Description


Description

Surely the finest, best loved blue-eyed Soul group of them all, highly accomplished not only in vocal-harmony, instrumentation. They often also wrote, arranged, produced, they even pressed, released and marketed their own material.

After releasing 3 45s with local entrepreneur Jimmy Capps on the JCP label. These enterprising guys set up the own record label EEE "Embers Entertainment Enterprises" to deal with their live gigs, recording and promotion. This disc was a limited 1967 press, showcases their accomplished skills perfectly.

You would never guess this gathering were was made up of "Frat" friends as every element screams "Soul". So soulful is Jackie Gore's vocal, you'd be forgiven thinking this was The Ringleaders or any other Chicago group you care to mention singing; so ingrained in Soul is this recording. Georgeously tight vocals give no hint of their ethnicity, creamy voices and shrill girl group choruses are decorated by timely trumpet interventions. Every question box for a great soul record is ticked, even more so for a entry level for great Northern Soul dancer. The song ripples with all the right elements.

As good as the a-side is, do not overlook a flip, that also validates this gathering as the greatest blue-eyed Soul group of all-time, "We've Come A Way Together" also bristles with the love The Embers so blatantly had for Soul music, recording a Jimmy Radcliffe & Buddy Scott composition.

A real-deal TUNE...That unveils all this egotistical dick-waving of only collecting Soul records by "black" artists, as blinkered bullshit.
