Another offering of Detroit `60s (Northern) soul from the D-Town vaults. F/the Funk Brothers & the Hi Rhythm section & vocal power that equalled the Temptations & Curtis Mayfieldﾒs Impressions on originals & covers including 5 non-LP cuts.
The Telephone Song b/w Tired of Fighting Chas Bradley teams up w/the Menahan Street Band phonin`, moanin, & groanin` your heart over one of the nastiest deep soul backing tracks ever cut to wax. The B is an instrumental off the forthcoming Menahan LP.
Includes rare & unreleased early productions of the `Funk Brother` & nails the `transitional` sounds critical to the formation of Northern soul. Combines his finger popping instrumentals w/productions by other artists.
From the vaults of Daptone Records, comes a collection of unreleased tracks. Recorded after 1st sessions but before those for the second album, this EP is a fascinating glimpse into the group`s evolution as musicians & recording artists.
Influenced by Funkadelic, Earth, Wind & Fire, Sly Stone & local predecessors the Fabulous Counts created their own unique style by taking a dedicated instrumental direction & abandoning the vocalization present on their first 2 singles.
Heaven & Earth`s `I Really Love You` & Mel Brooks `It`s Good To Be The King`. Two 80`s roller rink classics that spell out r-e-a-l s-o-u-l! Nice price for two really prime records from the library of WMOT/PBI Records.
