Articles: HOF: The Masqueraders - Male Group Inductee

Recommended Posts

Absolutely brilliant read, was there at Prestatyn, they were superb, my only hang up was that Lee Jones was not there, god knows how they would have sounded if he were there. The description of "I'm an average guy" is perfect in this write up and sums them up exactly in my eyes, every soul fan should have one on their shelf

Thank you, Dave!

 

I'm also happy that you wrote the article above and keep the group in the limelight.  We're talking about one of the most underrated groups in soul music.

 

Best regards

Fantastic article as for the group well I have and will have a row with anyone this group were better than the Temps despite all the facilities that were laid on at Motown I think the Masqueraders vocals are tighter than most groups of that time

A great read on a fantastic group. I attempted an article and discography back in the day for Derek Pearson's "Shades Of Soul" - forget which issue! I remember research on them was very difficult at the time and was incomplete, the internet is a wonderful thing. American "Goldmine" magazine reviewed that issue of the mag and gave my article high praise which chuffed me to bits at the time.

HOW BIG IS BIG, Don't get much, no, nowhere near BIGGER.

 

What an insight to a fabulous, yet underrated (by the masses) group. 

 

Could only identify 4 records from hearing at venues (Wand, Labeat, AGC? and SoulTown)

Any more?

 

Fantastic read

A superb piece about an exceptional group, thank you. "How" was one of the first bunch of records that turned me onto soul music as a teenager and to this day, I still consider it a masterpiece.
