  4. You Got The Power - Cameo Parkway Northern Soul CD Cameo Parkway was late to CD but the Northern Soul selections have been trickling onto CD/LP compilation releases legally now for a couple of decades, starting first with the 'Introduction to Northern Soul' boxset I think. Here is the first official CD dedicated entirely to the Northern Soul releases on the label I envisage, I could be wrong. In theory these are out now, but I haven't seen them anywhere and the big A lists them for September. Although I think I've got just about everything there from other compilations, it's still worth a buy for a couple of songs. There are separate Dance Craze and Chubby Checker CDs too. https://www.abkco.com/news-feed/cameo-parkway-compilations/ "You Got The Power: Cameo Parkway Northern Soul 1964 -1967, showcases the numerous Cameo Parkway singles that would go on to become part of the soundtrack of Britain’s Northern Soul lifestyle phenomenon. Northern Soul’s emphasis was on obscure yet danceable records, a number of which became the focus of a cult-like worship years after they were first issued, partially due to the rarity of the 45s on vinyl. Recordings by Frankie Beverly & The Butlers, Bunny Sigler, The Orlons, Evie Sands, Candy and the Kisses, Christine Cooper and Eddie Holman are highlights of the 20-track collection."

  6. For Sale: Impulse “I Really Love You/Get The Funk Off My Back” Kandi Two new previously unissued tracks from the same sessions that brought you the previous release “You Changed Me” and “What’s That Sound” in 2018. Firstly “I Really Love You" is an excellent modern soul dancer already being championed by Dj’s in the know, while “Get The Funk Off My Back” is a more funk influenced outing that would be at home in either a funk or modern soul set. Copies available at £12.00 each plus £3.25 postage (1st recorded, UK) overseas at cost. Again only a limited number of copies available therefore sorry only one copy per person To reserve PM @Louise or E-mail: david.welding@blueyonder.co.uk The Groups History: Impulse were (and are still in the main) a group of Milwaukee, Wisconsin musicians who during the 1970’s worked as the backing and touring band for another Milwaukee group The Quadraphonics , who during 1974, recorded a solitary 45 single “Betcha If You Check It Out/Prove My Love To You” for the Carl Davis/E. Rodney Jones owned Innovation II Record label. The Quadraphonics 45 would also land a subsequent national distribution on the major Warner Brothers label. The original members of Impulse were Michael Reese (Rhodes Piano and background vocals), Cedrick Rupert (Lead and Rhythm guitar), Jeffrey Williamson (Drums and background vocals) and Robin Gregory (Bass and background vocals).The band would later be joined by John Gee as their lead singer and fellow songwriter. John Gee had begun performing secular music in the late 60’s with another Milwaukee oufit, The Chefs, as their original lead singer from 1967 through to his departure in 1972. His replacement was Michael Moncrete who featured as the group’s lead on their desirable 1974 funk outing “Mr Machine” released on their own Pro-Gress Label. John Gee’s solo artist credits can be found on the 1980 release “Not Enough Love Makin’/You Are That Man (Why Don’t You Be That Man” on the Oakland C.A Pashlo label (Although recorded in Milwaukee). Followed by the 1985 modern soul dance floor favourite “So Good To Me/Just Get On” recorded under the artist name of Jon Pierre Gee on his own Kandi Inc, record label, as a 45/12” single and cd album project. Later projects included the 1995 Jon Pierre Gee & Touch album (featuring legendary rock drummer Anysley Dunbar (renowned for his work wth John Mayall, Frank Zappa, Whitesnake and Journey). Jon returned again in 2005, with the Ah’vant Soul cd album project,which featuring some of the former members of Impulse and Jon’s business and personal partner, Kat Webb. Jon also at one point sang with original drummer Billy “Stixs” Nicks version of the Jr. Walker’s All- Star Band. Returning to 1976 the musicians of Impulse migrated to Oakland California where they hooked up with a fellow Brewtown producer and recording artist, one Harvey Scales. Scales himself in 1976, through his earlier local hit “Glamour Girl” (recorded for the local Sauk City, Cuca Label) and a string of recordings for Lenny Lacour’s Magic Touch label. Of which “Get Down” had bought him both National and International attention after being picked up Atlantic Records was at the height of his powers. Further enhance by the success of Johnnie Taylors Columbia Records platinum hit “Disco Lady” a song Scales co-wrote. Under the auspice of Scales, Impulse recorded the self titled debut album project at Wally Heider’s Studio in San Francisco. The album was initially a proposed release for the Casablanca label which never materialised, a further offer from Jerry “The Ice Man” Butler to release the album on his newly formed Chicago label, Fountain Records also failed to materialise, leaving the album unreleased, It is from the surviving master tapes of these sessions that the above two tracks “I Really Love You/Get The Funk Off My Back” have been taken for the release of Impulse’s second 45 outing. Throughout all the above mentioned projects Jon has used and enjoyed performing with the original members of Impulse, as both musicians and co songwriters. They still from time to time perform together today (2020). With the exception of drummer Jeffrey Williamson who passed away during 2015, his replacement being Coley Jackson. Lead and Rhythm guitarist Cedrick Rupert who in the very late 70’s left the group to follow his heart and married a girl from Lake Charles, Louisiana, his home with the exception of a brief period of residing in Florida, until his recent passing in 2020. His replacements in Impulse included Joe Chatman and later Rudy Jacobs the original lead guitarist with Harvey Scales & The 7 Sounds. Words By David Welding. With Acknowledgements to Jon Pierre Gee.
  7. Soul Voices - 60s Big Ballads Details follow of a great new Kent Records release titled Soul Voices, 60s Big Ballads is the tag line and it most certainly lives up to that tag. Out right now on Cd, and also available via a mp3 sampler format, via both download and streaming services. A powerful and dramatic collection that demands to be played loud. Release Notes Preview Majestic male vocalists singing over subtly orchestrated arrangements of superb songs were the pinnacle of 1960s black music sophistication. Male soul balladeers from the 60s have always been particularly admired. Roy Hamilton, Walter Jackson, Lou Johnson and Ben E King – some of the A-listers featured here – epitomise the genre and have devoted followers. This grand sound evolved from the first soul records which emanated in the early 60s mainly in New York, where three quarters of the tracks here were recorded. Four are previously unissued. Kenny Carter’s ‘Big Bad Rain’ is a superb Larry Banks and Herman Kelley song, stunningly arranged by New York studio maestro Garry Sherman. Clarence Pinckney is lesser-known but delivers the Billy Terrell song ‘Just Outside Of Lonely’ with aplomb. Prolific recording artists Junior Lewis and Billy Watkins both add a new song to their already impressive CVs. Lewis’ recording is a demo of the tender Buddy Lucas song ‘I Love You So Much’ which was never covered for a release. Its sparse backing seems appropriate to the song, especially next to Jimmy Radcliffe’s ‘Through A Long And Sleepless Night’, which has a minimal arrangement but made it to 45. Billy Watkins sang in most soul styles in a 20-year Los Angeles recording career. His reading of the jazz standard ‘I Want To Be Loved’ was clearly Sam Cooke-inspired and reeks of sophistication.

