Brunswick Records - The 45's they put pur after Carl Davis Left

Recommended Posts

Always had a fascination with Brunswick records, as I'm sure we all do. Just re reading Robert Pruter's bible 'Chicago soul' again, and it struck me that all the Brunswick 45's I love and buy seem to have come a certain period when Carl Davis was at the company and they created their own sound. According to Pruters book, once he had left the company taking with him many of the key arrangers / musicians the company's production line if you will kind of ground to a halt, and they heavily bought acts and artists songs to release.

I keep coming across 45's that are so so, some are pretty bad in fact, and unless they are actually earlier releases than the Golden 'Soul ' period, I assume they fall under that category of being bought after Davis left the company...  My question is this, whats the best of that period?

Not Northern, but I love the Persuaders' single on Brunswick, Another Time, Another Place. It's fantastic sweet soul.



Great record i have it on a 12" and 45.
