Eddie Hughes or Don Hysung bard records soul searcher

Posted

In case you haven’t seen Steve Jeffries has a red Bard label copy of Eddie Hughes great Soul Searcher by the writer, Don Hysung on his site. It’s same backing and very similar to Bob and Fred’s Ill be on my way. Has anyone any info on them  it’s a small Detroit label not sure if related to Big Mack which released Bob and Fred  must be very rare - anyone heard either version played out  the Don Hysung one is poorer voice imho  

Here is link to EH.

Both were played out at the lifeline allnighter and other upfront venues several years back.  No way does this sound like Bob and Fred to my ears. Bob and Fred sounds more like a sidra production, hence why it was covered up as Ronnie and robyn. As for Eddie Hughes and Don hysong Eddie Hughes wins my vote sounding more soulful.

I don’t hear Bob and Fred in it either, totally different to my cloth ears. 
 

Eddie Hughes played briefly by Pat mid 80s at Stafford.  Andy Dyson and Arthur Fenn as you say, think Kenny Burrell was playing Don’s take if memory serves, or was it Keith?

Great thanks - I did search but only found a short note by Chalky. Trust Mr Thorley to have found one even if it was the worst version. PT

Clearly Hysong's version was just a demo for Eddie Hughes' commercial release.  I'm sure Hysong's being pressed up on Bard was just an extremely small "vanity" pressing.  I really doubt that more than 100 were pressed.  Back in the day, I remember seeing a reasonable number of The Eddy Hughes record both in Detroit and Chicago, but never saw the Don Hysong.  I really doubt that Bard thought they could get Hysong's played on Pop stations, and could sell it to Pop fans. 

Hughes' is great.  Hysong's wasn't commercial quality.  It's the songwriter giving his artist a not-very-good idea of how it should be sung, knowing Hughes would "spruce it up" and put a soulful take on it.

It pre-dates Billy Stewart's "I Do Love You", but has an extremely similar musical phrase in it.

I’m sure you’re right Rob on the demo and I agree on quality. Cheers. P

I would guess that there is a very, very good chance, given that The Fantastic Four and he were all within a year or 2 in age, when they were singers in Detroit.  It was a small, tight community.  Everyone knew of everyone else in the business, and many of them were friends of many of the others.  Now they're appearing together in Detroit.  I would guess (and bet) this Eddy Hughes is the singer who recorded for Bard Records.

I think Karl (unlike us) does facebook, so perhaps a message and if it is him we could find out (please Karl) and about the label etc. and if he has a 100 box in his cellar, I sold my copy a million years ago ........ why ?

I have asked and it isn’t the Eddie Hughes we are interested in. 

It stands to reason, as He looks way too young to have been even within 20 years of the 1964 singer.

Eddie Hughes was my 'george lemons' c/u. from the late 80s.  Certainly didn't get played at Stafford.

I didn't think it had but one or two swear it did and I asked Pat and he said he played it the odd time?