  9. Word about an upcoming 45 release from Cannonball Records Previously unissued from Darrell Banks 'It's Not Fair To Me' The Lost Atlantic Recording Sessions New York 12/26/1967 Acetate Studio Demo Restored/Remastered + 2020 Version + Instrumental 3 tracks 7”/45rpm - Core Black Vinyl - Picture Sleeve Out End of July 2020 Although we are beyond 40 releases across the 3 labels, here we are at the milestone of #30 on our main outfit Cannonball Records. We just wanted to celebrate it with one special release. The cooperation between our label and Detroit’s finest Peoples Records dates back to our #004 Big Lee Dowell. The slow ballad on acetate that later became the record many of you know as “What I Done Wrong” in fact was among the tens of listenings me and Brad had on a sleepless winter night of 5 years ago in Detroit. We have been doing projects together ever since. Now it’s the case of this beautiful previously unissued recording that was part of a session Mr. Banks did on Boxing Day of 1967 at the legendary Atlantic Studios in New York. In particular 2 of the songs recorded on that day went lost for decades. Here we present one of them, trying to give it the deserved justice. No one know how the acetate made it there, but it was found and phisically restored by Brad in Detroit and being such an important find for the world of Soul we eventually managed to track down and inform Darrell’s’ sister Lois, who rounded up what remains of the family and gave us the green light to the project. We are testing the beta version of this new little software that does wonders when it comes to isolate vocals and, given the bouncing nature of the original song, we just thought a humble groovy alternate version would have been just perfect for the flipside. So we did. Being the man a treasured icon of the Northern Soul scene there’s plenty of bibliography out there that tells about this incredible Artist, who was moody and quick tempered although an overall mighty entertainer, so there’s no point in resuming here once again his life and career background. We are all going through difficult times and many of the historical racial issues that dominated the world at the times of Darrell Banks are not yet solved. In these sad sad times for the human race we are just proud to release a previously unissued song from yet another black man shot to death by a cop in the streets of Detroit on a spring day of 1970. Black Lives Matter. Always did and always will. #blacklivesmatter CBLL30 Darrell Banks "It's Not Fair To Me" 3 tracks 7" / 45rpm Out End of July 2020 Preorders https://www.cannonballsoul.com

Record Kicks is proud to present Chicago soul sensation The Devonns' self-titled debut album. "The Devonns" is out on JUNE 05 (New Release Date). The Devonns are a group of young musicians based in Chicago, Illinois. With their debut album, they take us back to the golden era of 70’s Chicago soul, drawing influences from bands such as The Dramatics, The Isley Brothers and Leroy Hutson, yet always bringing in their own unique modern twist. The album was produced by Paul Von Mertens (Mavis Staples, Paul McCartney, Elton John) and it sees the participation of percussionist, organist and guitarist extraordinaire Ken Stringfellow, best known for his work with REM since 1997. 1.Come Back 03:42 2.Green Light 03:25 3.Tell Me 04:05 video 4.Think I'm Falling In Love 04:58 5.Blood Red Blues (Protest Song) 04:24 video 6.More 04:35 7.Ain't That A Man For You? 03:06 8.I Know 04:46 9.So In Love With You 03:41 10.Long Goodbye 04:28 about The Devonns dust off the golden age of 70's Chicago Soul with their self-titled debut album on Record Kicks. Straight from the streets of Chicago, Illinois, The Devonns (pronounced "De vaughns") are the brand new soul outfit and the latest addition of the Record Kicks' family, whose self-titled debut album that drops April 03, is an assortment of influences taking us back to the heyday of soul. Drawing influences from bands such as The Dramatics, The Isley Brothers and Leroy Hutson, yet bringing in their own unique modern twist, influenced by artists such as Jamie Lidell and Raphael Saadiq; singer Mat Ajjarapu explains how unintentionally, the rich heritage of Chicago's history with soul music influenced him. "The city was at the epicentre of a lot of good music back in the 50's all the way to the 80's, a lot of the labels specialising in soul were based in the Chicago and we even had our own sound known as "Chicago soul". Through several years of crate digging it surprised me how many songs I loved were recorded in this city, for example one of my favourites is this great little song by The Natural Four, produced by Leroy Hutson 'Can This Be Real', and released via Curtom Records."
