Else, written by Ashford & Simpson, was their biggest single. From their Tony Sylvester-produced debut album, it peaked at #57 on Billboard's Hot 100 while finding its way to the Top 20 on the R&B Singles chart. Their single Keep Holdin' On was released as a 12-inch single, and heavily promoted by their record label at disco clubs. Another single Live And Learn with lead vocals by Frederick, reached position #35 on the Dance Music/Club Play Singles chart. Their first two albums saw chart action. "Inner Spectrum" attained position #28 on the R&B Albums chart, and "Low Rent Rendezvous" saw action on the Billboard 200 (#138), as well as on R&B Albums (#35). Patrick Adams produced and arranged the group's 1976 recordings, but consequential success eluded them.
