Josesph Stubbs - Falcons - Got to Make a MoveS

Recommended Posts

Bit confused here , there seems to be 2 Versions , 1 by Joseph Stubbs (Levi's Bro I Believe ) and 1 by the Falcons which I know Joe sang with and they have the same label number on Atkins Allstars.

Great tune but which is the original version and value ? any help appreciated :thumbsup:

If it was listed alternatively as Joe Stubbs and The Falcons, I have to assume that the original recording was made by The Falcons, with Joe Stubbs on lead.  That leads me to believe it was from a previously unreleased tape made under the auspices of Robert West (probably during the group's Lupine or period (or with the much lesser posibility that it was made during their Atlantic period)..

When speaking to The Stubbs family, they told me that it was recorded  in the early 80's as stated on the record. They said it was the last thing that they recorded when the group reformed in the 80's. Also the track sounds like a 80's recording when you listen to it. The Joe Stubbs pressing was released a year before they re-released under The Falcons name, but they are the same recording. Also a member of this line up was another founding member Lance Finney, who we also visited and confirmed what we had been told by Joe's family.

PS Joe was a bit of a journeyman when it came to Detroit groups. When he left the Falcons, he joined The Originals and was the lead singer on 'Good night Irene'. Then later again having a spell with The Contours, before returning to the 80's line up of The Falcons. Lastly the group reformed one more time after his death with one member that worked in the group during the 50's/60's period, Carlos (Sonny) Munro in 2005, but this was short lived.

Thanks.  I didn't know that The original Falcons got back together.

Wasn't his spell with the Contours before the Originals ?

I believe he was with The Contours first, starting in 1966 ("Baby Hit And Run", It's So hard Being a Loser" 1967), and THEN with The Originals ("Good Night Irene" - 1967).  The Contours - "Just a Little Misunderstanding"

Wasn't his spell with the Contours before the Originals ?

I believe so, as "Baby Hit and Run" and Just a Little Misunderstanding were both 1966, and "Good Night Irene" was 1967.
