ANNOUNCING DIGGIN’ DEEP RECORDS NEWEST RELEASE!
TWO SUPERB SLICES OF GROUP SOUL!

THE NEWEST ‘DIGGIN’ DEEP’ LIMITED EDITION 45

RELEASE DATE FRIDAY 4th OCTOBER 2019

AVAILABLE TO PRE-ORDER FROM 23rd SEPTEMBER 2019!

Can You Dig It?

DD 008A - The Radiations “That’s The Way (Our Love Is)”
DD 008B - The Lovers “When You’re Poor”

It is with great pleasure that we announce the latest Diggin’ Deep 45. A pair of excellent group Soul tracks, available to pre order on 23rd September 2019.

The top side, ‘That’s The Way (Our Love Is)’ is a blistering, midtempo, number from The Radiations, a New York based vocal group, famed for their much loved 1969 outing on Valise ‘Love Be Not a Stranger’. This previously unissued record has been very well received by lovers of group and ‘crossover’ soul whenever it’s been played out. It’s bound to be a winner in discerning soul circles.

The Radiations were one of a stable of artists that New York producer David Blake worked with which included the Quotations, Frank Dell, The Headliners, Jackie Owens and Johnny Watson on Valise. They were all based around New York and this fine midtempo treasure is an example of soul group singing at its best.

The flipside ‘When You’re Poor’ from The Lovers is another ‘previously unreleased on vinyl’ number, written and arranged by Arthur Wright. Following its discovery and inclusion in the bestselling compilation ‘This Is Lowrider Soul’ last year, the track has become hugely appreciated across the USA, Europe and beyond by lovers of sweet and group soul music.

The Lovers were stationed at the Deal Air Force base in northern California and had releases on Vardan as The Emotions and Philips as The Lovers, and later on Minit, Boola-Boola and Fantasy recording as the Pacesetters. This Diggin’ Deep 45 is the first vinyl release from the group in over 40 years.

Take a listen to a minute of each side on the video:

Both tracks are now available on a beautifully mastered vinyl 45.

DD008 collector’s release is a limited pressing @ just £12 each plus postage and packing.

Thanks for that Tony,that answers a question as I thought it was strange to have to groups with the same name in the same state. Chris.
