Oh yes,

Memories of the Atlantic Package Tour feat The Detroit Spinners that toured the UK in the 70's. Also the song 'Love Don't Love Nobody', amongst others, such a brilliant tune. Billy Henderson R.I.P and thank you so much for your timeless music.

Just a sample of my faves, sadly at the turn of the 70s they left Sigma Sound in Philly and headed for the disco lights and programmed music, I continued to buy their albums out of sheer respect for them but some of the 80s albums are pretty dire, would post some sound clips up but all the songs are on my windows media player and don't really know how to transfer them for upload on here.
