New 45 - The Turbines - We Got To Start Over - Soul Direction Origins magazine cover

A new release from Soul Direction imprint Origins

The Turbines - We Got To Start Over - (Soul Direction Origins) 1006A

Here's the release spiel...

Soul Direction Records are pleased to announce the next instalment in the "Origins" family.

The Turbines - "We Got To Start Over"/ "What More Can I Say" - (Soul Direction Origins)  SDO-1006

Release Date: August 2022


Very little is known at all about the Turbines or indeed the Cenco Label.

The almost "David Ruffin" feel to the lead singers voice made "We Got To Start Over" an instant
dance floor winner from around the "Top of The World" era of the 80s and 90s to this day and still
remains a constant on many wants lists. As you would expect an elusive and rare 45 to own in it's
original form.

The only other track they performed for the label is the also very rare Fred And The Turbins -
"Bernadine" which we assume is the same group with slightly different spelling. This has been a
Northern Soul dance floor winner since the late 80s.

Soul Direction bring you this first ever UK release fully Licensed from Resnik Music with all licensing
and publishing rights paid.

Sleeve Notes

Very little is known at all about the Turbines or indeed the Cenco Label. Here is what we think we know:

Cenco Records was a Label from Hollywood California, Owned by Mike Gradney (AKA Mike Gradny) 

Mike Gradney (Gradny), a Los Angeles veteran had previously been A&R man at Larry Mead's Vita/Mambo labels and had managed Mead's Perfection Plastics pressing plant.

Gradney supposedly' started his Spry label in 1957 and Cenco came along some time in the 1960s. Judging by the constant appearance of "Class Publishing" on Cenco labels we can only assume Class was also a Gradney company although as far as we know, it was nothing to do with Leon Rene's Class Records.

Cenco records ran from around 1961 to 1969 with around a couple of dozen released 45s and one album by Ike and Tina Turner but the connection is not crystal clear although the use of "Placid Music" which appears on some of the Duo's early Sue recordings may be the answer. The label issued mostly bluesy driven songs but there were some odd exceptions including these 2 tracks plus Shades of Jade - "Is It Wrong" and Carbo Brothers - "What Can I Give Her".

The only other track they performed for the label is the also very rare Fred And The Turbins - "Bernadine" which we assume is the same group with slightly different spelling. This has been a Northern Soul dance floor winner since the late 80s

The almost "David Ruffin" feel to the lead singers voice made "We Got To Start Over" an instant dance floor winner from around  the "Top of The World" Stafford era of the 80s and 90s to this day and still remains a constant on many wants lists. As you
would expect an elusive and rare 45 to own in it's original form.
