Articles: HOF: The Sapphires - Mixed Group Inductee

Recommended Posts

Brilliant write up as always Dave, love the Sapphires 'fantastic four' singles to bits....


However, Joe Livingston and George Garner eh?  Not being familiar with their earlier singles, is there any evidence of these guys actually singing on the records? Sound like all female backing to me. In fact first time I saw a photo of the Sapphires i thought it was a different group.

If you look at one of the footnotes at the end of the article, it's says  Jerry Ross used Nick Ashford, Valerie Simpson and Melba Moore

as a backup group - that's probably who you're hearing .

Yep I read that and can certainly hear the female backing, but no Jerry, Nick and no bona fide male group members!...

What I'm trying to say is did Joe and George hear the playback and think "am I on this?"
