    FREDDY BUTLER PHOTO

    Hi all, Dug out another Detroit photo treat: Freddy Butler. This photo was taken on 28/2/1991. Jacqui Kavanagh and I contacted Freddy and arranged a meeting. He wasnt hard to find; he had a plumbing business ‘Fred and Sons’. He wanted to take us out for a meal. So he picked us up at our motel, which is where this picture was taken. He then drove us to a restaurant. On the way he put on an ‘8 Track’ of his ‘Dab of Soul’ LP and at one point sung along to ‘Deserted’...... priceless! Great voice still. We met him again after that and I interviewed him with a dictaphone. Freddy was exactly as he looks here; fun, friendly very approachable and amenable and happy; a truly lovely guy. I recall him telling us that he regularly played golf with his buddy Smokey Robinson! Another Detroit legend. Enjoy Tim

    Sammy was a lovely old guy; been around in the music business since the Big Band era. Jacqui Kavanagh and I had a few great meals out with Sammy and his son Sammy Junior and Laura Greene. Tragically he died in a house fire at his sisters in Alabama shortly after we last saw him. Another legend sadly gone.

    MIKE TERRY photo.

    He seemed to be doin ok. The neighbourhood he lived in; Teaneck, was a nice area then as I recall; not a run down or low economy area. I dont think he was livin a life of excess or luxury, but doin ok. I’ll transcribe the tapes i recorded for a fuller picture of Mike and his life.

    MIKE TERRY photo.

    Heres another photographic treat from my archives; the legend Mike Terry. This photo was taken by me, on 10th of April 1990, at Mikes home in Teaneck, New Jersey. Jacqui Kavanagh and I spent that afternoon with Mike and his wife, talking about his life and times in the music business. I interviewed him at length that day, using a dictaphone and cassette tape, and was the first person to ever interview him about his Northern/Motown years apparently. Everyone had been looking for Mike but in the wrong place....Detroit; he’d long since left there. I found him by mentioning him one day(as a long shot) to a music business legend Sammy Lowe, who used to find music business people for me. It turned out Mike lived around the corner from him! Bizarrely, given all the superb stuff Mike was involved in, he only actually had 1 piece of vinyl to his name; an album by the Atlanta Disco Band. I left that one with him, lol. Oh and the Baritone sax you see here is the one he used at Motown and on all the stuff we know and love. Did I get to hold it??? you bet!, and photographed with it too, lol. I have a postcard from Mike, sent to me shortly after Sammy Lowe gave me his address, and I’d written to him. In it Mike says that he played on 90% of the hits that came out of Motown. Enjoy Tim
