Truth - Exderin Headache / Come Back Home (Sounds Of Cleveland)

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

AWESOME 45 - Any more on the label? Never seen anything else. Also Devaki - Take it its the same group - See the Dunn & Bruce Street 45s - Again - Anymore releases?

Thanks in advance

Rich

Coming Home / Touch Me on Devaki.....superb 45, knocks the socks off other 45s that are 10 x the price! Dunn & Bruce Street on Devaki also have The Moment Of Truth which again is superb.

Had multiples of the Truth - Coming Home & Dunn Bruce Street - The Moment Of Truth 45s and recommended them to pretty much everyone that I knew! Two of my fave tracks and still (for now??) fairly easy to find.

Curiously the two involved on Devaki are related to The O'Jays. The creator (and owner?) was an ex-O'Jays (Bill Isles or Bobby Massey) and Dunn Pearson have been collaborting with The O'Jays in their Emi recordings. All is a Cleveland people "affair"...

The Truth 45 is brilliant, haven't heard any others on the label.

(If anyone needs a copy of the Truth 45 I've still got three copys listed on Gemm :lol: )

Was issued as soul45er has already mentioned flip is "Touch Me" Devaki DK 4001

Yes djmelisimo Larry Hancock lead vocalist and produced by Bobby Massey

Think Truth were a duo rather than a group as Mr Massey states in his thank you"s on the album sleeve

"(thanks) To Leo (Green) and Larry (Hancock) whos time has come, and rightfully so !

This is only thr beginning.........of TRUTH "

Devaki is the name of one of Bobby Massey"s kids

Would I be right in thinking this group 'Truth' are not the same as the group who did "What Direction" on Roulette :thumbup:

It's possible that the 'Truth' on Roulette are the group who became Moment Of Truth...(?), as M.O.T recorded for the same label prior to Salsoul.

temptations originally did coming home. was it written by dennis edwards. its the flip side of struck by lightning

twice. ive got em but not at hand. anybody confirm

dave

Yes. Both Devaki releases mentioned and the Temptations version of "Coming Home" were widely publicised at the time of release in articles/reviews in 'Echoes ' etc., as a consequence they were widely imported. Soul Bowl also had copies of the Truth album. The Dunn & Bruce St. and Truth sides on Devaki are still certainly underated however.

(There was a thread on this theme on here a little while back)

I believe records by The Imperial Wonders were actually around before Truth emerged on Devaki though.

They also list the band members as;

Leo Green

Larry Hancock

Will Thomas

Leon Green

William Grover

Phil Coghill

Doris Wallace

Margaret Foxworth

No mention of any other group on Roulette :thumbsup:

Cheers Paul

Paul, Moment Of Truth had a very good single out on Roulette

https://www.raresoulman.co.uk/sounds/exists...U_DON_T_SUCCEED

https://www.raresoulman.co.uk/sounds/exists...title=YOUR_LOVE

maybe a mix up between Truth & Moment Of Truth?

:thumbsup:

Far as I know the Moment Of Truth track is the same on both labels

Used to have a nice promo LP on Salsoul, think I've still got a UK Pye 45

The Truth LP on Devaki is called "Coming Home" DKH 4401

Can't help on the missing numbers tho I'll do some investigating

Cheers Paul

Was this released on Roulette?? :lol: Have it on a Philly Groove 12 with "Thank you girl for hanging on" on the other side (think it's on the 45 too...?). Absolutely superb tune IMO. :yes: Don't know if it's the same group.

Fredrik, I've got it wrong - if you have the record, I only assumed it was on Roulette as there is a group of that name on the label :yes:

Thanks for the correction, I only heard it once about 12 years or so back and have never come across it since.

As you say, whether it's the Cleveland group or not - who knows?

Can you post up a scan or the writer credits etc, there may be a clue there

Same group John/Fredrick . Quite an obscure release too :wicked:

Yes of course it's the same :huh: (A.Boyd/Larry Hancock credits on 12)

One wonders why this one from 1981 is so hard when the Devaki stuff from 1980 (at least the lp is from that year) is easy to find... :lol:

actually has anyone got the Philly Groove lable listing ?

Yep Simon, I've got a list of all the master recordings. PM me and I'll e-mail it over. I also have 12 albums worth of Philly Groove material plus all the instrumentals. Lots of interesting stuff on there!
