Press Release: Mighty Lovers   “Ain’t Gonna Run No More/(She Keeps)Driving Me 

                                                                 Out Of My Mind” SJ1001


Release Date:   Monday June 1st 2015



The Mighty Lovers “Ain’t Gonna Run No More” on Soul Hawk records was once regarded as just a cheap Detroit collectors label filler, but with the current popularity of a more funkier soul sound it’s quirky dance groove has seen this 45 grow in popularity and demand throughout Europe. Therefore we at Soul Junction as part of our current Licensing deal with the Wylie family have chosen to reissue it to meet the current demand.


The Mighty Lovers were reputedly connected to the Chicago group the Ideals who recorded for the Satellite and St. Lawrence labels. As The Mighty Lovers they recorded the song “The Mighty Lover” which was released twice on Sammy Kaplan’s Boo-Ga-Loo label, credited to both the Mighty Lovers (Boo-Ga-Loo 468) and as the Ideals (Boo-Ga-Loo 108).


We currently can’t confirm the true identity of the Mighty Lovers but what we do know is that “Ain’t Gonna Run No More” was recorded in Chicago in 1970 under the direction of Popcorn Wylie who also played piano on the session. The session also featured Buford “Fabb” Glanton and Leroy Emanuel on Lead and Bass guitar respectively. The distinctive horn intro was provided by Trumpeter Ron Jackson. While the b-side is a great little feel good dancer “(She Keeps) Driving Me Out Of My Mind” which also shares the same backing track as Stanley Mitchells northern soul classic “Quit Twisting My Arm” on Dynamo records. As well as the New Holidays Westbound release “My BabyAin’t a Plaything”. Using the same backing track on different songs was a common practice of Producer Popcorn Wylie.
