Yes indeed fantastic once again. Respect Arthur. R.I.P. and thanks a lot Geoff for your fabulous sensitive and knowledgeable work in testimony of historical relevance to these beloved Detroit recording soul heroes.
Could the white southern guy Arthur refers to while walking into Sidra's office be Sam Coplin who did the Barbara Mercer 'Call On Me' deal with Capitol and then conceal in his suitcase soon as right after Sidra's shut down some reels to later re-record over the Precision's backing track of 'Such Misery' with the Stemmons Express 'Woman Lover, Thief' to release it on his own Texan Karma label and later lease it to Wand ?
I never heard of a Sam "Coplin". Did you mean Sammy Kaplan, who was a Detroit Soul producer and part owner of a few Detroit record labels?
