I Forgot How Good This Was

Recommended Posts

I agree with you Pete!

Who doesn't like this one? Detroit soul at its very very best. The Masqueraders made very few poor records, and lots of absolutely sensational ones.

Yep great sound, had the pleasure of dancing to it sat during Mark Bicknells spot at Soulgirls birthday bash in Bournemouth.

Funny thing is Pete last time I was at this venue ( Jo Wallace birthday) you were Djing and I think you played it then, certainly you played Monique, Nat 4, Majestics, didn't you have yours around this time?

Cheers

Years ago, at Yate, John Farrell accosted me with a copy of "How" in one hand and their "I got the power" in the other. I couldn't afford both, so went for "I got the power". I've often wondered if I made the right decision, and although "How" is great, I still think I bought the right one!

"How' is one of those records that gets in your head and stays there. A spacey, speedy sound.

One of the great things about the Masqueraders is how they managed to sound so different on the many great record they made.

You've got a good memory mate, though I actually did two hours cos someone didn't turn up, yes I had a stack of originals back then but obviously I sold them all - Stuart T had Monique, no idea who had Masqueraders...was about 4 years back that wasn't it?

Beautiful sound, very chilled - as Billy said; spacey. Lovely harmonies. Satisifyingly long instrumental break. Gorgeous from the the first note till the last.

When I hear records like this I often wonder if anyone in Detroit actually went to the record store and bought it? Did it get played at any local "record hops"? Did any DJ's plug it on the radio? Did any teens in the projects spin it endlessly on a bedroom Dansette (or the US equivilant)?

I guess we'll never know. Yet another piece of sublime soul artistry that probably sank without a ripple...

Yeah sounds about right, simple reason I remember your spot was simply coz it was so bloody good that in the last 6/7 years the only 60s spot I've heard better than that was Shiftys

BTW I had your Majestics Demo and Nat 4 WD off you :lol:
