  1. Message from John Ellison: "I am sorry but I have no knowledge of this group and I can assure youthey were in no way affiliated with the Soul Brothers Six."-John Ellison
  2. It's quite possible that "John Ellison & the Soul Brothers Six" are not in anyway related to "Johnny and The Brothers of Soul" on Lifetime. The only solid link is Lester Osband's Cora Lee publishing appears on the Lifetime Recordings 45, and on the Philly Lyndell 45 by "Soul Brother Six". From this we can speculate the "Soul Brothers Six" did have some dealings with Osband, probably using his studio to at least cut demos. By 1967 "Soul Brothers Six" were already releasing records on Atlantic. So why would they issue a 45 as "Johnny & the Brothers of Soul" in early 1968? Not sure.
  3. Yes, Lifetime Recording was founded by the late Lester Osband, he passed away in 2009. It was a walk in studio located on North St. Rochester NY. I believe the building in no longer standing.

  6. Billboard magazine from March 1971. So was released back then. FACT! Not some new pressing from old tapes or a 1990s release as was speculated. Let's get that cleared up.
  7. If you deal with the guy regularly why don't you drop him a quick message asking for the story about how he came about stock of the Hymes 45. Please report back any response or lack of it. Thanks!
  8. Black and White Affair - Sweet Soul Lady - Topaz (Mint) - 125 GBP I have a couple of unplayed copies available; seen used ones listed at 200. Ships from Japan. Add 5 GBP for registered worldwide postage. Paypal as a gift works best for me.
