Two More Sad Losses

Recommended Posts

Just heard about the sad recent passing of R&B veteran Earl Gaines und Soul artist Harmon Bethea of Maksman & The Agents. RIP.

Sad to hear about Earl, had a chance to meet him at one of his recording sessions at Echo Studios, Memphis a couple of years back, nice guy.

indeed a sad loss but we always got the memories and the music thumbup.gifthumbup.gif

very true, still I feel its frightening how many great artists are currently leaving us, Wilie Mitchell, Teddy Pendergrass (at only 59) Harmon Bethea, Earl Gaines to name only just the very recent ones.

marc,

always knew deep down there had to be another cut of this track, now youve shown the way. remember john vincent playing this at wigan but at the time i thought the batteries in my cassette were shot as it sounded speeded up when i played it at home!. just to add irony, i bought a copy of the "slower" version off kieth williams about 9 years ago thinking it was the real deal. it was released on deluxe i think but i have seen other gaines releases on hbr and he was quite prolific on other labels....SO NOW I WILL BE LOOKING FOE EITHER 7" OR LP.....ANYONE SELLING?...on hbr (of course!)
