Gamble & Huff
« on: March 04, 2008, 11:29:26 AM »
Just saw G&H interview with Tavis Smiley and they introduced something very interesting.  Leo Sax (producer I think) just put together an LP of orphaned Philly sound R&B hits.  A series has been proposed called "Rarities".  They are putting together compilations of overlooked classic music.  Issued directly to vinyl for analog to analog reproduction, CDs have not been produced yet.  Fledgling project should be available for licensing negotiation.  Masters have been procured.  What do you think?  There is NO classic R&B on the TP list!

If not this, what about "Hot Buttered Soul" Isacc Hayes on Staxx records?

Whatever sounds good,  Do that!

This would certainl be a great addition to what we offer here. That was a glorious period in the history of R&B music. We can't go wrong with this suggestion.

What timing. I was just having a discussion with Mike Spitz yesterday on other topics, but this one came up. He used to work at Sigma Sound, and had recently seen our mutual friend Joe Tarsia, so we got to talking about that mother lode of great music. It is definitely on our want list.

Hey, that sounds good to me too! I wouldn't be opposed to a little " Tower of Power" either.
