Sophisticated Ladies photos/promotional material

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Would anyone happen to have any photos of the Sophisticated Ladies, who released the tracks 'Check It Out', 'This Ain't Really Love' etc? Or any promotional material etc?

Many thanks for any help you can give!

Wasn't Sophisticated Ladies the same group as the Bobettes of 'I Shot Mr Lee' fame? Something like that anyway... 'Check it Out' was a Bobby Womack song.

Spooky & Sue were from the Netherlands (cover of The Moments / Chuck Jackson).

NOT CONNECTED TO THE ACTUAL GROUP ...... BUT ....

if you do a google search using their name & soul .... just about the only thing that comes up are articles about the Brodway show of that name (which was based around Duke Ellington's music). Incidently, one of the stars who had leading roles on that show was Phyllis Hyman ...

CHECK THIS OUT THOUGH .... http://www.uncamarvy.com/Bobbettes/bobbettes.html  

.... an extract .... 1977 saw some releases as the Sophisticated Ladies. These were 12-inch 33 1/3 dance mixes, released on both Bareback and Mayhew (with the same record numbers), one record was "Check It Out, Parts 1 & 2), and the other was "Check It Out, Part 1," backed with "Good Man."
