  3. I'm only just finding this post from Dave, would loved to have contributed when it was still a current topic. Alas.... Matt Brown was also in the Men From Macon (with Robert Thomas already discussed as Matt's Cousin). In 2010 I published an article on Matt in my now defunct Georgia Soul blog. He was to attend a music school in the early 1970s but enlisted in the Air Force instead. Following his service, he did go to college in Philadelphia and returned to Macon in 1978 but did no further recordings.

  5. Difficult question to answer without Arthur himself to say. What I do know is that the studio where it was recorded advertised in local papers that anyone could come in with songs, record them, get them pressed and handed over to you to market for a flat fee. How exactly Carl Queen came to release this and the other three soul/funk records on his label I don't know. Carl himself told me that he didn't market them and he didn't even remember Arthur. Rickey Andrews told me he went in with his own musicians and recorded four songs. Two came out on Queen's label, and he put the other two out himself some years later on his own RWA label - he had to buy the tapes from the studio to do that second 45. So, when we think of record labels operating within the music industry, this operation was not your traditional "let's service radio, try for a hit and make lots of money". This was more of a vanity operation where they made money on the studio side and let the artist figure out the rest. Where Rickey Andrews had his own musicians from his nightclub experience, the studio would also have session musicians on hand to either work up the music if it wasn't charted out, or just to read the charts and record. They recorded some talent show winners this way as well. So the "target" in this case, as it were, may have just been Arthur Willis's dream to record and get on the radio - there's no evidence he got any radio play either. Unless and until he is found (I along with quite a few others have looked), there are questions here for which we may never have answers

  6. If memory serves, this one was a bogus listing. The record never existed and was not listed by an honest seller.

  7. There was one legit AW that went through eBay from the Birmingham dealer. I didn't realize you were talking about Rickey Andrews though hence my questions and confusion.

  8. Been through ebay over a dozen times??? Are you counting bootlegs too? I've also seen no evidence of a small find around 2011, only rumor.

  10. Rickey Andrews answered an ad in the paper to record at Perfection Sound, with whom Carl Queen was affiliated at the time.

  11. You may have a point, but I'm not entirely sure Carl Queen worked in sequential order.

  12. When you look at the full output of the label, particularly the four Soul/Funk records on the label, and consider the studio in Smyrna where it where it was recorded, all in their totality, you'll put this closer to 1975 than 1970. Either way, absolutely, 100% not a 60s record.

  13. Circa '75, give or take.

  14. So anyway, we're up to what - five copies now?

  15. There are only four Soul/Funk 45s on the label. Everything else they released is country and bluegrass.
