Maybe some reissue ? Interesting tho. 

On the orig DJO label its "You Turn me on / Generation Gap". 

YTMO is a personal fave. A powerful, rumbling, moody track with great vocals.

its stamped january 1971 so definitely a contemporary release IMO. the USA copies are from 1970

Joda had the rights to DRO, JaWes, Deluxe etc, for Brazil.

So they used to cherry pick artistes and releases, hence putting this pairing together.

They also used to mix artists, example Helen Curry So Sad DRO J 0110 with Little Hite & Soul Rockers A While Ago Ja Wes 3007 .

This was a reflection of what was being played in the Rio clubs at that time.

When Willie was interviewed there appeared to be no mention of the group members, do we know why ?

  No but, if you go by Discogs, the Turks are the same group as the Dontells. Group members were  Nate Pendleton, Leroy Dandridge, Larry Nestor and Willie Weems.

I don’t do soul source messaging as I rarely view these days.

 

The only reason for posting is that it’s going into someone's collection and unlikely to be seen again for a good while.

Ans as I said, was sold 10 minutes after finding, which was 6 hours before posting on here.

The only reason for posting is that it’s going into someone's collection and unlikely to be seen again for a good while.

So, obviously mistaken, thought people might like to see it as there was no previous record of that issue anywhere.

 

 

It is a brilliant post and I am not at all surprised it sold so rapidly.

I always love labels that press names incorrectly Mr Weems would be well happy

The production credit is interesting Pedrinho as opposed to James Shelton (Chicago). may it be a mistake or a remix perhaps ?

Pedrinho sling with Ademir Lemos was one of the 2 legendary dj’s in Rio at the end of the 60’s/70’s, principally Le Bateau club in Copacabana.

They made club mix LP’s and god knows what.

If you look on the Rare Foreign Northern Facebook group you’ll see some comp albums where both “produced” by Pedrinho

But playing Wally Cox, Darryll Stewart , George Tindley, Willie & the Magnificients plus a shed load more like Helen Curry et al before we knew of them says it all.

"As máximas do Pedrinho", Brazilian Deluxe compilation on Joda, Mary Queenie Lyons LP was issued in Brazil under that label too, they had Deluxe rights

Manhattans "I can't stand for you to leave me" among many other interesting tracks from Mickey Murray, James Duncan, Albert Washington and The Presidents, same guys who recorded the Spanish 45 only "It's your thing" version
