THE EMBRACERS - STOP AND LET YOURSELF GO - LUCKY LABEL INC 1000

 

anyone know anything about this record at all - it's on JM's site at £350.  It's very doo-wop influenced, just wondered if it was known or played and what I should ask for it.

Wow! Doc Oliver's Chicago early '60s label.  That's the one on which Otis Leavill had his first release in 1961.  I'd LOVE to hear the 2 sides of this Embracers.  I never saw it, but do remember the group from back in '61-3.  I bet it's right up my alley.  Can anyone upload files of the sides?

Thanks.  "Stop" is a very good mid-tempo, reminiscent of The "St. Louis Sound" of the early '60s.  The ballad side, "Mr. Sunrise" was quite disappointing.  I wonder what else was on Doc Oliver's "Lucky" and "Mr. Lucky" Records, other than The Embracers and Otis Leavill, (and, I also remember a bluesy record by a male Bluesy R&B artist)?

I forgot about "Goin'Through a Change" better record than "Tighten Up Your Game".

Singin' Sam also came out on Dee Dee with a different flip.
