Description


Description

There are many, many injustices in the music industry; really gifted hard working artists never receiving nearly enough credit for their exceptional output.
The body of work Fred Bridges, Richard Knight & Bobby Eaton amassed during their career is second to none. Not only was it consistently superior to most everything being created in their field, but also carried a "sound" of its own. Just like "Pied Piper" achieved and Motown mastered... as soon as you hear a few notes of "The Brothers Of Soul" work you just know it's them.

Their work with Ruby Andrews crafted some real beauties, for this Chicago label ran by the talented Ric Williams. Every 45 is collectable, her two Zodiac albums are massively craved by Soul collectors worldwide.

Before you today is her greatest creation of Northern Soul which isn't too challenging to acquire, if condition isn't your priority when purchasing top drawer NS.
Styrene fatigued, DJ circuit worn copies are quite easy to pick up, the trick is finding one that has never met a circuit Jock. That plays crisp clean and true.. this copy does..

Ruby Andrews singing "Just Loving You" epitomises what Bridges, Eaton & Knight were all about, working with Diva vocals weaving ;
Individually engineered premiership 60's Soul that was mostly shunned upon release because of the political beliefs and their out of studio struggle for human rights in the USA..

Seems some things still haven't changed, great talents in music, sport, film and science surpressed for what they believed in.

Leaving us wondering what would have become of this trio if they were "Yes" men without outspoken controversial beliefs of equality.. these "Yes" men may be regarded today worldwide as the geniuses they were.. instead they are just the very-best-loved writing trio of them all by the Northern Soul fraternity...
