Ronny Lowe - The one who really loves you (PANTHER)

Posted

I see that Ronny Lowe and Dominos  ' The one that really loves you ' / ' Too many fish in the sea ' on Panther Records (same label as Ward Burton) is fetching some decent money, have the same 45 on the same release no. credited to Willie Hammond, seems to be a little rarer ?  Notice on the R. Lowe release, the label states vocal by Willie.  Anyone else got the same release ?

Seen one recently VG for £250 all the releases on Panther must be obscure and little is know about them, I am guessing that Will Hammond owned the label as he produced all the releases, I think he must be the same man who did Garbage Man (Muddy Waters) and was from South Carolina, but as with most things I am not 100% sure

It is I believe. The vocal on 'The one...' sounds white in places, so it all seems to fit. Nice harmonies though.

Yep. I won the copy on Popsike that went for $59! Well pleased with the record. Like yourself, I saw one sell for much more last week. All the Ronny Lowe copies seem to have ‘vocal by Willie’ on them. The Willie Hammond version is scarcer as last time I looked, only two copies featured on Popsike.

 don't see what the fuss is about personally? Very average. Is it because its rare/obscure? 

It isn't a patch on Mary Wells.

It’s a decent Motown cover and quite soulful despite the group composition. No fuss really, just another obscurity receiving some recognition after 50 years of being overlooked. Certainly a record that merits discussion following a noteworthy sale price recently. I would be interested to know if there are any other soul records on the Panther label in view of Ward Burton’s and Ronnie Lowe’s releases.

Agree with Chalky, nowhere near as good as the marvellous Mary Wells orig version (actually one of my favourite female artists), but an interesting and very worthwhile double-header of Motown covers, and I won it on Ebay several years ago for $20.

Turned this and WB up in early 90's I think from a box under the table in Ye Olde Clocke Shoppe in Kannapolis.

There were about three boxes full of oddball NC labels.

Sold WB to  Sam and I think Phil Wainwright got the other title.

Pretty sure I left Ronnie Lowe. Vocals let it down.

 According to R&B Indies Ward Burton Panther out of Greenville, SC whilst the Reggie Sadler Panther is Hickory, NC.  They may well be linked somehow though.

The two Panther labels are obviously different, one being red and the other yellow. Whether they are the same outfit or two different set-ups I am not sure. As  Chalky suggests, there could be a link. The red label is of the earlier plain generic type whilst the yellow one looks later and backed by more promotion finance. Having two separate indie labels clashing names in adjacent states would be most unusual, even back then so I would be inclined to suspect a connection of some sort QED.

Ward Burton one is 66/7 or 67/8.  The other 69.

I noticed there was also a white garage rock band called "The Bojax" from NC and although not soul related one of their Panther singles had same Cat number as the Ward Burton and there was some connection with Major Bill (here we go again) too and of course that could lead anywhere and I really would like to stick the thread, but guess, as in life all roads take you in certain directions

I haven't read the links yet so not sure where the connection to Bill Smith comes from?  Obviously Sweet Temptation/If'N are his records but the rest all appear to have no connection.  Panther owned by Willie Hammond.

The only other Greenville connection I can think of with major Bill is Martha Starr who came from the town.

Probably a carver.  There is probably a carver out there of just about every record, most of the sellers on ebay who offer boots are carvers and some do them to order.  I haven't seen a boot of Ward Burton, a boot as in a 300 count press etc.
