I sure ain't knowledgable on rare soul records (unless they're from Ohio or the Pacific NW)...but is this really as unknown as claimed?

I had never heard it until this week, sounded excellent to me.

Could it be something we don't get much of these days, a 60's newie?!

Very strange price result, maybe it was something about the Shrine connection.

Amazing money. A nice 60's record but not worth that in terms of musical quality imho. Obviously very rare though!

what shrine connection?

also, for what it's worth, the group members didn't say anything about a shrine connection, don't know if you were assuming something or not.

yes it's the same label. there are a few more random releases on vick. bob lee owned it, along with jerhart, hawk, toi, big 3, sta-set, etc. there are apparently two different presses of the emeralds that look the same but are different versions.

i'm pretty sure there's no connection. this group did have connections to the magnificents on dee gee and the disco group masheen co.

true. re price...thats what you get when theres some buzz about a 45 on here before auction has fnished and two bidders end up bidding themselves up to their reserve. sth tells me you will be able to hear the record at the upcoming big line up scotland and nürnberg weekenders in a nighter context...

I wonder if Leo Austell co-owned Vick and Sta-Set along with Lee, as his own Lamaja Music was involved in virtually every record I have on those labels, including The Emeralds on Vick. Austell was also co-producer with Lee on The Emeralds' record.

I thought The Magnificents on Dee Gee was an L.A. record, as it was produced by H.B. Barnum for Jobete Music L.A. office, with Frank Wilson and Marc Gordon writing it. Were those the Chicago Magnificents? Did they move to L.A. with Magnificent Montague, when he came to L.A. to be a DJ on KGFJ?
