Back in 2003 I was contacted by the drummer of the Soul Set of 'Will You Ever Learn' fame...and within a few months another guy contacted me saying that he was the drummer! As it turns out one of them played on the record and the other in the live band. This info has been on my site since those days.
Now leap forward to this year and within the last month I was contacted by the founder, leader, sax-blower and song-writer from the Soul Set...Charlie Greenway. Many emails were swapped and he supplied some stunning background info on putting the band together, writing the songs, their original set lists etc!
He also supplied pictures of the original publisher's certificate for, 'Will You Ever Learn' and the Soul Set business card...WOW!
I've put it all together and uploaded the pictures up onto my site... link below
"...As if by magic, a couple of hours later we were playing, "Will You Ever Learn" and "Please Don't Make Me Cry" exactly how I had heard them in my mind a few hours previous whilst in the back of our automobile! Believe it or not, we then gave the tunes their debut during our concert with The Drifters the next night.
Over the following months we played them on stage many times in clubs and frat houses, and then recorded them at Arthur Smith Studios in Charlotte, NC. Our manager, David Fisher, gave us a couple boxes of records to pass on to anyone we knew in radio, who would play it for us, and to autograph and sell on to pick up... ”
